Screw Compressor Offers Quiet, Efficient Operation

At 69 dBA, the new S-4 screw compressor from BOGE KOMPRESSOREN is suitable for environments sensitive to noise.

With the redesigned S-4, BOGE KOMPRESSOREN offers a compressed air system that is efficient and whisper-quiet at 69 dBA. This makes it suitable for environments that are sensitive to noise. The enclosed direct drive provides for low-maintenance continuous operation, even with high dust volumes. The control system, focus control 2.0, supports interconnected operation with up to four units without the use of an additional higher-level control.

The S-4 owes its gain in efficiency to effilence IntegrateDrive, BOGE's first airend to feature integrated gears. "The large-scale design of the compressor provides high delivery rates with low power consumption. The level of energy consumed by the S-4 compressors thus falls by as much as 8%," said a company spokesperson. The integrated gears are hermetically enclosed. The drive has optimum protection from high levels of dust in the ambient air. The result is a low-maintenance, long service life of over 35,000 operating hours.

At 69 dBA, the new generation is 7 dBA quieter than the previous model. To achieve this, BOGE isolated the oil separator from the base frame and the sound hood to prevent the transmission of any vibrations. "To accomplish isolation, BOGE come up with a first: designing a vertical oil separator with a new pre-separation system," said the spokesperson. "Other benefits include a low residual oil content in the compressed air, minimal pressure losses and a long service life for the separating element. Because the machine is so quiet, it can also be used in environments that are sensitive to noise, e.g., next to a workstation. No additional sound insulation is required for the structure."

The focus control 2.0 control system is designed to anticipate operating states and automatically adjusts to the temperatures and pressure levels that occur. "Entirely in line with Industry 4.0, the new BOGE system makes it possible to simultaneously monitor the operating states and maintenance intervals of up to four compressors," said the spokesperson. "This not only significantly extends service life, but also allows the user to take full advantage of the potential offered by the system. Due to these attributes, S-4 screw compressors are suitable for three-shift operation. When maintenance is required, there is easy access to components via the removable service doors on two sides of the screw compressor."
