Lupamat unveiled a CO2 compressor. First produced in Turkey using CO2 gas, this three-stage slide bearing, high pressure (20 bar), V type and oil-free compressor has a capacity of 1000 m3/h, 200 kW engine power and is water cooled.
The system is designed to operate as a closed cycle with no CO2 gas output to the atmosphere. Since CO2gas is corrosive, the valves, elbows, sleeves, flanges, bumps, heat exchanger and all other parts are made of stainless steel. All of the critical materials used are stainless steel as well and the compressor is long lasting. The CO2 compressor uses an Advanced 10” TFT LCD touch screen user panel. The CO2 gas supplied to the system under pressure is 100% oil free and is therefore suitable for use in the beverage, pharmaceutical, food and health sectors. In the CO2 compressor, carbon dioxide gas discharge is returned to the compressor suction rather than to the atmosphere, thus saving energy. Stainless steel collector tanks located at the 2nd and 3rd stage outlet provide vibration reduction to a minimum level.
