As one of the world’s oldest compressed air manufacturers, we’ve learned a thing or two about sustainability and how our company can support businesses to reduce their carbon emissions through the actions we take and the products we make.
As we proudly received our 25-year membership award from The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) at this year’s Air-Tech exhibition, we were also there to participate in the launch of the 10% Taskforce.
This is an initiative by BCAS for UK businesses to take simple steps to cut compressed air energy usage by 10%, with the potential to save a combined £147.5 million in wasted electricity costs.
BCAS’s new 10% Taskforce is designed to help businesses to save money and make a positive difference to the environment while encouraging everyone in the industry to get involved.
How can using BOGE compressed air systems help?
Our ranges of highly efficient machines support this initiative and our latest is truly outstanding which will make a huge difference to the bottom line. Our newest refrigerant dryers, the BOGE’s DS-2 series, are even more environmentally friendly than their predecessors. With refrigerant R 513 A as standard, they have much lower global warming potential than the refrigerants previously used.
But it is not just the remarkably low CO2 footprint that gives the new refrigerant dryers the edge; they also offer economic advantages. The smart control perfectly adjusts to the actual demand and reduces power consumption at a constant pressure dew point. Other components also ensure efficient operation.
Whether screw compressors, piston compressors, scroll compressors or turbo compressors, complete systems, or individual devices, BOGE Compressors meets the most diverse requirements and highest standards, with precision and quality always at the forefront.
At BOGE, we are aware of the current environmental challenges and we are therefore committed to making environmentally-friendly products. We have converted our DS-2 refrigerant dryer in the lower power range to refrigerant R 513A. This has a much lower global warming potential than the refrigerant previously used but does not compromise on performance in any way. The result: an extremely energy-efficient dryer series with the lowest CO2 footprint on the market.
Outstanding performance at high delivery rates
All refrigerant dryers in the BOGE DS series come with energy-saving regulation as standard. Thanks to our low differential pressure, the upstream compressor can have a lower positive pressure – another way of saving energy. The intelligent 4.3” touchscreen control of the DS series ultimately guarantees truly cost-effective compressed air drying. Plus, all models of the DS series attain pressure dew points of up to 3°C and still function without restrictions even at ambient temperatures of up to 50°C.
Highly effective components
The DS-2 dryers are designed for efficient drying: the heat exchanger has minimal pressure losses; the condensate drain with electronic level control drains off all condensate without any losses and the scroll refrigerant compressor uses up to 20% less energy compared to similar systems.
Energy saving controls as standard
If the dryer is run at partial load or in good environmental conditions, the intelligent control system automatically switches off the refrigerant compressor. The incoming compressed air is then cooled by the reserves in the heat exchanger, considerably reducing the energy input.
All DS-2 dryers are fitted with a digital control as standard, which has a potential-free alarm contact and a ModBus RTU interface. The control enables visual monitoring of the dew point and display of the alarm messages. In addition, the control also takes over the energy saving control and informs, among other things, about the percentage energy saving.
Towards a sustainable future
All models use the environmentally friendly and future-proof R-513A refrigerant as standard. With a low GWP (Global Warming Potential), it fulfils the requirements of f-gas regulation EU 517:2014 and ensures optimum service reliability.
DS-2 models are the best choice for protecting your investment, the climate, and the environment.
