The Xiaoshan Fulida Textile Co.,
China, a privately owned textile manufacturer with annual weaving capacity of more than 100 million
meters, and dyeing and printing capability of 130 million meters, has chosen Sweden-based Atlas
Copco’s oil-free air compressors to operate all of its weaving looms.
After installing two ZR250 oil-free rotary screw compressors in 1998, Fulida now has ordered
one ZR425 and five ZH7000-5 oil-free centrifugal compressors. Atlas Copco says the ZR series
provides reliable, efficient operation with low energy consumption and no risk of oil
The compressors are supplied with an Atlas Copco FD series refrigerant dryer to remove
moisture from the operating system. The delivery pressure dewpoint remains constant at 3°C at a
pressure drop of 0.2 bar.
