Save Money, Time And The Planet With Oil-Free Air Compressors
In the manufacturing world, you are only as good as your machines. Reliable, durable, efficient equipment generates profits, while outdated, high-maintenance, unreliable equipment generates more problems. Many companies are becoming more cautious with their carbon footprint and are changing their industrial compressors to energy-efficient oil-free air compressors. Sullair, part of the Fusion for Industry from Hitachi, thoroughly understands what it means to provide sustainable equipment to minimize the replacement process and maximize the lifespan.
Why Oil-Free Air Compressors Are Better
Sullair has developed a DSP series certified Class 0 rotary screw air compressor built to withstand common issues that would otherwise lead to a breakdown, repair or, worst case, replacement.
The revolutionary air compressor, used in industries ranging from pharmaceutical to life sciences, food and beverage, electronics, automotive, and packaging consists of components that were mindfully built to minimize maintenance. A two-stage air end features patented polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-free coating rotors designed to increase lubricity while improving heat resistance. It produces air at maximum capacity, which garners greater efficiency and lower operating costs.
Why Oil-Free Air Compressors Last Longer
This attention to quality and reliability is evident in every component of Sullair products.
Coated to Protect: Sullair oil-free rotary screw air compressors have a rotor coating that is engineered to protect the screw against its two biggest enemies: heat and humidity.
The rotor coating helps reduce the gap between rotors, protecting the rotors against high temperatures and corrosion, reducing friction of the air passing through the rotors during the compression process, and keeping energy consumption at a lower level.
Spiral Valve Technology: Sullair energy-efficiency goes beyond the rotor coating. Its Electronic Spiral Valve Technology offers energy-efficiency by reducing the amount of air compressed based on the change in compressor demand.
This technological advancement can save up to 30% in energy costs compared with other compressors. Additional revolutionary technology includes bypass ports that progressively open or close automatically under partial load, which provides superior efficiency and reduces power consumption. Sullair can achieve up to 60% turndown capability.
What to consider when determining if oil-free air compressors will meet your needs
The first thing to consider is if there is contact with the finished product. Products like food, beverage, microprocessors or any oil residue can foul the product and cause quality issues. Hitachi and Sullair, combined, have a long history of oil-free air compressors. No matter the need, Hitachi’s Fusion for Industry family has an air compressor solution for your manufacturing needs.
With over 55 years of experience, and now under the Hitachi family, Sullair holds to its promise of providing reliable equipment that is built to stand the test of time.
If you’re in the market for a true partner who is a leader in the industry, look no further than Sullair and their reliable and sustainable air compressor solutions.
