Fixed-speed compressors have greater efficiency with a small footprint

Atlas Copco has upgraded its 30 to 45 kW range of fixed-speed oil-injected rotary screw compressors to offer a smaller footprint, lower noise and a more compact design. The GA 30+, GA 37 and GA 45 compressors provide greater efficiency, with Free Air Delivery (FAD) and a Specific Energy Requirement (SER) improved by 1% respectively, says the company. Noise levels

System produces oil free air

Mattei Compressors air system, uses advanced filtration equipment in conjunction with an oil-lubricated compressor to generate oil-free air that meets ISO 8573-1:2010 Class 0 or ISO 8573-1:2010 Class 1 standards. The Absolute Zero Oil-Free Air System packages a Mattei oil-lubricated compressor with high-efficiency coalescing filters and an advanced adsorption filter. The coalescing filters reduce oil aerosols while the adsorption filter

VSD compressors improve flow and energy savings

Atlas Copco has added three models to its range of oil-injected rotary screw compressors to give larger industrial air users a 20% average improvement in free air delivery and energy savings of up to 35%. Complementing the existing fixed speed GA160+-315 range, the new VSD additions comprise the GA200VSD, GA250VSD and an upgraded version of the GA315VSD, with three pressure

Compressors feature twin-cylinder design

The 2380 series air compressors from Thomas are for pressure/vacuum and high flow, suitable for industrial applications. The 2380 provides 100 psi (6.9 bar) max pressure with open flow of 2.3 cfm (65 l/min). The compressors are fan-cooled and features a one-piece monolithic head.  Weighing 12 pounds, the 2380 is 9.31″ (236.5 mm) long x 5.14″ (130.6 mm) wide x

Compressors have twin-cylinder design

Thomas has launched the 2380 series twin WOB-L® piston oil-less air compressor.  The series is designed for pressure/vacuum and high flow, with suitability for a range of applications including medical, dental, industrial packaging/printing, and environmental in pond aeration. The 2380 provides 100 psi (6.9 bar) max pressure with open flow of 2.3 cfm (65 l/min).  The new 2380 series is fan-cooled

Screw compressors feature VSD technology

Starting mid-2016, more of Atlas Copco’s GA oil-injected rotary screw compressors will be available with energy-saving variable speed drive plus (VSD+) technology. Atlas Copco has been phasing in this new technology. Until now, only GA 7-37 compressors came with VSD+. But that will change soon. Starting in mid-June, all pack and full feature versions of the GA 37, GA 45,

Compressed air dryers ensure high-quality air

Drypoint AC compressed air adsorption dryers from Beko Technologies come in 10 sizes for volumetric flow rates from 100 to 1000 m³/h and operating pressures from 4 to 16 bar (gauge). The cold-regenerated adsorption dryers extract moisture from the compressed air to a pressure dew point. The cold-regenerated dryers ensure a continuous supply of high-quality air. They are equipped with an efficient compressor

Compressor technology deal goes global

WABCO has entered into a long-term agreement with Cummins to manufacture and supply high-performance air-compressor technology globally. “Alongside making further use of WABCO’s world-class engineering capabilities in the Americas and Europe, Cummins also increases access to WABCO’s current and next-generation air-management technologies,” said Jon Morrison, WABCO President, Americas. “Cummins diesel engines set industry standards for innovation, power and reliability, and

Refrigerants approved for screw compressors

Following an extensive qualification program, compressor specialist Bitzer has announced approval of the R1234yf and R1234ze(E) HFO refrigerants for its CSH and CSW screw compressors. The two alternatives to R134a have a global warming potential (GWP) of under ten, while the GWP of R134a is around 1,400. With a GWP of about 600 each, the HFO/HFC blends R513A and R450A

Temperature control system is re-engineered

Mokon has re-engineered its temperature control system to combines a circulating water system and an Iceman chiller to provide heating and chilling from a single compact, self-supporting unit. . “The newly re-engineered Full Range system was designed with our customers in mind,” says Robert Kennery, Mokon’s vice president of sales and marketing. The system is for use with jacketed vessels, reactors,
