Making the highest quality elastic fabric with ZT oil-free air compressors

As leading raw materials supplier in the synthetic textiles industry, the Gomelast Group has an extensive presence throughout Latin America. ZT oil-free compressors and refrigerant dryers supply high-quality air to the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Peru.

To consolidate its growing position in the market and facilitate international logistics, Gomelast started activities in Peru in 1998 by establishing a sales company for its products manufactured by its subsidiary in Venezuela. Success came in 2003, when the third coated-thread plant was set up in the Ate district of Peru to meet the needs of customers in more than nine Latin American countries.

At its state-of-the-art plant in this industrial hub, Gomelast uses ZT 160 VSD and ZT 200 oil-free rotary screw compressors and cooler dryers. Developed especially for applications demanding high levels of purity, ZT compressors eliminate the risks of oil contamination by providing 100 percent pure, clean oil-free air.

The ZT compressors are also extremely efficient due to their Variable Speed Drive technology (VSD). VSD offers direct energy savings of 35 percent on average by eliminating load/no load transition losses and precisely regulating air supply to meet fluctuating demands.
