Emirates Refreshments Company has acquired two units of Atlas Copco ZD Xtend 132/55 to meet the compressed air demand on both the medium pressure (7 barg) and high pressure (40 barg) at their plant in Dibba, UAE
The ZD Xtend compression system is based on a combination of screw and piston technology providing 2-stage screw compression to achieve a pressure of 7-10 barg as required and boosting compressed air to 40 barg with 2-stage reciprocating booster, both housed in acoustic enclosures that reportedly reduces noise to the lowest in the industry.
The ZD Xtend setup allows a user to obtain both 7barg medium pressure air and 40barg high pressure air from the same set of equipment.
They are compliant with ISO 8573-1 Class Zero (2010) certification, which ensures elimination of the risk of contamination to the process downstream.
The selected ZD packages also possess the required flexibility to deliver the medium pressure 7 bar air and the high pressure 37 bar air from the same machines, which means that no additional compressor for 7 bar was required.
