Blower and compressor technology in slim ISO containers AERZEN focuses on pragmatic solutions Blower technology in containers has the potential to make process air supply noticeably leaner, more flexible and simpler. AERZEN has already gained many years of experience in this area from its own rental business – and is now combining this know-how into a new solution. The idea: compressed air from the ISO container. AERZEN container solutions offer maximum flexibility in use.Whether 20 or 40 feet long, ISO containers have the great ad- vantage of being standardized – right down to uniform lifting gear and truck trailers. Containers are also easy to stack. They are statically self-sufficient and, of course, they are also available with effective sound insulation. AERZEN now combines these features with its blower and compressor technology, creating a convincing symbiosis of the latest ma- chine technology and maximum flexibility. Thanks to this pragmatic solution, it will be possible in future to supply complete blower or compressor stations for quick connection and commissioning on site. The high power density of, for example, 24,000 m3/h compressed air per container with 3 x Aerzen Turbo AT 200 0.8s ensures versatile application possibilities per container unit in connection with a high control range. This aspect also opens the way for placing the process air generation as close as possible to where it is needed. This shortens operating distances, which means reduced costs for piping and energy savings can be made due to lower pressure losses.Install as a mixed teamThe container solutions are suitable for all standard blower and compressor types from AERZEN. The Delta Blower, Hybrid, Screw and Aerzen Turbos can also be installed as a mixed team, as a suitably designed complete package, including noise protection measures, suitable power components, such as frequency inverters and controls according to the requirements of the customer-specific application. From a structural point of view, two strip foundations are all that is needed to mount a weatherproof ventilation container in a stable position on site.Typical applications In general, separate building permits are not necessary, nor are architectural or structural engineering services. And if the plant layout of a production company changes, the container can simply be moved along with it to ensure the investment is protected. AERZEN sees applications with high air requirements as typical areas of use for process air from ISO containers. These include wastewater technology, the building materials industry and the broad field of bulk materials technology.
