Piping system helps one plant perform simple reconfigurations

Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials (Mudanjiang) Co., Ltd., China, primarily manufactures green silicon carbide. In 2009 Atlas Copco supplied the company with a modular AIRnet piping system, which allows simple reconfiguration of the factory whenever required. Installed at the same time were ZT Series oil-free screw compressors enabling the company to meet the ISO 8573-1 “0” standard for oil content in the compressed air. Atlas Copco has now become a strategic global supplier to the Saint-Gobain Group.

Saint-Gobain Ceramic Materials (Mudanjiang) Co., Ltd., is located in the city of Mudanjiang in Heilongjiang Province. In 2009, with the leap-forward development of photovoltaic industry, the demand for silicon carbide increased sharply and Saint-Gobain expanded its production capacity.

The layout of the Saint-Gobain factory requires frequent adjustments. Atlas Copco’s AIRnet air piping system is a modular concept allowing simple reconfiguration. Individual components can be removed and re-installed repeatedly as the configuration of the factory is changed. The components are made from robust, lightweight, powder-coated aluminum tube. It is designed for easy, low-cost installation with a large selection of engineered polymer fittings. The AIRnet system conveys high-quality air from the compressor to any point in the process without loss of pressure.

The Atlas Copco ZT Series of oil-free screw compressors meet the latest ISO 8573-1 "0" standard for oil content in the compressed air and this has been confirmed by TÜV based on stringent measurement and testing. In the ZT Series, a two-stage compression system minimizes energy consumption.
