Food and beverage manufacturers rely on compressed air for several business-critical applications, from product filling, to automated product sorting, to product packaging systems. At Fluid-Aire Dynamics, we’re committed to providing commercial air compressors, parts and services that keep your business operating at full force.
When it comes to compressed air, the largest concern for the food and beverage industry is keeping it free of impurities like dust, water, and oil. There is also large concern around microbial contamination of air lines, which can lead to product waste and/or consumer harm. Food and beverage manufacturers need “Class 0” air quality that supports SQF and NFS standards. That’s where Fluid-Aire Dynamics comes in. We’ve helped our food and beverage customers meet industry standards by supplying inline filtration and ensuring their dryer is correctly sized for their system.
We have also seen food and beverage manufacturers who experience unstable air pressure at the points of use, leading to inconsistent product output. If this sounds familiar to your business, we recommend evaluating the need to upsize your compressor, maintaining your air tools that may use excessive amounts of air, or checking for leaks in your piping/connections.

Aside from common compressed air challenges, several of manufacturers want to generate their own nitrogen to use in situations like extending product shelf life or sterile packaging. Fluid-Aire Dynamics works with these customers to design and implement a nitrogen generation system that eliminates the need for bottled nitrogen, thus saving their business significant money.
Finally, with compressed air audit, food and beverage manufacturers can identify fluctuations in their compressed air system. We have used this to help our customers determine whether or not a variable speed drive compressor and/or refrigerated air dryer would save them money on their electric bill. These clients also have taken advantage of their energy provider incentives programs, resulting in as low as $0 capital expenditure on their new compressor!
