When developing systems, BOGE places a particular emphasis on efficiency. Ultimately, it’s the amount of energy consumed by a compressed air system that is the pivotal factor. With specially selected components, frequency-controlled machines, master controls and heat recovery solutions, our compressed air systems consistently achieve optimal efficiency values.
Optimal Choice of Compressors
Efficient compressed air is our aim from the outset – and we achieve this by ensuring that all components of a compressed air system are optimally adapted to their respective usage. First, we analyse your requirements for free air delivery and compressed air quality. In the subsequent planning stage, we integrate several more factors: ambient and intake conditions, cooling water quality, company standards, legal requirements and other specifications.
We compare different system concepts before we start building. To do this, our engineers make use of both CAD systems and a special stimulation tool, the latter of which can be used to calculate the efficiency of a planned system under real conditions. This concrete data enables us to determine the most economical option for your needs.
Frequency control ensures that pressure in compressors remains constant. This allows the compressed air production process to adapt optimally to the compressed air consumption of your systems.
Master controls enable all connected compressors and components to be coordinated from a single source. One of the most innovative and efficient master control tools on the market is the BOGE airtelligence provis 2.0, which allows for the effortless connection and operation of up to 16 fixed or frequency-controlled compressors.
We develop customised heat recovery solutions for both oil-lubricated and oil-free compressors. Our solutions boast maximum levels of cost efficiency and are always optimally adapted to your individual requirements, allowing you to recover the maximum amount of heat possible. They have previously been used to achieve temperature increases from 70 °C to 95 °C.
You run a 160kW compressor with an average capacity utilisation of 70 per cent. Our solution enables you to recover 90 per cent of the energy input, which means the usable energy is 160kW x 70 % x 90% = 100 kW.
Your total annual saving can be up to 65,000 euros.
