Compressed Air/Compressors

The piggy bank for both your wallet and the environment

airw j 2013bBuying a new air compressor is a large investment for both large and small companies. But in fact, a compressor’s investment cost is very low if you look at a compressor’s life cycle.

Approximately 75% of the total cost is power / energy costs. If you are thinking of investing in a new compressor, it is this cost we at Worthington Creyssensac will try to minimize.

Worthington Creyssensac offers a brilliantly engineered solution to save energy in your compressed air production: the frequency driven compressor.

MODULAR DRYER DESIGN FOR EVERDRY ADSORPTION DRYERS

bekevryAt the COMVAC HANNOVER, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES presented the innovative variant of the EVERDRY FRA-V 2000C adsorption dryer. The special feature of this design is the modular concept, which allows for the separation of the adsorber containers from the pipework module, and for the reconnection in just a few steps. Through this structure, even larger plants can be packed in standard sea containers. This drastically reduces the transport and packaging costs and offers optimum protection to the plant during long sea journeys.

BEKOMAT UPGRADE FOR INCREASED SERVICEABILITY

bekmatIn the field of condensate technology, there is also news at the COMVAC HANNOVER 2013 at BEKO TECHNOLOGIES: the upgrade version of the BEKOMAT 31, 32, and 33 condensate drains with improved serviceability.

The upgrade version of the BEKOMAT 31/32/33 series has an integrated service indicator which informs you of upcoming maintenance in a timely manner. The employment of a multi-voltage power supply unit for the energy supply from 85 to 265 Vac, at 50-60Hz, reduces the variants. With the higher protection class IP67, the condensate drains are not only reliably protected against the admission of dust, they are also sealed to such an extent that temporary submersion in water will not damage them. Therefore, they are an ideal solution for the most severe ambient conditions.

A & B Air Systems and BEKO TECHNOLOGIES lower costs at a food manufacturer

Everdry222A & B Air Systems and BEKO TECHNOLOGIES have helped lower costs at a leading European food manufacturer. Their customers are most of the leading high street food chains.


The quality of compressed air is always an important topic in food production. At one site there are 2 compressor systems; the high quality oil free and dried to  -40°C pressure dew point for the air which is in contact with the product and a general purpose stream for operation of pneumatic components which comes from  lubricated compressors with filters to 0.01ppm oil carry over and +3°C pressure dew point.

COMPRESSED EFFICIENCY IN A SINGLE BOX

bdl1111Compressors are responsible for 10% of all the power consumed in a mature industrial society like the UK and Ireland. Frequently 10% or more of this air will be wasted because of leakage caused by poor maintenance, bad design of air lines, acidic condensate attacking seals and joints just to name a few of the possibilities. Therefore it makes sense to do regular audits on the power consumed, flow, pressure, dew point and leakage as a starting point. Is this commonly done? Matthew Harrison, Regional Sales Manager at BEKO TECHNOLOGIES says, “No this type of extensive measurement is rare but smart companies are realising that you can’t know too much about what is happening within your compressed air network. You can avoid problems and be sure that you are operating to an efficiency that is acceptable if you regularly even better have a permanent output of key parameters within the system. Now that the BEKO Data Logger is available it is very easy for me and BEKO TECHNOLGIES colleagues to monitor up to 12 outputs per BDL installed which is plenty for the normal compressed air system.

Medical Compressed Air

beko11The uses of compressed air are pretty much universal from pumping up your car tyres to sophisticated control systems for industrial processes. In the medical sphere compressed air is used to operate simple mechanical devices such as drills and saws, ventilators and as a carrier gas in anaesthesia and inhaled medications. Compressed air at source is ambient air which has passed through a mechanical device(the compressor) which in industrial applications sometimes comes into contact with the lubricating oil. In more “quality” applications the compression chamber is usually dry of any lubricating medium.
