Blowers – Howden

KA series: Single stage turbocompressor part of the HV-TURBO Range and TURBLEX in the US.​

​The HV-TURBO / TURBLEX KA compressor has an advanced mechanical and aero-dynamical design and cutting edge control system. The air-end and integral gearbox have been developed and evolved based on 30 years of manufacturing experience, creating the most highly efficient air compressor available in the market today.

Each customised KA compressor is uniquely made to fit with a specific plant’s specifications thereby consuming significantly less energy compared to other compressor designs. The high quality compressor components, and the conformance with all technical standards, ensure long-term reliability and minimum maintenance.

Efficiency by design

Each of our carefully designed compressors are customised to site conditions, while consuming minimal required power. The compressors may be controlled by variable inlet guide vanes, variable diffusors, or both. The choice between the various control systems available, is based on the variable flow rate demand, the discharge pressure, and possible ambient conditions.

The KA turbo compressor is also available as the BaseLINE version, which is particularly suited for waste water treatment.
