Motivair launches cleanest air compressor in the industry (April 2011)

21 April, 2011

Motivair, the independent UK provider of compressed air services, has announced the launch of Opus Crystal, a revolutionary new compressor package which uses innovative catalytic technology to deliver crystal clear air - simply, efficiently and economically.

Opus Crystal combines traditional compressor technologies with a bespoke catalytic system that is designed to remove all impurities from the atmosphere, including minuscule hydrocarbon particles. This makes it the perfect solution for industries such as food manufacture, hospitals, dentists, pharmaceutical, spray finishing and anywhere else where pollutant-free air is essential.
“Our engineers brought together two known technologies to create something radically new” says Chris Rhodes, Managing Director of Motivair. “Until now, all compressors, whether oil free or not, have required filters. With Opus Crystal that is no longer true”.
The technology, tested by the renowned German safety agency, TÜV, means that the Opus Crystal has been certified as producing air which is well within the limits for class zero to ISO8573.1:2010. Furthermore, the condensate is so clean it can be disposed of straight down a foul sewer.
As an evolution to the traditional ‘oil-free’ systems currently available in the UK, Opus Crystal actually deals with the issue of how clean the air is at the point of intake. Using catalytic material heated to +200°C, the unit chemically converts harmful hydrocarbons into harmless water and carbon dioxide, capturing all other unwanted molecules in the catalyst.

Yet Opus Crystal is not a luxury machine. It costs no more than a traditional compressor, with the added advantage that servicing costs are reduced as high specification filters are no longer required downstream from the compressor package, and there is only one compressor air-end.
