Process air for "Air Lubrication Systems"

What we are looking for:
We are looking for ship engineering companies, shipbuilder, shipyards and refiter applying our Blower the "PillAerator" for "Air Lubrication Systems", reducing the fuel consupmtion of large ships by 5-10 %.

What we offer:
The PillAerator GmbH is a spin-off of Piller Blowers & Compressors GmbH and offer a turbo blower for applications where atmospheric process air is needed on a constant pressure level.

Our PillAerator is the ideal blower for "Air Lubricated System" that is approved to reduce the use of fuel of naval vessels by 5-10%.

Our blower has the following advantages compared to conventional blowers:
- Energy savings
- Dynamic control of optimal operating points between 15% and 100 % of the power
- Infinite variation of motor speed
- Performance up to 88 %
- Oil- and particle-free air
- Maintenance free
- Attrition free
- Longer duration
- Possibility of start-stop use

Constructive advantages
- Magnetic bearings with directly mounted impeller
- 100 % free of lubrication
- Intuitive control via a build-in display
- Easy integration into process control system
