Condensate Drainage

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. The comprehensive product portfolio offers the optimum device for every compressor type and performance, for every system pressure, and for all operating conditions.

BEKOMAT Standard

BEKO Technologies

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.

Innovative with Service Unit

Innovative with Service Unit

The devices of this new generation are made up of only two modules: a service unit comprising the corrosion-resistant aluminium housing together with all maintenance-relevant components, and an electronic control and sensor unit which is installed only once. Both modules are coupled via a practical snap connection. This design makes it possible to replace all parts subject to wear or requiring maintenance in one go: the old service unit is simply and quickly removed and a new, works-tested unit is fitted instead. The separation and connection of the two modules requires no tools - it's all done in next to no time.

High pressure drains

High pressure drains

PN Series high pressure drains for a range of applications with hard coated drain bodies and pressure ratings up to 915 psig:

  • 12 CO PN 63 / 13 CO PN 50 / 14 CO PN 25
 

Full stainless steel bodies with the ability to handle large volume flows and pressure ratings up to 915 psig:

  • 3 E 25 / 3 E 63 / 6 E 25

True zero air loss drains for multi-stage compressors

True zero air loss drains

CV Series for use on all stages of centrifugal compressors include a specially designed control board and check-valve:

  • 13 CV / 14 CV / 16 CO CV
 

NLV series employ a no-load valve for drainage under ambient conditions along the various stages of a multi-stage machine:

  • 3 CO NLV / 6 CO NLV

BEKOMAT Special devices

BEKOMAT 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 build­up and water hammers.

Vacuum: Especially employable for condensate drainage in vacuum or pressureless 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.

Stainless-steel versions: For the drainage of particularly aggressive condensates.

Air Filtration

Better performance, long service lives, low costs: CLEARPOINT

CLEARPOINT

The CLEARPOINT® filter technology guarantees low operating costs, long service lives, outstanding process reliability and the safe filtration of aerosols, oil and dust. The comprehensive range of products covers a performance spectrum between 25 to 1,900 scfm (at 100 psi) and includes threaded and flanged filters, as well as high-pressure filters up to 7,250 psig.

Through the innovative 3E filter elements (3E = Energy Efficient Element) and a flow-optimised, corrosion-protected housing construction, CLEARPOINT® offers safe and reliable filtration and qualitatively better compressed air at significantly reduced operating costs.

High Pressure use and control

High Pressure

CLEARPOINT high pressure filters will give you a decisive added value compared with other brands in this filtration sector. Both reliability and efficiency are significantly increased. The designs are carefully tailored, down to the smallest detail, to the specific requirements of high pressure systems.

Piston compressors inevitably produce pulsations in the compressed air flow. The resulting vibrations can cause leaks in conventional filter housings. CLEARPOINT filter housings are provided with a special retention system to ensure that the unit remains leakproof. An important safety feature is the CLEARPOINT filter cap which prevents accidental opening of the housing. If the operator tries to open the housing when it is still under pressure, a clear warning signal will be heard.

CLEARPOINT High-pressure filters are available in two versions:

  • up to 725 psig
  • 1,450 to 7,250 psig

Adsorption – filtration – measurement: Three steps to outstanding compressed air quality

Adsorption – filtration

To ensure the best compressed air quality, particularly in sensitive applications where residual oil content is an imperative, CLEARPOINT® V actived carbon adsorbers provide an attractive and cost efficient solution. With CLEARPOINT® V a maximim oil content of 0.003 mg/m³ is reliably achieved even in demanding conditions, and dust filtration is standard. An indispensible process-related component for superior performance.

Air Dryers

Membrane Dryers - Drying made-to-measure

Membrane Dryers

It is particularly cost-effective to dry precisely the quantity of compressed air which the customer actually needs. However, the full saving potential can only be used when this amount of compressed air is dried exactly to the respectively required degree. With this, drying is directly geared to the application itself. What is generally required is highest reliability and immediate availability of the compressed air. This applies in equal measure to laboratory purposes, to applications in workshops or outdoors, whether mobile or stationary.

The DRYPOINT® M PLUS membrane dryer with an integrated nanofilter is the innovative solution for efficient filtration and drying in one housing. It offers reliable compressed-air drying at a constant compressed-air temperature, saves energy through low purge air demand and does not need polluting desiccants. In addition, filtration, which is directly connected ahead, prevents condensation upstream of the membrane.

Refrigerant Drying

High Pressure

In addition to filtration, compressed-air drying contributes significantly to an increase in process reliability. Humidity in compressed-air systems causes corrosion, and promotes the growth of micro-organisms. In individual cases, condensate emerges at the point of use - an ongoing danger for the operational flow, for example because of failing pneumatic controls, increased wear and tear or because of other disturbances in the production process.

With considerably enhanced process reliability, the DRYPOINT® dryer technology offers decisive advantages for every field of application. The BEKO TECHNOLOGIES portfolio comprises application-optimised refrigeration, adsorption and membrane dryers for volumes up to 5000 scfm.

Desiccant Drying

Desiccant Drying

In addition to the more common dryer technologies typically employed in compressed air applications, BEKO TECHNOLOGIES also offers a complete range of blower operated, heated purge systems, as well as systems for high pressure applications in excess of 7,000 psig.

BEKO TECHNOLOGIES has developed the DRYPOINT® X line of desiccant dryers that are focused completely on reducing energy consumption. By significantly reducing air loss and using the most energy effcient components possible, energy savings up to 80% can be realized when compared to conventional designs. The energty savings alone offer a complete economic payback after a short period of time.
