NEW MAIN AIR COMPRESSORS FROM DÜRR TECHNIKOil-free compressed air – from now on everything from one source
According to the German Federal Statistical Office, in 2015 the citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany used local rail transport more than 6 billion times and long-distance rail about 131 million times. Reliability has the highest priority. Oil-free auxiliary air compressors from Dürr Technik ensure the safe operation of the railway vehicles. In this sector the manufacturer can look back on 25 years' experience and has been able to secure a worldwide leading position. The company has now extended its range to include products of the French company ATS Environnement. Thus, Dürr Technik now offers not only auxiliary air compressors but also main air compressors –all from one source. The flow volume now reaches up to 1000 l/min at a pressure of 9 bar.
In the main air sector, ATS offers more than 15 years' experience and, among other things, manufactured the first oil-free compressed air unit for high speed trains. Now Dürr Technik has bundled this expertise in with its own know-how. The asset purchase is a further milestone on the company's road to success after the takeover of Estan, a manufacturer of drive motors for high quality DC motors, in 2014.
The RC compressor can be connected to all conventional motors for direct drive and belt drive. Therefore this compressor is very well suited for retrofitting. Since 2006 the RC model has been certified by SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français) – the state-owned enterprise for passenger transport in France. The MC product range is characterised by handy compactness and is ideal for new projects. Due to their sound-proofed housing these models are particularly low-noise and are additionally protected against dust and stone chipping.
The compressors are relatively low maintenance as they do not need any oil lubrication. High quality materials ensure an above-average service life of the components. Comprehensive tests under extreme conditions guarantee the high quality standards. The motor concepts are specifically geared to railway traffic. A further advantage is the silent and low-vibration operation. The compressors are also very reliable in continuous operation.
Dürr auxiliary air compressors with 12 V DC up to 110 V DC and a flow volume of 30 to 160 l/min control individual functions, such as the lifting of pantographs, the signal horn, the control of the toilet door, wheel flange lubrication and sanding systems. With these oil-free main air compressors the main air system of a train can now also be serviced, which in turn services such things as the brakes, the sanding, the signal horn, the windscreen washer system, the doors, the toilets and the driver’s seat.
Altogether, due to its extended range of compressors, Dürr Technik now offers a wide range of compressed air solutions for railway traffic – with tailor-made systems which meet the individual demands of the customers.
