Direct Air place record order for Ultima Compressors
This week Direct Air’s Managing Director, Allan Dolby, has placed an order with Andrew Power, Country Manager at Gardner Denver, for 8 off Ultima Oil Free Compressors.
This order is for a prestigious turnkey project that Direct Air will be undertaking using all the expertise of our inhouse Projects Department.
This also signals Gardner Denver’s largest ever order for Ultima compressors and Direct Air continue to be proud distributors of the CompAir, Champion and Hydrovane technology.
Ultima, a revolutionary new, water-cooled oil-free compressor, offering up to 12 per cent improved energy efficiency compared to a conventional two-stage machine with a 37 per cent smaller footprint.
Ultima is available in models from 75 kW to 160 kW and is designed for best in class performance, for applications that demand the highest levels of air quality and purity.
Unlike standard oil-free compressors, which have a single motor and mechanical gearbox design to drive the low- and high-pressure air ends, Ultima uses the U-Drive concept – two, high-efficiency, permanent magnet motors which replace the gearbox and single motor. These variable-speed motors, powered by an inverter, can achieve speeds of up to 22,000 rpm and deliver efficiencies greater than IE4.
