Compressed Air/Compressors

Danone Waters UK & Ireland cut operating costs

Brecon Hills, nr Swansea United Kingdom, November 2006, Danone, the worldwide manufacturer of food and beverage products, is using Parker Hannifin's innovative NitroSource nitrogen generation system to produce a consistent and controllable supply of nitrogen on-site.

The nitrogen supply is used as part of a transfer mechanism to provide an inert blanket. Perhaps most importantly, the use of the NitroSource system has enabled Danone to blanket water storage vessels in order to prevent bug growth and hazardous chemicals for fire prevention

Danone is the leader in the beverage industry with worldwide brands such as Volvic and Evian along with UK brands including Green Valley as well as a new range of flavored beverages under the brand of Shape aimed at reinforcing the healthy lifestyle ethos which Danone promotes. The Brecon Hills manufacturing facility processes 18, 000 bottles per hour through the plant, with a six man team operating the machinery per shift.

The NitroSource system is based on Parker Hannifin's hollow fibre membrane technology, which separates air into nitrogen and an oxygen-enriched air stream. The system comprises a main unit that can be expanded with the addition of a further five subunits and, thanks to a master/slave feature, up to 11 main units and their associated subunits can be combined and controlled as if they were one.

Oil-free Rotary Screw Compressors

Oil Free CompressorDH Series
DH Series - A Reliable and Efficient Heart
At the heart of the compressor is an innovative single screw compression element, featuring a single main rotor with 6 flutes meshing with a pair of 11 tooth gate rotors, that is proven in thousands of installations. 

Compression takes place in two chambers above and below the main rotor, as a result compression loads are balanced and bearing loads are significantly reduced. The low bearing loads extend compression element life and significantly reduce lifetime operating costs.

Water injected into the compression element provides lubrication, sealing and cooling. The superior cooling properties of water allows the compressor to operate at a low temperature providing near isothermal compression, low power consumption and class leading efficiency levels. A reverse osmosis membrane cartridge filters the injection water entering the compressor; as a result the water is always maintained at a high purity level.

A constant supply of oil-free compressed air with a barely detectable max. residual oil content of 0.003 milligram per cubic metre - this is what the new catalyst system from compressed air specialist BEKO Technologies is able to deliver.

With this high level of efficiency, the BEKOKAT devices can sail past the stringent oil content stipulations of DIN EN8573-1/ ISO 8573-1, class 1. At the same time, the new catalytic principle breaks down the technical and economic barriers that are usually intrinsic to conventional compressed air treatment, especially when concerned with applications with extremely high quality requirements.

Atlas Copco Airpower celebrates 50 years of success

Atlas Copco 2006-10-24

Stockholm, Sweden, October 24, 2006: This year marks 50 years since Atlas Copco made a major expansion of its compressor business and accelerated its journey towards worldwide leadership in compressed air. It is also 50 years since Atlas Copco took its current name.

In 1956, Atlas Diesel acquired compressor specialist, Arpic Engineering SA, Antwerp, Belgium. The same year, Atlas Diesel took its present-day name, Atlas Copco, an abbreviation of Compagnie Pneumatique Commerciale, thereby highlighting the company
