With the increase in demand for uninterrupted compressed air with higher energy efficiency, Matrix (Pvt) Limited organized a seminar on ”Energy Efficient Solutions in Compressed Air Generation ” jointly with Principals BOGE Germany recently at the Cinnamon Grand Hotel Colombo.
The seminar saw the participation of over 150 senior executives from various industries such as textile, apparel, solid tyre, ceramic, food, PET bottling and general Manufacturing industries.
BOGE presented the latest compress air solutions and technologies for the energy-efficient production with a special focus on new high-speed-turbo (HST) technology, which allows cost savings of up to 30 percent compared to conventional oil-free screw compressors.
Gavin Monn, Senior Vice President- Sales, BOGE, presented the new high-speed-turbo compressors (HST).
With its development, BOGE achieved decisive improvements compared to the current products by radically reducing the number of components and introducing extremely intelligent design principles.
With innovative turbo drive, the HST compressors produce 100 percent Class 0 oil-free compressed air. Thanks to a highly efficient compression principle and minimal energy consumption, HST produced the maximum results when it comes to efficiency.
Cost savings of up to 30 percent compared to conventional oil-free screw compressors is well within reach. The new compressors are driven by a permanent magnet motor, which is characterised by a very high energy density. The outstanding feature: BOGE has now succeeded for the first time in using air-lubricated bearings in the drive shaft – which is a prerequisite for extremely high speeds of well beyond 120,000 rotations.
