Boge BC series oil-free air converters

The Boge BC series converters are designed to cost-effectively assist producing oil-free compressed air to Class 0 (ISO 8573-0) quality.

Normally, the best way to generate oil-free compressed air is to use an oil-free compressor. However, this can be an expensive option and quite often only feasible for large compressed air users. The BC series converters provide a solution for generating oil-free compressed air without an oil-free compressor.

The BC converter is installed directly downstream from the compressor and has been designed to make downstream oil penetration impossible.

Due to a built-in catalyst system, the converter only produces clean condensate and oil-free compressed air according to quality Class 0 (ISO 8573-0).

The Boge Converter catalyst system ensures the long hydrocarbon chains of the residual oil contained in the compressed air are split up into carbon dioxide and water - substances which are naturally present in the atmosphere. The catalyst material is stored as granulated and compact bulk material in a receiver and compressed air circulates around it. Simultaneously, both oil droplets and oil vapours are cracked which means that both compressed air and any resultant condensate are oil free.

The BC converters operate with a low energy consumption level of between 0.01 and 0.005 kWh/Nm3. Additionally, with no filter pressure loss, operating pressure can be maximised. Additionally, because the converter does not require filtration, element changes are also eliminated.
