Save energy with the HST 30 high-speed turbocompressor

The HST 30 is the newest addition to the HST™ line of high-speed turbocompressors. It offers more flow and pressure at a significantly higher efficiency than its predecessors. This translates into big energy savings by low-pressure air compression in water treatment and industrial processes.

Typical application areas for HST30 are aeration of water, wastewater or other liquids, flotation by air, supplying air to combustion processes or desulfurization. To find out how to save energy and money with HST30, please visit sulzer.com/hst30. Detailed research on compressors was done in cooperation with a Finnish university to achieve this energy reduction. To learn more about the research, read the Sulzer Whitepaper 5/2018.

Getting the vision of opinion leaders

Collecting market needs and developing new ideas is the basis for market-driven products. Sulzer Mixpac has an international network of dentists called opinion leaders, and has collected ideas from four regions around the globe for future Mixpac dental products.

In 2018, an international team of 20 dentists shared their knowledge with Sulzer, being part of the development process. They provided insights into a dentist’s needs and daily challenges. To emphasize the value of their input, Sulzer has now created a new Dental Competence Center. The dentists — each with different expertise — involved in this center hold lectures, conduct market analysis, or lead workshops at dental trade fairs for Sulzer.

International or local needs and trends?

To differentiate between global and regional needs or trends, the product managers at Sulzer Mixpac conduct international market analysis and make use of the input of all opinion leaders around the globe. In the last six months, Sulzer Mixpac has organized four events to meet opinion leaders in four different regions: USA, Brazil, China and Europe. During these events, the dentists discussed hot topics in their region and future trends of dental products. The successful events provided new ideas, which our development department will implement into our product portfolio in the future.
