A high-pressure “boost” of oil-free compressed air



Rand-Air recently took delivery of an Atlas Copco DXT85VSD electrically-driven, oil-free air/nitrogen booster complete with high-pressure hoses. Coupled with their oil-free compressor and dryer, the company can now offer a total solution for 42 bar high-pressure, oil-free compressed air. The 100 kW DXT has a high outlet pressure range of 25 to 42 bars at volumes of 700 cubic feet a minute (cfm): which makes it eminently suitable for a range of specialised industrial applications, from food and beverage packaging. However, enquiries for high-pressure oil-free compressed air from the local soft drink manufacturing and bottling industry highlighted the suitability of the Atlas Copco DXT compressor. Diesel-driven oil-injected boosters were not suitable for this application as there was a certain amount of oil residue in the compressed air they supplied. Also, diesel-driven oil-injected boosters were not designed to provide a 24/7 compressed air supply to manufacturing facilities.
