‘Cost effective’ Class O compressed air

Boge has launched the BC series converters that cost effectively assists the end user in efficiently producing absolutely oil free compressed air to Class 0 (ISO 8573-0) quality

In industries such as; the PET sector, the food and drinks sector and the pharmaceutical and chemical sector, generating absolutely oil free compressed air is paramount. The ideal way to generate oil free compressed air is to use an oil free compressor.

However, this can be an expensive option and quite often only feasible for large compressed air users. Boge has recently launched the BC series converters which provide the ideal solution for efficiently and cost effectively generating absolutely oil free compressed air!

The Boge BC Converter is installed directly downstream from the compressor and has been designed to make downstream oil penetration impossible. Due to the innovative catalyst system, the Boge Converter only produces ultra clean condensate and absolutely oil free compressed air according to quality Class 0 (ISO 8573-0).

The Boge Converter catalyst system ensures the long hydrocarbon chains of the residual oil contained in the compressed air are split up into carbon dioxide and water – substances which are naturally present in the atmosphere.

The catalyst material is stored as granulated and compact bulk material in a receiver and compressed air circulates around it. Simultaneously, both oil droplets and oil vapours are cracked which means that both compressed air and any resultant condensate are absolutely oil free.

The advantage for the end user is a cost effective solution to generating oil free compressed air with both purchase and operating costs lower in comparison to running an oil free compressor with a traditional treatment system.

The Boge BC converters are very energy efficient operating with an extremely low energy consumption level between 0.01 to 0.005 kWh/Nm3. Additionally with no filter pressure loss either, operating pressure can be optimised.

With a service life of between up to 20,000 operating hours, maintenance requirements are kept to an absolute minimum. Additionally, because the converter does not require filtration, subsequent element changes are eliminated.

The Boge BC Converters are available in 13 models.
