TECHNOLOGY - Atlas Copco Compressed Air Technology Delivers Oil-free Compressed Air for PET Bottle Production
The compressors are also connected to a heat recovery system, thereby reducing electricity costs even further.Preforms made of polyethylene terephthalate, better known as PET, are blown into drinks bottles using the stretch blow molding method, which requires a lot of compressed air and a high level of pressure. The compressed air supply at Schwarzwald-Sprudel in Wildberg is based on three ZR screw compressors, two of which are equipped with spee ...
