Compressed Air/Compressors

From small beginnings……..

BEKO TECHNOLOGIES started out from one man’s vision to save companies money whilst benefitting the environment. To give some background to this, compressed air is widely used across most of industry and it is estimated that 15% of the power generated in a country is re­used to create compressed air. Berthold Koch was frustrated to see that most compressor condensate devices either worked inefficiently or wasted a significant amount of compressed air.

Oil Free Air or ISO 8573¬1 Oil Class 1 Users

BEKO Technologies are pleased to announce a new and we believe unique service to users of high quality compressed air. For the last 2 years BEKO Technologies have been selling the METPOINT OCV to customers who are required to have a regular in­line monitoring of the residual hydrocarbon vapour in their compressed air stream. A number of customers have asked us for the possibility to measure multiple points in their systems several times a year and this makes a stationary system uneconomical. The solution is the Mobile METPOINT.

The device has multiple measuring modes and will measure the following parameters plus the flow through the device which is useful if the whole compressed air stream is being

Residual oil content (in the form of vapour) in mg/m3

Pressure dewpoint in ̊ Ctd

Temperature in ° C

Relative humidity in %

Operating pressure in bar (g)

Compact Flow Sensors from BEKO Technologies

Energy costs are high and set to go even higher. The beleaguered factory manager has to try to mitigate the impact of this together with all the other issues of the day that face him or her. Most companies addressed the problem that given 3 compressors 1 was just feeding the leaks in a campaign style activity...end of story...no sadly the leaks will come back or occur in other locations for a variety of reasons such as airline contamination, lack of maintenance just to mention a couple of the many.

BEKO Technologies launch new range of filters

BEKO Technologies have launched an upgraded version of their CLEARPOINT filter range. The CLEARPOINT 3E filter elements with 3E being “Energy Efficient Element” covers the range 35-34680 m³/hr at 7 bar with high pressure variants available up to 500 bar.

The innovative new element together with flow optimisation and corrosion protected housings mean that CLEARPOINT offers reliable filtration at significantly reduced operating costs.

The new elements are constructed without binding agents. The new medium, micro-fine borosilicate fibres are thermally fused The high number of fibres with smaller diameter ensures a finer fibre structure giving a separation surface 4 times larger than conventional media and also with a larger void volume.

The next big thing?

35 years ago the salesperson selling compressed air generation and treatment equipment had very few tools at his disposal. Many systems were oversized because there was no low cost means of deciding the size of the system so educated guesswork was the order of the day. The only scientific way to determine component sizes was to note all equipment consuming compressed air and then observe the cycles or take a usage factor ie if using a drill it is unlikely that the drill would be in constant use as the hole would normally be drilled to insert a screw or bolt. Even doing this usually led to a calculation which would oversize a system because the biggest sin would be to not have a system with adequate capacity. Air quality was poor relative to today.
