Atlas Copco Rental Middle East fleet possesses state-of-the-art material to design custom-made solutions that will meet customer needs, through a wide range of specialised solutions in class zero compressed oil-free air
, high pressure compressed air, offshore equipment, compressed air treatment solutions and on-site nitrogen and power generation.
At the AB Series launch, Dr Varadaraj said: "With increasing air pollution concerns and stringent environmental regulations, oil-free air
is a top priority.
Oil in Compressed Air will lead to quality problems and steps must be taken in the selection of air compressors as well as maintenance of filtration equipment for delivery of 100% oil-free air
. Addition of these instruments to air transmission lines can lead to control over air quality.
Being small and mobile, it solves the problem of getting oil-free air
where and when it is needed.
In 2016, Atlas Copco Rental launched the PTS 800, a portable, diesel-driven 100% oil-free air
compressor to complete its range of the oil-free electrical and diesel-driven air compressors at the lower end.
By 2020, the market size by value of oil-free air
compressors would be at par with oil lubricated air compressors market.
Another advantage of Atlas Copco's oil-free air
compressors is that they do not require cooling water.
compressors that meet ISO 85731 Class 0 standards for air quality are the best choice for food manufacturers producing goods that come into direct contact with compressed air.
By installing the compressors Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall benefited from being provided with two completely fit for purpose machines, incorporating all the drying and filtration equipment needed to provide the required level of oil-free air
. As Ben Thomson, Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall tunneling engineer explains: "We felt it was the right decision to go with Atlas Copco who provided us with two new compressors and the reassurance of continuous, reliable performance which is vital to our below-ground operations.
In total, our compressors generated more than 300 million m[sup.3] of dry, 100 per cent oil-free air
for the project, making it one of the biggest compressor rental projects ever.
Providing a greener method for treating compressed air, a new line of heat of compression (HOC) dryers turn wasted heat into useful energy, resulting in clean, dry, oil-free air
at less cost than desiccant dryers.
The new factory and the upgrade of existing facilities will allow for increased production of portable compressors, industrial and oil-free air
compressors as well as compressor elements.
