Compressed air is one of the most
important utilities for the industry.
It is also one of the largest consumers of energy.
Therefore, any savings made in compressed
air systems have a significant impact on costs
and on the environment.
According to the laws of thermodynamics the energy used to compress air is transformed into heat. The major portion of this heat - up to 94% - remains in the compressed air and lubrication oil.
Up to 94% of the electrical energy is converted into compression heat. Without energy recovery, this heat is lost into the atmosphere via the cooling system and radiation.
All around the world, companies rely on our expertise and innovations to help grow their businesses. They count on us to cut their costs without cutting their productivity.
The biggest part of your compressor Life Cycle Cost is spent on energy (up to 70%). When discussing cost reduction it's only logical that energy consumption should be the main focus. ours and yours. Through leakage detection, optimisation of your processes, pressure band reduction and the utilisation of the latest technologies, energy reduction of your equipment can be achieved successfully.
