BOGE launch new oil-injection cooled screw compressor
Latest C 16 F(D) compressor sets new standards in the 11kW performance class
BOGE Compressors, suppliers of industrial compressed-air systems, have launched a new oil-injection cooled screw compressor that supplies high free air delivery and delivers energy-efficient and quiet performance.
Designed to meet widely fluctuating compressed-air demands and to allow users to make significant energy-savings, the BOGE C 16 F(D) is said to provide the highest free air delivery of any 11kW compressor on the market. This is achieved through the use of a BOGE’s most efficient air-end to date, the BOGE effilence, which provides high performance whilst using low levels of power thanks to its highly efficient IE3 motor.
The C 16 F(D) compressor features integrated frequency control suited to end-users with fluctuating compressed-air demands. The frequency converter ensures the delivery of continuous free air in a 25–100% control range. If demand for compressed air drops, the compressor’s energy use falls, eliminating idling times and reducing energy consumption by as much as 30%.
A silenced intake filter and sturdy cast iron housing allow the C 16 F(D) compressor to be used in much closer proximity to workplaces than is normally possible. The air system has also been specially designed for easy servicing and maintenance. Information is communicated on a high-resolution colour display, while touch-screen buttons make it simple to operate for the user.
For superior control, operators can fit BOGE’s modular focus 2.0 control unit, which provides total and easy control of all compressor functionalities and allows up to four compressors to be used in combination.
‘The C 16 F(D) is one of the quietest and most energy-efficient compressors available,’ said Mark Whitmore, general manger of BOGE Compressors. ‘It can be a real asset for businesses looking to cut their energy usage without risking the quality of compressed air. The C 16 F(D) is available with a maximum pressure of 8, 10 and 13 bar, and free air delivery from 0.46 to a maximum 1.99 cubic metres per minute.’
