Gardner Denver champions latest oil-free solutions at drinktec 2017

Gardner Denver will be championing its leading oil-free compressor and vacuum technology at this year’s drinktec, taking place 11–15 September at the Messe München exhibition centre, Munich.

CompAir’s oil-free Ultima and Scroll compressors

Available on Stand 107 in Hall A4, the company’s revolutionary new energy efficient oil-free compressor, Ultima, will be centre stage at the world’s leading trade fair for the beverage and liquid food industry.

Available as part of the company’s compare PureAir brand, Ultima offers up to 12 per cent improved energy efficiency compared with a conventional two-stage machine, with a roughly 37 per cent smaller footprint.

The revolutionary new compressor is available in models from 75kW to 160kW and is designed for best in class performance, for applications that demand the highest levels of air quality and purity. The 160kW model will be available on the stand for visitors to see.

In addition, Ultima supports iConn, a new cloud-based, air management platform that enables operators to manage, optimise and improve compressed air-based services. With Industry 4.0 driving manufacturers to share and analyse asset data, iConn has been developed to deliver advanced analytics, enabling operators to stay in control of compressed air systems.

Gardner Denver will also be exhibiting the new S-Series of oil-free scroll compressors from CompAir. With compressed air purity absolutely crucial for the beverage and food sector, the range is certified to ISO 8573-1 Class 0 and silicone free, ensuring the highest standards of air quality.

Belliss & Morcom VH21 oil-free compressor

In PET bottle blowing, optimum efficiency and performance is key, as any issues with the transfer of power from the compressor motor can result in significant energy loss. In fact, it is estimated that belt drive system inefficiencies can result in an additional 12 per cent on energy bills.

Gardner Denver will be exhibiting Belliss & Morcom’s VH21 oil-free compressor, which incorporates a unique shaftless motor to deliver assured drive efficiency, and requires no drive system maintenance. As a result, organisations can be assured of a robust, reliable and efficient system.

Having supplied compressors to some of the largest PET bottle blowing plants around the world, Belliss & Morcom’s oil-free range provides a tried and trusted solution. Visitors to Gardner Denver’s stand will be able to find out more about the VH21 model and Belliss & Morcom’s other highly efficient oil-free compressors for the PET bottle blowing market.

Robuschi’s ROBOX energy screw compressor

With the food and beverage sector dependent on wastewater treatment plants to provide clean water for processes such as bottle washing, the industry requires a proven and assured compressor solution to meet these stringent demands.

Having recently won the prestigious Environmental and Energy Efficiency award at the 2017 Motion Control Industry Awards, Robuschi’s ROBOX triple-impact energy screw compressor is ideal for energy-intensive wastewater treatment and processing plants, offering savings of up to 30 per cent.

The smart process control tool with HMI interface optimises airflow and is essential in achieving the energy savings so important in reducing life cycle costs. The new machine has a smaller footprint than comparable equipment and can be installed easily in existing compressor rooms, helping to avoid additional capital expenditure.

Extensive offering from Elmo Rietschle

Elmo Rietschle will be exhibiting three key products at drinktec 2017: the S-VSI 300 screw vacuum pump, G-2BH1600 side channel blower and L-SV 2SVT liquid ring pump.

Driven by two parallel screw rotors, the oil-free S-VSI range can achieve an ultimate vacuum of 0.1mbar, while its low rotational speed ensures low noise and vibration throughout operation. The S-VSI range’s contact-free technology ensures constant vacuum performance, while minimising maintenance and the associated downtime and costs, delivering greater productivity as a result.

Robust yet lightweight, the G-Series side channel blower range is available in a range of performances up to 3,000m3/h, with differential pressures offered up to 1,000mbar.

Suitable for even the most extreme conditions, the L-SV 2SVT liquid ring pump uses high-quality materials such as stainless steel and ceramics to resist corrosion and abrasion, offering a reliable pump solution for the beverage and liquid food market.
