The generation of compressed air is always connected with the formation of condensate. In most cases, this condensate contains oil, is contaminated with dirt particles and spreads out in the entire compressed-air system. A system problem which can result in damage and additional costs. The BEKOMAT drains condensate in the compressed-air system in an electronically level-controlled manner. More than 3,000,000 installations worldwide make it the industrial standard for reliable and cost-effective condensate drainage.
A more economic solution for an environmentally sound condensate management is the decentralised oil-water separation directly at the source. Condensate which was processed with ÖWAMAT can be directly introduced as cleaned water into the sewerage system. The devices have a national technical approval and do not require a permit according to the law on water.
In addition, the ÖWAMAT oil-water separators do not create any energy costs, boast enormous filter service lives and can be retrofitted into older systems without difficulty.
BEKOSPLIT splitting plants clean emulsified condensates which occur as a result of unfavourable initial conditions or of certain lubricant/compressor combinations. In addition to compressed-air condensate, other oil-containing industrial wastewaters can also be processed. Water-insoluble organic substances and a large variety of solid contaminations are removed from the water. Any heavy metals, dirt and paint particles contained in the water are reliably adsorbed
The energy costs of a compressed-air system are decisively influenced by the pressure drop occurring during compressed-air filtration. To maintain the required operating pressure, this pressure drop needs to be compensated by correspondingly higher compressor performance.
The consequence: increased energy demand, premature wear of the compressor ... and therefore higher costs. The better solution: CLEARPOINT compressed-air filters by BEKO TECHNOLOGIES.
The key to the successful optimisation of compressed-air systems is data. The METPOINT® range of measurement equipment with sensor technology and monitoring provides the data base for the evaluation and assurance of the compressed-air quality and for the identification of hidden cost drivers. Our measurement equipment can also be employed for the extension of plants and for the early elimination of malfunctions.
With our sensor technology, you can capture residual oil content, residual humidity, volume flow and pressure – constantly, faultlessly and with exemplary precision.
Our Monitoring and Data Logging makes all the relevant data accessible to you and your employees at a glance, ensuring the safety of your processes and the quality of your products. In this way you can take your energy management and quality control requirements to the next level of success.
In addition to filtration, compressed-air drying contributes significantly to an increase in process reliability. Humidity in compressed-air systems causes corrosion, and promotes the growth of micro-organisms. In individual cases, condensate emerges at the point of use - an ongoing danger for the operational flow, for example because of failing pneumatic controls, increased wear and tear or because of other disturbances in the production process.
With considerably enhanced process reliability, the DRYPOINT dryer technology offers decisive advantages for every field of application. The BEKO TECHNOLOGIES portfolio comprises application-optimised refrigeration, adsorption and membrane dryers for volumes up to 1,500 m³/h. This range of dryers is completed by heat-regenerated EVERDRY adsorption dryers which are designed for large volume flows up to 20,000 m³/h.
