Oil-Free Compressors from Dürr Technik Take You Further
Did you know that Dürr Technik is the first manufacturer of oil-free compressors for railway vehicles and supplies most variants of compressors in the railway sector worldwide?
From main air to auxiliary air compressors, Dürr Technik offers its customers a solution from its entire range. Dürr invests time and expertise into optimizing the solution for the train manufacturers, operators, and system suppliers as well. Dürr strives to ensure that its solutions are easy to fit, fast to maintain, and perform faultlessly throughout their life span.
The team at Dürr Technik is dedicated to providing solutions for new build projects or offering compressors for retrofit programmes to replace your old oil-driven compressor units.
Besides reliability, Dürr’s high-quality oil-free units and compressed air systems can deliver enormous potential savings in maintenance costs. Depending on the project, savings of approximately 80% over a 5-year period could be achieved.
Each train has its own character with unique features and specific requirements. Therefore, Dürr Technik offers a wide range of products to suit every application – from its proven main air compressors with an electric motor (and an inverter if required) to belt drive units. Dürr prides itself on taking the time to understand your requirements and providing the best technical solution for you and the rolling stock.
Some lighter railway vehicles, such as trams, use a hydraulic braking system instead of a more traditional pneumatic system. For this reason, Dürr Technik has developed a range of smaller auxiliary air compressors to fulfil the requirements of all applications such as sanding or wheel flange lubrication and where there is no other source of compressed air on the vehicle.
