Atlas Copco demonstrated its 100% oil-free and energy saving PET bottling compressors at “China Brew & Beverage 2008”

2008-10-31

Beijing, China, October 20-23rd, 2008: Atlas Copco’s energy saving ZD PET bottling compressor, the world’s first PET bottling compressors being “ISO 8573-1 Class O” certified as 100% oil-free, was demonstrated at the exhibition.

Compressed air is an essential resource in PET packaging and total absence of oil or pollutants is a crucial requirement. The only way to guarantee absolutely oil-free air in the bottling process is to totally eliminate oil from the air circuit. Atlas Copco’s ZD 40 bar compressor is a combination of an “ISO 8573-1 Class O” 100% oil-free VSD screw and piston technologies. Throughout the entire compression, air is never in contact with oil.
 
By uniting the two compression technologies, the ZD 40 bar compressor is highly effective. The booster brings the air to the 40 bar required for PET blowing, and because the compression can start from dry 7 bar air instead of atmospheric air, the booster needs only half of the suction and discharge valves of traditional compressor solutions. Together with VSD technology it reduces energy consumption by as much as 30%.
 
With its ‘plug & play’ concept, no foundations are needed and only one connection point is required, thus minimizing installation costs. Moreover, with its silencing canopy, the ZD 40 bar compressor has noise levels of less than 70 dB(A) complying with CE directives and USA OSHA standards.
