Atlas Copco North America, Parsippany, N.J., launched an energy-efficient centrifugal compressor range that saves up to 7% on specific energy at full load and up to another 9% at part load.
Delivered as a plug-and-run package, the ZH 355+ - 900+ oil-free centrifugal compressor range employs advanced aerodynamics to reduce energy consumption in the core. Coupled with this, all the components of the package are designed based on Computational Flow Dynamic (CFD) analysis to drastically reduce pressure drops in the package.
To ensure continuous production, ZH centrifugal compressors employ high-end features to ensure maximum uptime. Milled impellers and servo-controlled inlet guide vanes (IGV) contribute to a trouble-free performance.
Plus, a fail-safe and unique sealing system prevents the possibility of contamination of the air with oil, without the need of any external buffer air. Oil fumes from the gear box are captured by a motorized demister, thus eliminating the risk of ingestion of oil fumes along with the intake air.
