Main advantages of compressors by Ateliers Francois for PET packaging blowing are as follows:

  1. L-type structure, which allows to ensure low equipment maintenance costs. Only two cross-heads two piston rods and bag bearings. Pistons of the 2nd and 3rd stages are mounted in a single rod, which reduces the number of valves and ensures lower energy consumption.
  2. High unit efficiency is guaranteed due to low rotation speed of compressor crank mechanism of 340 to 670 rpm, which ensures low wear of piston rings, lengthy service life of separate parts and compressor in general.

Easy and quick mounting due to application of anti-vibration pads. No need to apply special foundation, which allows to significantly reduce the compressor mounting costs.
