Frito Lay, an affiliate of PepsiCo Foods, reinforced its leader position in environmental awareness, achieving an average of 30% energy efficiency and lower noise levels by choosing Atlas Copco screw blower technology for its water treatment facility.
In conventional wastewater activated sludge plants, the aeration blower system accounts for up to 70 percent of the energy usage. The Atlas Copco ZS+ blowers come in a fully integrated package, including Variable Speed Drive (VSD) to precisely match the air delivery to the customer's air demand, reducing the energy bill of these continuously operating plant significantly.
30% less on the energy bill. That’s the difference Atlas Copco’s complete compressor set-up with blowers makes for Oman’s largest cement manufacturer and Middle East cement pioneer, Oman Cement Company SAOG (OCC). OCC requires air for plant and instrument air, pneumatic conveyors and for aeration in the cement silos. The equipment has to operate continuously in the toughest conditions and at ambient temperatures up to 55°C/131°F. That's why OCC relies on Atlas Copco.
Northumbrian Water, a leading provider of water and sewerage services in the North East of England, has chosen Atlas Copco screw blower technology to help reduce energy consumption and minimise service costs at its sewage treatment works in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham.
