Image Antwerp, Belgium – 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 TÜV certified for ënet zero energy consumption’ at specific design conditions. It has been proven that 100 percent of the electrical power input could be recovered in the form of hot water. With these ëCarbon Zero’ compressors, industries using a great deal of hot water and steam such as food & beverage, dairies, pulp & paper, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and petrochemicals, power plants, clean rooms and textiles can dramatically cut down on their energy bill.
