Air compressor company Boge has released an anniversary compressor to celebrate its 111th year in manufacturing, featuring the company's founder Otto Boge as part of its exclusive design.

The S 111-4 anniversary compressor featurs a bright white design instead of the typical Boge blue to emhasise the significance that the compressed air specialist attributes to this version of its screw compressor.

In addition, the machine intergrates a number of updated features, integrating its traditional status notification into the body of the machine to let users know the machine's operating condition at a single glance with a visible LED light strip.

Boge has also enhanced its IE4 motor, power consumption and soundproofing standard in the S 111-4, and the machine is available with direct drive and frequency control.

Working at a sound level of 67 dBA and a dive capacity of 110 kW, the S 111-4 runs at a low speed of 1500 rpm, which ensures the machine is low-wer and low-maintenance.

Boge is based in Germany and is in its fourth generation as a family run company.

The Australian subsidiary of Boge Compressors operates in Victoria, where the Boge S 111-4 will only be available for the duration of this anniversary year.
