Collaboration Between Frito Lay and Atlas Copco Increases Energy Efficiency

Atlas Copco

PepsiCo Foods Turkey offers the best to the market and maximizes and adopts its environmental consciousness through optimizing its production environments aligned with its vision of environmental sustainability. Investing in water conservation, wastewater recycling, energy saving, energy generation and use of alternative energy resources, the company continues to operate in Turkey in 2 factories with water and energy consumption values below the European average.

With its products contributing to sustainable efficient production, Atlas Copco is the desired solution partner as the provider of compressed air needs of Frito Lay facilities. All instrument and process air need of the production facility is provided by the high efficiency 100% oil-free screw compressor groups. Economical and reliable operation target achieved by the screw technology played a significant role in the selection of blower technology to be used in the aeration tanks within the wastewater treatment facility.

Noise level as low as 70 dB(A) at one meter

No unexpected shutdown due to failure occurred since the first operation of the new ZS screw blower in 2010. Beyond this, an average of 30% energy efficiency achieved with the blower helped to significantly lower the operating costs of the wastewater treatment facility. The blowers operate for a minimum of 18 hours per day, seven days a week depending on the need of the facility. Currently, no protection is necessary inside the Treatment Facility’s blower room, where it was once required to wear protective earmuffs. Noise level at one meter is as low as 70 dB(A) with the new ZS series screw blower. The ZS screw blower range gets full marks for customer satisfaction in terms of safety at work and environmental compatibility, contrary to the traditional lobe blower technology operating at higher noise levels.

30% more energy efficient

Offering energy efficiency, ZS screw blowers meet today’s carbon economy requirements, providing an average of 30% higher energy efficiency compared to traditional lobe technology. Atlas Copco launched the new ZS screw blower range, considering the fact that the traditional and commonly used lobe technology of today do not meet the requirement of low carbon economy. Industries and applications including wastewater treatment, pneumatic conveying, energy generation, foods and beverages, pharmaceutical, chemistry, cellulose and paper, textile and general manufacturing achieve significant amounts of energy efficiency through adopting the innovative screw blower technology instead of the traditional lobe technology.
