Belliss & Morcom V18 Air Compressor
Industry spends more money on the energy to power its compressed air systems, than on any other part of the manufacturing and process applications. 10% of all electricity used in industry is used to power compressed air systems.
With energy use accounting for roughly 80% of the total cost over the life of the compressor, creating energy efficient solutions for industrial use is a priority at Belliss & Morcom.
Reciprocating air compressors offer up to 10% lower energy consumption than a comparable screw compressor through lower specific power requirements and more efficient load and unload.
Running a 250kW compressor for 8,000 hours per year will cost £200,000 (assuming 0.1 £/kWhr), reducing compressor power by only 1% will save £2,000. This explains the money spent in R&D across industry looking for marginal efficiency gains. However, by moving to a double acting reciprocating piston design the Belliss and Morcom range of oil free compressors achieves a step change of up to 10% over typical industrial compressors, increasing your annual saving up to £20,000.
Delivering superior energy efficiency, increased reliability, and a lifespan of up to 25 years without major overhaul, Belliss & Morcom compressors offer minimum total cost of ownership.
All wearing parts are designed for ease of maintenance, and there is no air end to replace. Build in regular and scheduled maintenance for ease of budgeting, on compressors developed with wear reduction and ease of access in mind, and you have an installation that provides reduced downtime over the life of the compressor. Our high pressure compressors are designed to operate for 8,000 hours between service which delivers total peace of mind.
Belliss & Morcom high pressure compressors for industrial applications – long lasting and trusted technology delivering the ultimate energy efficiencies and significantly lower total cost of ownership. Why wouldn’t you?
