2011-02-28

Antwerp, Belgium, February 28, 2011: Atlas Copco’s Oil-free Air Division introduces the ZB 5-120 VSD. This innovative 100% oil-free range of centrifugal air blowers with Variable Speed Drive is the manufacturers’ latest addition. At the heart of the new ZB range is a state-of-the-art air foil bearing technology that ensures high energy efficiency.

The ZB range delivers 100 % oil-free air according to ISO standard 8573-1 and eliminates any risk of oil-contamination in the aeration system. The distinctive air foil bearings allow friction-free flotation of the high speed rotor. Coupled with the leading Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology, the highest air volume at the lowest energy consumption is assured.

Typically, the aeration system in a biological wastewater treatment plant accounts for up to 70 percent of the total energy usage. To significantly lower operational costs in these continuously operating plants, the new ZB range incorporates the latest technologies in the most efficient and durable design.
 
Chris Lybaert, President of Atlas Copco’s Oil-free Air Division, says:
 
“Not only does this range address the specific needs for wastewater treatment plants, it also proves our determination to innovate and develop sustainable products that truly add value for our customers.”
