Industry innovator Vert Rotors UK Ltd. will unveil its new A150 compressor which features the pioneering Vert Conical Rotary Compressor technology at a major industry conference next week in London.
The Scottish firm’s A150 – based on its patented Conical Rotary Compressor (CRC) technology – will be on display at City University of London which is hosting the 11th International Conference on Compressors & their Systems. Industry leaders from around the world will see the A150 – designed specifically for operation in areas where low noise and continuous operation is an advantage – in action for the first time.
Running from September 9-11, the biennial convention is a gathering of research organisations, developers, manufacturers, equipment suppliers and users of compressors, expanders, pumps and their systems. It provides a forum for discussion on developments, challenges and opportunities in the gas, refrigeration and air sectors.
The A150 offers 150lpm flow and 10 bar pressure with an optional variable speed drive, all with low levels of noise and vibration to ensure minimal impact on surrounding people and equipment. The portable and compact unit fits neatly under a bench or in a van, so can be sited close to the point of use.
Its unique combination of benefits also includes a 100% duty cycle for maximum productivity, meaning that it is capable of running continuously. Connecting to a standard 240V power source with quick coupling of the compressed air connection means it does not require the expensive installation of some other rival compressors.
Phil Harris, chief executive of Vert, said the company is delighted to bring this latest innovation to the market.
“Previously thought unachievable, our CRC technology is forging a new path in the industry and this latest A150 product launch demonstrates the benefits of the technology in action.,” Phil said.
“We are excited about the potential to exploit its benefits across a variety of markets, and are greatly looking forward to putting the A150 on its first public display next week. The International Conference on Compressors & their Systems is an ideal showcase for the latest development from Vert.”
Vert was founded in 2013 to develop its conical rotary compressor technology, which has been hailed as the biggest innovation in the compressed air industry of the last 40 years. The technology has won multiple awards since the first working prototype was produced in 2014, and led to Vert securing a prestigious government grant earlier this year from the UK Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
