Ultima technology

Ultima, a new, water-cooled oil-free compressor, is said to offer up to 12% improved energy efficiency compared to a conventional two-stage machine with a 37% smaller footprint.

It is available in models from 75 to 160kW and is designed for best in class performance, for applications that demand the highest levels of air quality and purity.

Ultima uses the U-Drive concept – two, high-efficiency, permanent magnet motors which replace the gearbox and single motor. These variable-speed motors, powered by an inverter, can achieve speeds of up to 22,000 rpm and deliver efficiencies greater than IE4.
