Because the humidity of the ambient air is contained in the intake air, condensate always accumulates during compressing the compressed air in the compressor. The contamination already contained in the ambient air, such as dust and dirt particles or aerosols, are then located in the condensate in highly concentrated form. Condensate continues to also accumulate again in the additional compressed air treatment (filtration and drying) procedure. The condensate technology enables this polluted and environmentally harmful waste product to be discharged and treated, as it must not be initiated into the sewer system.
Condensate is generated at almost all stations in the compressed air system, from the compressing stage through to treatment by filtration or drying. BEKOMAT helps you remove condensate from your compressed air and achieve the optimum quality for your application . In doing so, the energy expenditures and thereby the costs are kept as low as possible. Renowned compressor manufacturers from all over the world rely on the intelligent technology from BEKOMAT.
A fusion of tried-and-trusted condensate discharge & digitisation
Our tried-and-trusted BEKOMAT condensate drains have been well known for decades for the operational reliability, durability and simple installation of the products as well as their efficiency, economic efficiency and eco-friendliness. We are now going a step further and enriching the previous functionality with the advantages and benefits of the digital world. The new BEKOMAT i4.0 thus fulfils the expectations placed on i4.0 systems such as networkability, remote monitoring, flexibility and, above all, future-proofing.
Condensate processing is the next stage after condensate discharge. The legislator has clear provisions here which must be complied with. With the ÖWAMAT oil-water separation systems and BEKOSPLIT reaction separation plants, you can process condensate in an environmentally friendly, cost-effective and legally compliant manner - directly on site and without an approval procedure. Owners and operators of compressors and compressed air systems can easily treat condensate themselves with a processing system. Compared to the treatment of the entire amount of condensate by specialist companies, the self-administered condensate processing saves around 90% of the disposal costs - and therefore amortises itself in a very short time.
An even more economical solution for environmentally friendly condensate processing is the decentralised oil-water separation directly at the point of origin. Condensate processed with ÖWAMAT can be directly discharged as purified water into the sewer system.
The BEKOSPLIT separates even stable emulsions and enables a reliable and economical treatment for resulting condensates. In this way, our emulsion processing systems create load-free disposal of oil-contaminated industrial wastewater.
Disperse condensates separate into different phases after a certain time. In this case, the condensate can be treated with an ÖWAMAT. Emulsion-containing condensates are long-term stable, they do not separate after a certain time. This makes treatment with a BEKOSPLIT necessary.
BEKO TECHNOLOGIES can analyse your condensate in their own laboratory and analyse the properties which are relevant for your application. On this basis, we can determine the optimum processing path and the correct design for your system. BEKO TECHNOLOGIES analysis service simultaneously ensures compliance with legal environmental regulations.
