04/2010 - BOGE meets API standard

BOGE has just announced that their established range of oil free screw compressors now meets the API 619:2004 standard.

The BOGE SO series has long since been a popular choice for those sensitive applications where absolutely oil free compressor air is demanded such as in the chemical and pharmaceutical, food and drinks and semiconductor industries.
The petrochemical and gas industries can now also be assured that the BOGE API-SO series not only provides highly efficient and reliable oil free compressed air, but also meet the API 619:2004 standard.

The API-SO series from BOGE incorporates the same sophisticated design features of the standard SO series which ensure clean and efficient compressed air.

A two-stage BOGE airend is used which ensures very low specific power consumption. The shafts are sealed by a combination of special sealing rings and a two-stage labyrinth vented to atmosphere leading to optimum operational reliability.

Like all of the BOGE oil-free screw compressors, the API-SO series is divided into three clearly divided sections. The component parts are intelligently positioned along the cooling air flow for increased service life and prompt availability of compressed air. Control electronics, electrical components and motor are located in the coolest part of the machine.

Both airend stages are easily accessible. Because a separate air fan is fitted as standard an optional cowl cooler can be mounted directly on the compressor. As the discharge air is cooled, no additional discharge ducting is required which means the compressor can be installed according to individual requirements.

The API-SO series models are available either air- or water- cooled. There are 13 models and 31 variants available in the BOGE API-SO range of oil free direct driven screw compressors.
The API-SO series is available in the standard pressure of 8 and 10 bar. Output capacities range from 5.25 - 51.4 m3/min, motor power 45 kW to 355 kW.
