BEKOKAT: compressed air treatment using catalyst technology

beko-sept-14A cost effective solution to achieve oil-free compressed air

A constant supply of oil-free compressed air with a barely detectable max. residual oil content of 0.001 milligram per cubic metre – this is what the new catalyst system from compressed air specialist BEKO TECHNOLOGIES Ltd is able to deliver.
    
With this high level of efficiency, the BEKOKAT devices can even sail past the stringent oil content stipulations of ISO 8573-1, class 1. At the same time, the new functional principle breaks down technical and economic barriers that are usually imposed on conventional compressed air treatment, especially when it involves applications with extremely high requirements.

METPOINT LKD – Leak detector that detects every leak precisely and quickly

metpoint-july-1-14In times of rising energy prices, huge amounts of money are wasted in leaks. Small leaks can make up a large part of the costs for compressed air. With the small and easily operable METPOINT LKD Leak detector the leaks in the system can be detected within a short time.

The METPOINT LKD detects the ultrasound, transforms it into an audible sound and indicates it optically. The METPOINT LKD operates with extreme reliability. As only those frequencies are detected which occur in the event of leakage, precise location of the leaks is ensured under all types of industrial noise conditions.

BEKO TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCE WINNER OF IPAD

beko-may-2-2014At the recent Air-Tech exhibition BEKO TECHNOLOGIES, a market leader in compressed air treatment challenged visitors to the show to test their knowledge of compressed air quality to win an IPAD. The challenge was to identify compressed air quality at different points of a circuit. The overall winner, selected at random from the correct answers was Andy Jones of Mattei Compressors Ltd. Martin Potter, General Manager for BEKO TECHNOLOGIES UK awarded Andy with his well-earned prize.

As you can imagine the draw of winning an IPAD attracted many people to the stand all wanting the chance to win. The surprise was that with several hundred attempts to identify the correct answers there were actually only around 15 correct responses. This does go some way to highlight the skills gap we have with compressed air knowledge. Outside of electricity, compressed air is the second highest energy consumer. A lack of knowledge here is costing the industry additional energy costs and an area that needs to be looked at closely.
