It is always the endeavor of compressed air users to control their air compressors, monitor the efficiency with which they operate, as well as obtain recommendations for improving the operation of compressors, but this requires the use of some tools in order to obtain good results.
In order to be able to know the condition of the equipment responsible for your compressed air at all times, as well as to ensure optimal interaction with it and get the most out of it, this requires the use of the Smart Link remote monitoring system.
Atlas Copco is distinguished from others in that it has a proactive step at all times, whether in providing the latest technology or finding proactive solutions to any problem that may face the work of your air compressor, and this is a result of the vision that it has through its great experience in this field. SMARTLINK always keeps us proactive.
The most important question here remains.. What is the importance of using a remote monitoring system in facilitating the operation of your air compressor?..
Knowing the status of your compressed air equipment at all times is the surest way to spot any developing problems, uncover potential energy savings and achieve maximum uptime of your compressors and your production lines. These insights can be realized through SMARTLINK, Atlas Copco’s remote data monitoring system.
We have plenty of examples that show just how data from SMARTLINK connected compressors has already helped some of our customers, by spotting problems before they led to a production outage. Below are just a few.
Potential 90 thousand EGP & 20-25% energy savings at a F&B company
Smart link detects that the power consumption of the compressors ( GA75 VSD & GA5 & GA55 & GA90 )were too high at one of our customer sites
Our specialist monitored the event via the smart link program by checking the running hours of the compressors ( 29,800 h) and the loaded hours ( 27,700),
Who reported the issue to the customer that they had leakages in his compressed air system and immediately implemented the Airscan ( leak detection test) and out of its report, the customer realized the potential saving of money and wasted flow that reflected on his power consumption.
A timely notification from SMARTLINK prevented a breakdown for a Glass company site
The Smartlink applied on a connected compressor notified our specialist that there is a frequent stopping for (GA250) compressor and this is due to an element outlet temperature, We acted immediately by reporting the issue to the Maintenance Supervisor who directly arranged for a technician to visit the customer site to investigate the issue. The technician fixed the element causing this shutdown failure- the customer was relieved that Atlas Copco had been able to fix the compressor pro-actively and avoid a breakdown associated costs saving him thousands of money and keeping his production running
The control screen is linked to SMARTLINK by a mobile device and an Internet source.
Once the SMARTLINK program is installed it gathers, compares, and analyses data on the spot. and sends you warnings by e-mail or text message if any problem is spotted. This enables you to monitor the operation of your air compressor at all times and from anywhere
One of the important roles that the remote monitoring system plays is to contribute to saving 30% of the energy consumed, as it tracks the vital signals of the air compressor and makes them available all the time and anywhere, as well as increasing the compressor operating time by at least 3%.
Due to the importance of the remote monitoring system provided by Atlas Copco to all its customers, we are always with you in proactively solving the problems that your air compressor faces, relying on our global leadership and the distinguished technical expertise that we have.
