New era in the pro­duc­tion of oil-free com­pressed air

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - ENERGY EFFICIENCY -

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.
