The Eccentric-Oil free (EO) range of scroll compressors by Boge ensure beverage manufacturers full protection from contamination as these comprise a scroll compressor technology which does without oil lubrication.
The aluminium spirals in the compressor chamber intermesh but do not touch, resulting in compressed air that is pulsation-free and absolutely free of oil. These therefore can be connected to a nitrogen generator that is used when decanting wine, which prevents wine from fermenting further and stops bacteria or mould from forming in the bottle.
Covering the full performance range from 5.5 kW to 22 kW, the EO series is available with one to four airends, and up to four compressors can be installed in the housing of the compressor to ensure flexible adaptation to the compressed air demand.
