Atlas Copco to supply 200 oil-free scroll compressors to Siemens and the Austrian Federal Railways
Wilrijk, Belgium, January 2014. Atlas Copco will supply 200 oil-free scroll compressors SFR 5 to Siemens Germany for its end customer ÖBB, the Austrian Federal Railways. The compressors will provide oil-free air for the brake system, active tilting suspension and other auxiliary systems in the Siemens Desiro ML type train series.
A completely customized solution
Atlas Copco’s Railway Competence Center developed a completely customized oil-free compressed air solution with a fully integrated maintenance-free membrane dryer and proven railway core components. Atlas Copco chosed a 100% oil-free 5.5 kW SFR 5 scroll compressor directly driven by a 400VAC 50 Hz electric motor. The SFR 5 is a simple, highly reliable compressor package design, providing 400 l/min at 10 bar after the dryer. It incorporates a minimum of moving parts; a shaft-driven cooling fan; corrosion-resistant materials and sturdy construction to withstand external vibrations, shock loads and projectiles. The SFR 5 performs in temperatures from -25°C to +50°C, optional up to +75°C, and is designed to withstand extreme weather conditions.
The air treatment is carried out by a fully integrated water separator, fine pre-filter and a maintenance-free membrane dryer that supplies clean, dry, oil-free compressed air with a quality class of at least 2.2.0 acc. to ISO 8573-1.
