New era in the production of oil-free compressed air
With the development of its new high-speed turbo (HST) technology, BOGE is ushering in a new era in compressed air. The expert in compressed air is achieving decisive improvements compared to the current state of the art by radically reducing the number of components and introducing an extremely intelligent design principle. With innovative turbo drive, the HST compressors produce 100 percent Class 0 oil-free compressed air – at the highest degree of efficiency and with minimal maintenance effort. Cost savings of up to 30 percent compared to conventional oil-free screw compressors are realistic.
With the high-speed turbo technology, BOGE is achieving decisive improvements compared to the current state of the art: thanks to a highly efficient compression principle and minimal energy consumption, HST ensures maximum results when it comes to efficiency. The new compressors are driven by a permanent magnet motor, which is characterised by a very high energy density. The outstanding feature: BOGE has now succeeded for the first time in using air-lubricated bearings in the drive shaft – which is a prerequisite for extremely high speeds of well beyond 100,000 rotations. values. This is most evident in idle mode where the energy required is below 1.9 percent of the rated power. One of the reasons why the HST compressor achieves this extremely low efficiency value is because there is no fan motor taking up additional energy. Overall, it was possible to reduce the total costs compared to oil-free screw compressors by up to 30 percent. The HST compressors are available with heat recovery as an optional extra.
