Hassle-free Commitment 

All we need from you is the necessary land and utility hookups. Air Technologies®, OTC’s DIRECTAIR® team, will handle the rest, including supplying, installing, and operating your new compressor system. There will be a monthly fee included based on the customer’s compressed air consumption, with similar billing to what a manufacturer gets from their electrical power supplier.  

Lower Costs 

There are no emergency rental, repair, or parts costs. Moreover, the modern, energy-efficient equipment and controls significantly reduce electric bills, the need for additional personnel, and operating costs. Also, plant space is freed up for production. 

DIRECTAIR® is a “fee for service” with flexible term lengths. Monthly payments are an operating expense providing tax benefits.  

Space-saving Equipment 

DIRECTAIR® can buy back existing industrial compressed air equipment so that you can recover plant space previously used for your old compressor equipment. This will allow for better working conditions and more plant space for other projects.
