Wave Series Engine Start High Pressure Piston Compressor – W 64 / W 108 / W 166 / W 210

HERTZ proudly presents its new WAVE Series starting air compressors, HERTZ has taken its previous starting air compressor series one step further by developing it for all applications where medium pressure is a must, especially for the maritime sector where HERTZ has served meticulously since its establishment. Thanks to W type compressor design, low compression ratios can be obtained in WAVE series compressors, which produce low temperature outlet air, resulting in consuming less energy for air cooling. In addition to this, low power transmission losses can be secured with a directly coupled motor shaft and crankshaft.This model shows high stability and performance characteristics even in 55 °C ambient temperatures when operating non-stop in full-load conditions. WAVE series compressors provide flexible operation and effective system control opportunities to its owners with continuous full-load operation, adjustable pressure levels between 12 and 45 bars, and the control panel indicating machine performance data and maintenance periods.
