PREMIUM AERZEN TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE BIOGAS SECTOR

AERZEN screw compressor packages are distinguished by their great variety and numerous modification options. Whether these compressors serve as part of the customer’s plant concept or are applied as a complete system solution, AERZEN will adapt to individual customer requirements. AERZEN’s steady evolution into a world market leader explains our flexibility; our company has constantly innovated, optimised and successfully provided compressors since 1943.

Benefit from AERZEN’s extensive know-how in the chemical and petrochemical industry, gained over decades of experience. Whether it is a reduction in reliance on nuclear energy or CO2 emissions, using biogas as an energy source will considerably help to achieve national and international environmental targets.

At AERZEN, we support these objectives through more than 45 agencies worldwide. For many years, AERZEN blowers and compressors have conveyed and compressed all types of gas and gas mixtures in chemical and petrochemical plants.

Our experience has shown that energy efficiency, plant safety and reliability are the decisive criteria. Based on our know-how and experience, AERZEN offers products developed specially for the biogas market. Whether it is boosting the intake pressure of combined heat and power (CHP) engines and treatment plants for biogas (BGTP), critical infrastructure for biogas injection plants (BGIP), or compressing biomethane to inject into gas grids, AERZEN has a suitable blower or compressor for every possible application.

We offer customers a wide array of machine sizes and design pressures. All blowers and compressors can be used in hazardous areas Zones 1 and 2 as defined under ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU, as well as the Machinery Directive, including the latest safety standard (EN 1012-3) and DVGW regulations in Germany.

Designed specially for the biogas market, these blowers provide the ultimate in reliability and efficiency. Series GM biogas blowers by AERZEN are available in a variety of different sizes. Due to a TÜV-certified explosion pressure resistance of 12 bar, these blowers may also be applied in processes with internal ATEX Zone 1.
