Ultima is a ground-breaking oil-free PureAir compressor. The unique design of this all new compressor range from Gardner Denver, utilises a low pressure and high pressure dry screw airend - each airend is individually driven by a variable speed, permanent magnet synchronous motor, offering exceptional levels of efficiency versus traditional oil-free technology.
The Ultima compressors are 100% oil and silicone-free and meet ISO 8573-1 Class Zero (2010), making them the ideal choice fro stringent oil-free applications within food and beverage, pharmaceutical, electronic and the automotive industries.
Ultima is upgradable
There are 5 models in the range from 75 to 160kW, & any model can easily be upgraded to a higher output model in the range, so for example a 75kW model can easily be upgraded to a 110kW version within 1 hour. Should you require more capacity, Ultima can grow as your business grows.
Oil-free 2 stage compressor design hasn't changed for many years, the high speeds needed in the airends (up to 20,000 rpm) to create the required flows & pressures demanded by industry have traditionally need a large gearbox driving both the low & high pressure stages.
The new GD ultima has completely rewritten this process, with our own airend, our own motor & our own drive system, where crucially the 2 airends are independently driven with their own dedicated motor. This alleviates the need for a gear box & the associated losses in efficiency, which come from the frictional heat losses in a conventional gearbox.
What this means is that we can maximise the efficiency of the airends at the output that the customer requires, giving us the most energy efficient oil-free machine on the market today.Learn More
