Globally growing environmental awareness has instigated rise in strict regulation to improve air quality. This has increased the demand for air compressors in energy, oil & gas, food & beverage, and manufacturing application is predicted to drive oil free air compressors market over the coming years.
Swedish industrial company, Atlas Copco’s ZE & ZA (VSD) low pressure oil-free screw compressors is built for dusty and humid settings, requiring high- quality air source. It was developed to help optimize productions in floating cells, glass blowing, pneumatic conveying, and fermentation application. The ZE & ZA is designed to save energy costs can account to for nearly 40% of the plant’s total electricity costs.
The ZE & ZA has a minimized maintenance cost and downtime and costs owing to its innovative single stage screw compressor technology. It is built with a motor and compression element with Teflon rotor coating along with cooling jackets providing the highest air volume at the minimal energy consumption. The Teflon coating improves the efficiency, increases the longevity of life, and protects it against corrosion. High temperature resistance allows operating pressures reaching up to 58psig or 4 bar(e). The carbon steel rotors are coordinated with nickel alloyed gears.
Its high precision drive system minimizes noise, vibration, and transmission loss. The integrated variable speed drive (VSD) technology gives nearly 35% of extra energy conservation by automatically tuning the compressor flow to required amount. The screw compression has cooling jackets to improve efficiency and reliability to ensure rotor clearance. The shafts sealing eliminate the risk of leakage while reducing wear and tear and guaranteeing 100% oil free air.
The global oil free air compressor market can reach nearly USD 15.2 billion by 2025; according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Adoption of these compressors in the food & beverage applications, owing to the strict and mandatory health & safety requirements can propel market growth.
Atlas Copco, General Electric and Bauer Group, Gardner Denver, and Ingersoll Rand PLC are the key players of the oil free air compressor market. Players focus on product development, mergers & acquisitions, and technological advancements to impel market growth.
