Our new codes
20% of the global industrial electric energy consumption goes to the gas compressors’ operation. The future saving potentials are estimated to be no higher than 15% for the established maximum power and power-to-weight ratio. Our gas compressor, SARC, can go up to 38% energy saving and depending on the size of the application: 40% higher output pressure, 48%-61% weight reduction and 74%-86% size reduction.
Our gas compressor's operating principle is based on SARM engine's design, offering vast reductions in size, weight and energy efficiency. Currently we are finishing our first prototype
Our expander's operating principle is also based on SARM engine's design and it's currently at TRL 4 stage, scheduled for a prototype by the end of 2020.
The four main categories of positive displacement gas compressors that today are the most widespread and efficient in the industry field are the following:
the reciprocating piston compressor (Reciprocating),
the rotary screw compressor (Screw),
the rotary scroll compressor (Scroll) and
the rotary vane compressor (Sliding Vane rotary compressors or SVR)
SARC offers oil free operation, when no more than 20% of all commercial compressors can operate in oil-free conditions and with a pressure output higher than 12 bar. In general, significant concern about the compressors’ technology is the maximum developed pressure inside the compression chamber at the end of the compression process
This novel design of SARC is applied in three scales for three different applications aiming to compare it with today’s best single-stage compressors on every scale. The chosen applications are:
A portable small size application [40-50 m3/h]
A portable medium size application [200-250 m3/h]
An industry stationary big size application [1200-1300 m3/h]
