08/2009 - BOGE extends range of oil free piston compressors

BOGE has now extended the innovative K series oil-free piston compressor range with the addition of 15 and 40 bar option. The K series provides the smaller air user with a compact, German quality, energy and cost effective, oil-free compressor solution. The new models incorporate the same proven and state-of-the-art compressor technology utilised in developing the K series oil-free piston compressors. The cylinder is mounted horizontally, and a centrally located crankshaft operates a push rod principle, ensuring the piston remains parallel in the cylinder. This innovation vastly reduces cylinder ring wear experienced in all conventional systems.

The sophisticated K series design provides a very cost effective compressor solution for the smaller compressed air user. As an oil-free compressor, the K series reduces the downstream treatment required and all the associated costs. Service times and standard service parts required are also reduced considerably. Additionally, unlike most piston compressors the K series operates on a stop/start basis controlled by a standard BOGE electronic controller which further ensures the most efficient use of energy.
Such features allow BOGE to be able to offer the K series at an unbeatable cost effective price/performance ratio.

The K series does not use an oil-lubricated crosshead drive and so as a 100% oil-free piston compressor this range is ideally suited to industries such as the food, drink, medical and pharmaceutical sectors, where oil-free compressed air is paramount. The package, with acoustic canopy, can be receiver mounted and requires a minimal footprint underpinning its versatility in, for example, point of use applications.

The K series is available as a 10, 15 or 40 bar compressor with effective free air deliveries ranging from 244 - 648 l/min, motor range 2.2 to 5.5 kW.
