BOGE says everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 and energy efficiency in compressed air systems. But, says the company, real innovation means leading the field in knowledge and technology. Under the motto “Designed to take the lead,” BOGE Kompressoren says it pioneering compressed air solutions such as the S-4 Optimus screw compressor. This machine is a development study showing how “quiet, efficient and smart” will look in the future. The S-4 Optimus screw compressor follows on from the S-4 series launched at the end of last year. There is also a 75 kW S-4 Optimus prototype, the first step in the development of a new series which will be even more reliable, more energy-efficient and smarter in terms of control than the systems commercially available, says BOGE.
Also new is the K 15 N2 Booster, which means this system is now able to compress nitrogen, for example, from an upstream PSA generator to a higher final pressure – flexible operation 100 percent free of oil. The compressor compresses dry gases between 2 and 10 bar with pressure dew points as low as -40 °C. The free air delivery rate is 2,418 l/min with a drive power of 11 kW and final pressures between 16 and 32 bar. A typical application example is laser cutting.
