The generation of compressed air is always connected with the formation of condensate. In most cases, this condensate contains oil, is contaminated with dirt particles and spreads out in the entire compressed-air system. A system problem which can result in damage and additional costs. The BEKOMAT drains condensate in the compressed-air system in an electronically level-controlled manner. More than 3,000,000 installations worldwide make it the industrial standard for reliable and cost-effective condensate drainage. Unnecessary costs and damage during the generation of compressed air can only be avoided in an efficient way with amount-adjusted condensate drainage. Therefore, BEKOMAT condensate drains operate with a capacitive sensor. The intelligent electronics prevent compressed-air losses and minimise the energy demand. As a result, the BEKOMAT often pays itself off within half a year already, in contrast to devices with timed drain valves.
A plus for sustainability: the BEKOMAT in comparison
When a float drain is not tight, high costs are involved as a result of leakages. Timed solenoid valves also cause compressed-air losses. During the opening of the valves, compressed air - which was generated at high cost - escapes into the environment without being used. In contrast to this, the electronic level control of the BEKOMAT guarantees drainage without any loss of compressed air, meaning no energy loss. This not only saves energy and therefore costs but also CO2 emissions.
Special devices - If the condensate from the intercoolers is not reliably drained in multistage compressors, it will reach the next compressor stage. BEKOMAT LA/LP prevents damage through “drop attacks”, condensate build-up and water hammers.
Vacuum Especially employable for condensate drainage in vacuum or pressure less systems at operating pressures from 0.1 to 1.8 bar (abs.).
Hazardous areas Special units are also available for the application in hazardous areas (II 2G EEX ib IIB T4 / explosion class II B, temperature class T4) where ignition sources need to be prevented. Permissible fluids are ethane, methane, town gas, diesel fuel, ethylene, propane, fuel oil and compressor oil.
