The energy savings of using air compressors is reflected in the total cost of the industrial process, so you can save up to 40% of wasted energy from the air compressors in your facility.
It will also effectively affect harmful carbon dioxide emissions, which are hazardous to the environment.
Atlas Copco offers you the most important tips that enable you to get the most out of the energy of your air compressors, while at the same time enabling you to save energy.
The first and most effective way to help you save the most energy is to reduce the hours of operating the air compressors through the control units.
Through the controllers, you can also set the compressors to run for a certain number of hours, and switch work between them.
You can also reduce production time, thus turning off compressors, and not leaving them without work.
Air leakage is one of the most important reasons for wasting energy. Air leaks can waste about 20% of the total air consumption under pressure.
Regular maintenance can detect compressed air leaks, especially if you notice that the cost has increased significantly, and then repair them immediately.
Among the most effective tips for properly utilizing the power of air compressors is; Using compressor heat recovery techniques, this heat is naturally released into the air, causing environmental pollution.
The solution in this case is to rely on heat recovery technologies for air compressors, which saves you consumption and preserves the environment at the same time.
These technologies will also save you cost, and you will not need external power sources.
Oil-injected screw compressors can save up to 70% of energy, while oil-free can save up to 94% through compressor heat recovery technologies.
