Becoming a more efficient businees

Compressed air is often considered an on-site generated energy source since energy is needed to convert electricity into compressed air. It can be one of the most expensive sources of energy in a plant.

Very often, the actual cost of generation is unknown. Only 10% to 20% of the energy required to generate compressed air ever reaches the point of use, while the remaining energy is wasted in the form of heat.

The over-all efficiency of a typical compressed air system can be as low as 10%-15%. A study by the U.S. Department of Energy suggests that more than 50% of industrial compressed air systems could see significant energy savings through low-cost improvements. 

The following information includes tips to help ensure that compressors are running as efficiently as possible:

• Reduce the pressure, test for and fix leaks

• More efficient delivery of compressed air

• Switch off compressors when not in use and measure air use

• Use variable speed drive technology and heat recovery option

What is VSD Technology?

Some of industrial operations, the demand for compressed air is variable.

In such conditions our compressors automatically adjust the compressor’s operating speed to match air production to demand in real time, saving significant amounts of energy.

A traditional fixed speed air compressor can only operate at full capacity. Fixed speed compressors consume a lot of energy when less air is required and some of the energy is wasted.

Our engineering team the highest quality rotary screw air compressors with variable speed drive technology that enable us to build a better, more efficient future. You can count on our expertise to increase your production productivity.

Why Hertz Kompressoren VSD?

• Whereas VSD compressor works only according to the amount of need, it reduces the energy cost.

• There is no need to unload, which saves both time and energy.

• Air system pressure is more consistent and also lower, minimizing energy consumption and air leaks.

• Motor and inverter are specially designed to provide maximum efficiency.

• The motors have successfully passed tests performed in the harshest conditions such as high temperature and high pressure.

• Variable speed compressors vibrate less than the other models used in the market.

Heat Recovery Options for even More Savings

• In compressor, a high amount of heat is released during the compression of the air.

• A large amount of heat is recovered with a suitable oil/water exchanger placed at the oil tank outlet of the compressor. The hot water obtained with the heat recovery can be used in many areas in your facilities.

• By directing the hot air coming out of the compressor, a room can be heated when heating is required, or hot air can be given outside with thermostatic control, in accordance with seasonal changes. In this way, savings from the heating system and natural gas are provided.

• 80% of the compressor’s total energy consumption can be recovered
