Gardner Denver unveils latest Robuschi compressor for wastewater treatment industry

Posted: Wednesday 3rd August 2016

Gardner Denver has unveiled the latest technological update to the Robuschi compressor range, specifically developed for wastewater treatment plants requiring a low-pressure solution.

With energy consumption accounting for more than 50 per cent of annual costs for wastewater treatment plants, the new ROBOX Screw low-pressure unit offers enhanced efficiency due to its internal RSW compressor. The rotors optimise the capacity-pressure ratio the unit is capable of delivering, due to its maximum internal compression rate and the reduced number of revolutions required.

Providing pressure up to 1 bar and capacity up to 10,500 m3/h, the unit's simple design means all routine maintenance can be carried out from the front of the compressor, ensuring operators can check oil levels, replace drive belts and oil and air filters, and adjust oil pressure quickly and conveniently.

Gareth Topping, Vacuum & Blowers Sales Manager at Gardner Denver, explains: "The efficient ROBOX Screw low-pressure compressor reduces energy consumption by between 15 to 30 per cent when compared with competing technologies. Businesses can also take advantage of a customised ROBOX Screw solution if needed, in order to meet individual requirements.

"With a more simple and compact design than many of the lobe blower units typically used in wastewater plants and an average payback period of two years - depending on the application and operating conditions - many plants could realise a range of efficiency and cost-saving benefits from investing in this latest technology."
