The broad selection of compressed-air products manufactured by CompAir Canada includes devices for air treatment and related accessories. This includes the SmartAir Master compressed air management system, built for energy management of compressed-air usage. This application is crucial for work environments that use compressed air, because a compressor’s largest cost factor is always the energy to run it. With SmartAir, users can realize large cost savings with the same compressor power.
A solution for superior control
The SmartAir Master compressed air management system is a solution for superior control of energy used in compressors. Since compressed-air systems usually consist of multiple compressors that deliver air into a common distribution system, they tend to have a larger combined capacity than the maximum demand of the work environment. As an advanced-demand responsive sequencer, the SmartAir Master can maximize the efficiency of compressor stations with as many as 12 compressors, including downstream equipment.
In addition to massive energy savings, this compressed air management system also reduces unnecessary downtime, while contributing to optimum performance, service, and monitoring. With SmartAir in place, plants and other workplaces are sure to increase their productivity. Other ways that this device proves itself to be a profitable investment include the following:
- saving energy by as much as 35 per cent with the central SmartAir Master multi-compressor controller;
- harmonizing the workload of up to 12 fixed or regulated-speed compressors;
- eliminating energy waste, by tightening the network pressure to the narrowest pressure band; and
- equalizing the running hours for economic servicing and higher up time.
With its user-friendly design, SmartAir is very simple to set up and use. CompAir has built versatile control functions into this equipment. The SmartAir Master has a sequencer that calculates the system demand and chooses the most compatible compressor combination to comply with the workplace environment’s needs as closely as possible. This is another way that the system saves energy substantially. And users can include dryers, filters, condensate drains, and other further equipment, unlike with more conventional control systems. This keeps SmartAir operating at its maximum performance.
