Energy management is crucial for all compressed air users, as the highest cost factor of a compressor is the energy to run it. However, this high cost also means that there is a huge potential for savings. CompAir can help customers realize these cost savings with its compressed air management system, SmartAir Master.
Compressed air systems are typically made up of multiple compressors that deliver air to a common distribution system. The combined capacity of those machines is generally greater than the maximum site demand. With CompAir's SmartAir Master, the efficiency of compressor stations with up to 12 compressors can be maximized.
The SmartAir Master sequencer calculates the system demand and selects the most suitable compressor combination to meet exactly the plant requirements, which in turn offers significant energy savings. This ability to harmonize the workload of up to 12 fixed or regulated speed compressors eliminates energy waste by tightening the network pressure to the narrowest pressure band, and equalizes the running hours for economic servicing and increased uptime. Unlike conventional control systems, further equipment such as dryers, filters and condensate drains can be included, ensuring the complete compressed air system works at optimum performance. An added bonus: the unit features an intuitive touchscreen display, which gives plant managers a comprehensive overview of the complete system, including downstream equipment, to help improve the complete network performance.
Up to 35 per cent of energy savings can be achieved by implementing a central SmartAir Master multi-compressor controller. In addition to energy savings, the compressed air management system also contributes to decreased downtime, optimum performance, service and monitoring, and ultimately leads to increased plant productivity.
The unit is also easy to set up and operate thanks to its user-friendly design.
