Screw compressor energy efficient

The new oil-injection cooled screw compressor C 16 F (D) from sets new standards in the 11 kW performance class.

Its excellent specific characteristics predestine the Boge C 16 F (D) compressors for achieving high energy savings. With its broad control range, it caters for widely fluctuating compressed air demand.

A silenced intake filter and sturdy grey cast iron housing afford extremely quiet operation even when working at full capacity – enabling it to operate right at the workstation. The optionally available focus control 2.0 intelligent compressor control can be used with up to four compressors and lends itself to Industry 4.0 applications.

It provides the highest free air delivery in the 11 kW compressor segment – despite its extremely low speed level. This is the result of using the Boge compact compressor aired from the effilence family which trumps with outstandingly low specific power consumption due to its high-efficiency IE3 motor.

With this minimal power consumption rating and the extremely low flow losses, these belt-driven BOGE C 16 F (D) compressors achieve record energy efficiency. Their sound pressure levels also get top ratings – the C 16 F (D) is one of the quietest compressors in its class.

The advantages of integrated frequency control are particularly apparent when compressed air demand fluctuates: The frequency converter provides continuous free air delivery in the roughly 25 – 100% control range. The free air delivery is constantly matched to the operating conditions.

If the demand for compressed air drops off, compressor energy use also falls. Idling times are virtually eliminated in this way. Customers who use C 16 F (D) screw compressors achieve energy savings of up to 30 percent as a result.

The design of the C series is both intelligent and simple. All maintenance-relevant parts are arranged for easy reach to minimise waiting times. Equipping these compressors with additional options such as a refrigerant dryer or the focus control 2.0 intelligent compressor control makes them into flexible all-rounders.

It is not without reason that customers can choose between different versions:

Models in the C 16 F (D) series are available with a maximum pressure of 8, 10 and 13 bar and free air delivery from 0.46 to a maximum of 1.99 m3 per minute.

The C 16 F (D) can be optionally fitted with the modular focus control 2.0 control unit, making it ideal for modern integrated production in the age of Industry 4.0. This compressor control allows up to four compressors to be used in combination. Information can be read off comfortably on the high-resolution colour display unit, while the capacitive touchscreen keys make for exceptionally easy use. An RFID interface enables authorised users to log on to the device touch-free.

Whether to seek the system status, network pressure, system pressure, utilisation capacity, load operation, idling or the final compression temperature – users can quickly and easily change between screens on the touchpad thanks to the clear structure of the display unit, featuring symbols for the various compressors and devices.
