TANABE regards "Life Cycle Cost" as an important factor.

Life cycle cost is a collective term for "(Installation cost + Power cost + Maintenance cost) /Service life". The installation, power and maintenance costs are low, while extending service years. To keep costs low and service life long, in other words, for "the longtime usage", TASK series has integrated the power saving system, for durability and maintainability at the highest level.

More compressed air with minimum gross power consumption

Electric charges take up more than a half of the life cycle cost. TANABE works on the task of reducing electric charges with the latest technology including the IPM motor. We have also focused on electricity that is consumed for purposes other than air compression. Hence, we manage to keep gross power consumption, including the power consumption of fans, to a minimum in the industry.

IPM Motor + Control System

We have adopted the Interior Permanent Magnet motor(18.5kW-110kW)which proudly offers the highest level of efficiency around the globe. In addition, at it's optimum performance, based on amount of air consumed, it has achieved a twenty-one percent energy savings when compared with former standard machines. (*See the chart below)

IPM=The world's most efficient motor in use!

In the IPM motor, the calorific value is half of the conventional motor, for there is no coil that electrifies rotor. Hence, the thermal energy that had been formerly wasted is saved. The reduction of the calorific value has made the service life of the bearing longer, and thus the length of the recommended bearing exchange cycle (*1) has tripled.

Control that Reads the Air - TASK Power Control

In the dawn of the screw compressor industry, when the outlet throttle valve control (*1) was still mainstream, TASK had already adopted a load/unload control (*2). The outcome of the relentless pursuit of highly efficient control methods was the TPC(TASK Power Control).

From 18% to 100% of the air consumption is operated in variable speed, and from 0 to 18% is operated in load/unload control as for optimized rotation. The motor automatically stops when air is not consumed for a fixed period of time, and when the pressure drops, the motor generates power automatically. IPM motor is able to carry out accurate and advanced control, and to always keep the power at a minimum against the load.

(*1) Adjusts the inlet pressure through inlet valve apertures, from 0 to 100%. When non-loaded, the power is about 70% of standard rating.

(*2) Opening and closing the valves, and reducing the pressure, adjusts the air amount to 0 or 100%. When non-loaded, the power is 25% to 30% of standard rating.

TASK series is designed simply, with the user in mind. Fewer components make it easy to specify trouble cause. Exchanging parts is also uncomplicated. It is the crown of TANABE Technology.

Easy Maintenance

We have adopted the integrated module to be compatible with both compactness and maintainability of machines with 5.5 - 22kW of power. Filters have also been integrated with the compressor body. Shortening the pluming length and reducing pressure loss have resulted in improved efficiency and energy savings. Also the parts for servicing are laid out in close proximity to ensure maintainability. A Downsized, compact body allows more choices in locations for installation.

Machine parts are laid out with extra space and are designed with maintainability in mind. Hence, it is easy to exchange four parts for servicing: inlet filter, patrone (oil separator cartridge), oil filter and oil. Less maintenance time will reduce the impact on the environment.

Prevents foreign contaminants from mixing with the air-end, and also prevents oil contamination. Generally, the recommended period of replacement is every 2,000 hours of operation.

After the mixture of air and lube is compressed, Patrone functions as a separator to isolate air. Generally, the recommended period of replacement is every 6,000 hours of operation.

Constantly keeps oil clean, and prevents foreign contaminants from mixing with air-end. Generally, the recommended period of replacement is every 6,000 hours of operation.

The life span of screw compressors is thought to be about ten years in general. However, ten years in TASK machinery can be likened to the adolescence stage of humans- When maintained properly, it has a much longer life span.

To 1.42(1.37)MPa boost by a wide margin

Germany is known to have high technology and to manufacture simple yet strong and sturdy products. Air-end (the body of compressors) is the very heart of the compressor, and is brimming with German expertise.

The pressure of a high-performance twin rotor, that is exceptionally gastight, can smoothly boost up to 1.42MPa (*1) in a single-stage compression. Another rotor with 0.69/0.98MPa specifications is also designed with equal gastight capabilities and a higher durability.

(*1)Partly can boost up to MAX:1.37MPa
