COMPRESSED AIR RESOLUTION 2014

dec-2013-beko2If a compressed air user wants to make a New Year resolution for 2014 then BEKO TECHNOLOGIES strongly advise to focus on one simple area.  That could be to stop letting air go from 7barg to atmosphere without doing any useful work or work that could be done more efficiently or less costly. The area that would come to mind for most engineers would be leaks. It is well known these days that compressed air is not cheap. It is in fact less efficient power source than electricity but has many other benefits such as safety, ergonomic lightweight tools to mention a couple of reasons that engineers select compressed air driven products.

Better, Best, BEKOMAT!

dec-2013-bekoIn 1982 Berthold Koch revolutionised the treatment of compressed air condensate with his first version of the BEKOMAT, electronic, level sensing, zero-loss drain. Since then there have been more than 2,000,000 BEKOMAT’s sold and of course many competitive versions launched.

So more than 30 years later, product management in Neuss Germany realise that there are no quantum changes possible on BEKOMAT. Therefore their job involves a regular sounding in the market place with customers, service engineers, salesmen and BEKO TECHNOLOGIES subsidiaries to find out, “what are the incremental changes that we can make to improve the product across all disciplines?”

HOW TO BUY A COMPRESSED AIR DRYER

beko-oct-13-2Surely it’s easy there are fridge dryers for 3°C Pressure Dew Point and desiccants for anything below that? In principle “Yes” says Chris Norris UK Service Manager for BEKO TECHNOLOGIES. “There are umpteen different ways to take it further than this simple rule. The client should ask himself several questions such as:-

  • What will be the lowest temperature in the system?
  • Does the equipment requiring dry compressed air have a specification for dewpoint?
  • What will be the flow and the variations?
  • Is power available?
  • What is the budget?
  • Does the budget include for installation
  • Will the addition of this piece of equipment and possibly filters mean raising the pressure because of inevitable pressure loss through a system
  • Will my compressor go to this higher pressure
