Atlas Copco Offers 'net zero energy consumption' compressors
September 4, 2009

Atlas Copco’s Oil-free Air division has announced that the company’s ZR series of water-cooled oil-free air compressors with built-in energy recovery systems is the first in the world to be certified for ‘net zero energy consumption’ at specific design conditions by the German Technical Monitoring Association. According to company sources, testing has proven that 100% of the electrical power input could be recovered in the form of hot water. The company says that with these ‘Carbon Zero’ compressors, industries using a great deal of hot water and steam such as food and beverage, dairies, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and petrochemicals, power plants, clean rooms and textiles can dramatically cut down on their energy bill.
