Air Compressors are used in more places than people realise. They are important pieces of kit that are used by industries as diverse as the gas industry, the building industry, agriculture and tyre manufactures. Compressors are also widely used by manufacturers, usually to power tools. They are also used by major public buildings like hospitals, power plants and sewage plants.
Demand for them is high, and they are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the existing industries that they serve and open up new markets for themselves.
Marine compressors are an area in which there has been a lot of development in the past few years. They are mainly used by the oil and gas industry, but are also used by divers.
Hertz Kompressoren UK are at the forefront of the industry. They have been designing and manufacturing a range of air compressors for over 25 years, so are one of the firms that has made some of the most significant developments that have led to the modern compressors used today.
They recently released a new generation of marine compressors. They have appropriately named them the Wave Series. These compressors are designed to offer the power of traditional piston compressors, but are in fact screw compressors. They are a three-stage air-cooled engine start air compressor.
Because they were designed in collaboration with shipping companies, they have many advantages over some other marine air compressors. One of the most important innovations is the division of the pressure ratio into three stages. This means that the compressor has a low operating temperature, lower energy consumption and needs less maintenance. They can be used for 2,000 hours between services, and this is the case even when standard oil is used in them. The compressor is more compact and lighter than most previous models.
Hertz Kompressoren are mainly selling their new Wave Series air compressors to ship owners. However, they are also proving popular with all kind of power plants including nuclear, thermal and co-generation plants. They have many uses for power plants including the opening and closing of dam gates and pitch control of turbines.
