BOGE C-2 Series of Oil-Lubricated Screw Air Compressors

BOGE Kompressoren is developing a new, oil-lubricated screw air compressor in the performance class of up to 22 kW. The C 22-2 LFR air compressor will be available with and without a receiver as well as with the option of an attached compressed air dryer. Further development will focus on easy maintenance, noise reduction and efficiency across the entire C series. One of these developments is a new, optimized airend for the 7.5 to 11 kW range. The market launch of the new C-2 series should be completed in 2018.

“The performance segment from 2.2 to 22 kW accounts for approximately 2/3 of the market volume worldwide,” said Markus Henkel, Product-Market Manager at BOGE. “With the C-2 series, we continue to develop our well-established C series, taking into account customer and distributor requests.” Machines on receivers and those with dryers have a large share in this performance segment. Thus, in its redesigned version of the series of air compressors up to 22 kW, the Bielefeld-based family enterprise gives highest priority to the technological development of the C-2 machines. These are suitable for receiver and floor assembly and will be available with an optional dryer. Easy setup of a complete compressed air station will be possible in the smallest of spaces. The control system can be mounted variably, at the top or at the front for floor or receiver installation, respectively.

In the frequency-controlled C-2 screw air compressors, BOGE is replacing the belt drive with a direct drive in order to improve system features and meet increasing efficiency standards. For further energy savings, the company also offers an optional frequency-controlled fan and IE4 motors. As a result, sound level and power consumption are reduced. Thanks to a new component arrangement, annual maintenance can be conducted easily from one side of the machine. Additionally, a variable cooling air outlet enables flexible connection to the exhaust air duct for use of discharged heat.

BOGE is devoting special attention to its performance range of 7.5 to 11 kW. As a result, it has specially created a new airend satisfying the highest efficiency requirements, providing a respectable free air delivery-efficiency ratio. Further goals are improved performance, quiet running, and reduced power consumption. This airend, like many other C-2 models, will also be eligible for BAFA incentives.
