Compressed Air Applications

Compressed air is absolutely essential for all manufacturing processes. The goal of cost efficient generation of compressed air is to have just the right amount of compressed air available at all times. Wittig's RO  rotary vane compressors with variable speed drive meet this objective. Our compressors are mainly used in low pressure applications such as mining, glass manufacturing, power plantsand  pneumatic conveying.



Glass Industry

The glass industry requires large amounts of compressed air to manufacture hollow glass. Above all, the machines and components used to do this must be reliable and of high quality. In round-the-clock operation, rotary vane compressors offer the optimal solution for this industry.

Cement Industry / Conveying / Handling

Materials handling and conveying are key concerns in the cement industry. Here it is the compressor's job to produce compressed air for conveying bulk material (cement)  from one location to another, for example from an incoming truck or rail car to some other container (such as a silo).

The key features that our customers look for are short start-up times, high operating reliability, constant minimum reserve oil levels and top energy efficiency.

To ensure that the operation of roadheaders in underground coal mining does not need to be interrupted repeatedly  so that compressed air lines can be extended as necessary, Wittig developed a compressor that is specifically approved for underground mining work. The compressor is installed directly behind the roadheader in the power train.

The design complies with ATEX zone M2.
