Industrial Breathing Air Systems

Breathing air systems are essential components for the purification of compressed air within industrial plants. In order to make compressed air breathable, contaminants such as carbon monoxide must be effectively removed from the air supply. By implementing our industrial breathing air systems into your processes, businesses can be ensured an enhanced compressed air supply that is fit for human consumption

Breathing air systems from Atlas Copco

Industrial plants often require employees to work in environments with ambient air, which is not suitable for long-term exposure. Workplace standards for environmental safety regulate the necessity for industrial plants to ensure their operators have an uncontaminated air supply. As such, industrial breathing air systems become essential equipment for both complying with regulations and ensuring a safe working environment for staff.

For a complete purification system, Glaston offers breathing air compressors from industry-leaders,Atlas Copco. Designed for the removal of all contaminants, the BAP12-142(+) series of breathing air purifiers eliminates excess moisture, solid particles, oils and vapours, as well as carbon monoxide from ordinary compressed air.

As a complete breathing air purification system, The BAP and BAP+ models are capable of meeting all quality requirements and international standards, including ISO 14971 and BS 4275. Typical applications of BAP and BAP(+) breathing air systems include the petrochemical and construction industries, spray painting and within confined spaces, such as tanks and vats.

High-spec industrial breathing air systems

The exceptionally high performance of Atlas Copco’s breathing air systems is matched by exceptional features. For energy efficiency the BAP+ series incorporates state-of-the-art energy management control with built-in purge control as standard. The purge saver stops the purge flow when the dew point level remains low, leading to a more efficient use of energy.

Through clever component positioning, the BAP/BAP+ fits into any space or setting. It comes pre-assembled and ready for use, ensuring minimal installation time and cost.

Six-steps of filtrationwith BAP/BAP(+)breathing air systems

KBS breathing air systems employ a six-step purification process for ensuring breathable air:

  • Stages 1-2 – A water separator for free water removal together with a fine and coarse coalescing filter,removes oil aerosol to less than 0.01 mg/m³.
  • Stage 3 – A heatless desiccant dryer reduces moisture content to a pressure dew point of -40°C/-40°F, removing any risk of condensation, bacteria and mold growth.
  • Stage 4-5 – A dual cleaning stage includes activated carbon to eliminate hydrocarbons (oil vapour, smells, etc.). A catalyst then converts CO into CO2.
  • Stage 6 – A bacterial filter at the exit removes bacteria and particles that may have been introduced in the desiccant stages with a count efficiency of 99.99%.
