Danish hospital ensured of 100% oil-free air 24/7

Antwerp, Belgium - October 7, 2014: When the Righospitalet in Copenhagen had to replace one of their stationary oil-free air compressors, the hospital needed a backup solution. To bridge the period between the breakdown and the arrival of the new compressor, the hospital rented oil-free air from Atlas Copco Rental.

Compressed air for medical purposes

The hospital uses compressed air for all kinds of surgery, laboratory and other medical devices. It is of utmost importance that the compressed air is 100% oil free. With our PTS1600 diesel compressor and CD780 absorption dryer, impeccable air quality is guaranteed.

Catch a drop

If the air pressure in the hospital would drop, our PTS1600 compressor would start up automatically. This enables the hospital to ensure consistent air pressure at all times.

One of largest workplaces in Denmark

The Righospitalet is a highly specialized hospital in Copenhagen, organized under the Capital Region of Denmark. With 8,000 employees it is one of the largest workplaces in Denmark.

“With the 100% oil-free backup air of Atlas Copco Rental we are ensured impeccable air quality at all times.”

Jens-Ole Hansen, Head of Machinery at the Righospitalet
