Atlas Copco has introduced the Carbon Zero range of air compressors, which have advanced heat-recovery systems that recover 100 per cent of electrical energy input in the form of hot water.

The compressors can, as a result, dramatically reduce energy costs for a range of industries.

The compressors are certified by the TUV institute as having ‘net zero energy consumption’.

The Carbon Zero innovation provides effective heat transfer, within specific design conditions, of relative humidity so that a considerable proportion of electrical power input can be recovered in the form of hot water at 90C.

This provides significant benefits for industries employing hot water or steam within process operations such as food and beverage, pulp and paper, chemicals and power plants.

By using the compressor output hot water either directly, or as pre-heated boiler feed water, the consumption of process heating fuel and its associated carbon-dioxide emissions can be dramatically reduced or, in some cases, eliminated altogether.

The renowned, independent TUV institute (German Technical Monitoring Association) earlier this year supervised tests on Atlas Copco oil-free screw compressor series ZR 55 – 750, equipped with built-in energy-recovery systems.

The tests demonstrated that under specific design conditions, 100 per cent of the electric energy consumed could be recovered for heating water.
