Scroll Technology Operating at High Speed and Low Pressure
Beyond Scroll is a Swiss start-up based in Winterthur, Switzerland. Our goal is to bring to the market a new compressor based on miniaturized scroll co-rotating technology, which enables oil-free operations and thermochemical cycles for renewable energy applications, today hindered by the presence of oil.
The compression chambers are designed to be completely oil- and contamination-free to ensure 100% gas purity. Our compressors will be compact and ready for portable use as they require a low energy input of 1 – 20 kWe. Not only they will operate at a high speed and from low to high pressure, but they will also be extremely reliable with a lifetime of 10’000 hours. They will also be immensely versatile as they can be mounted on multiple orientations and work with many different types of gas.
Today, off-grid thermal systems, air batteries, and H2 compression/storage system are among the most promising technologies for a sustainable and clean energy future. One of the main limitations to the widespread use of these technologies is the lack of an oil-free compression machine reliable and efficient at low pressure and capable to displace large gas volumes at high speed.
We solve this problem with our innovative co-rotating scroll compressor which allows 100% oil-free operations with unrivalled performance, specially at low pressure.
Its design can be tailored to natural and inexpensive gases such as air, hydrogen, CO2, propane, as well as to specific customer needs. Our technology ensures the gas will not be contaminated during the compression process, and it also saves companies time and resources for equipment maintenance. Beyond Scroll’s compressors serve several markets: off-grid energy production/storage, hydrogen refueling stations, carbon sequestration, and e-mobility as well as medtech, manufacturing and aerospace. Our mission is to tackle global challenges and accelerate decarbonization and the transition to a climate-neutral future with our products and services
Oil is used in compressor machines for lubrication and sealing. This causes system contamination, need of separation hardware, and higher overhaul costs as well as limited speed and safety concerns. In addition, it hinders recycling and the implementation of thermochemical cycles for renewable energy applications.
Beyond Scroll oil-free solution for small-scale applications is fully recyclable and enables its use for renewable energy applications, i.e., off-grid energy production/storage, hydrogen compression/storage, and CO2 capturing. Our technology ensures the gas will not be contaminated during the compression process, and it also saves companies time and resources for equipment maintenance.
Most oil-free compressors on the market are capable of working with one particular type of gas. Our compressors can be easily tailored to work with different types of gases (air, hydrogen, CO2, propane) and deliver unrivalled performance at low-pressure.
Our miniaturised scroll compressors are capable to perform with high efficiency and ensure high level of gas tightness. They will also be immensely versatile as they can be mounted on multiple orientations.
