Compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology
Innovative, efficient, safe
The manufacturers of compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology think long term, recognize trends at an early stage and actively convert them into sustainable solutions. Savings achieved through efficient plants and equipment can be invested in research and development.
Improving the quality of life
Compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology provide an improved quality of life in many fields, starting with the sterile packaging of foodstuffs complying with hygiene standards, moving on to water treatment by aeration in sedimentation tanks and through to medical applications, for example in the treatment of tumours. And last but not least, innovative technologies also offer opportunities for quality improvement and increased precision in many industrial processes, e.g. laser cutting.
Increasing efficiency and decreasing emissions
Energy consumption and emissions can be reduced both in the planning and operating stages of industrial plant and equipment. The multiple possibilities for energy savings which reveal themselves here have been recognized and exploited by manufacturers of compressors, compressed air and vacuum technology – for example in the ultra-precise design of a piece of equipment for a very specific application, by leakage reduction or the recirculation of gases with the aid of efficient recovery systems.
Minimising life-cycle costs
Investment decisions are no longer based solely on acquisition costs. The examination of costs over the entire life-cycle of a machine is becoming increasingly important, focussing particularly on the expenditure due to energy consumption. Maintenance costs, the disposal and reprocessing of the materials used so that they are transformed once again into useful raw materials also form part of the equation.
