sistema ad aria compressa integrato sostituisce compressori 12 con due, investimento ripaga in meno di un anno
BOGE Compressori ha aiutato a materie plastiche e società di estrusione soffiaggio a Haydock, Merseyside per ottenere significativi risparmi sui costi energetici, ridurre la sua impronta di carbonio e prepararsi per la futura espansione con un nuovo sistema di aria compressa integrato. Il progetto è stato gestito da BOGE Platinum Partner del flusso d'aria Compressori e pneumatica, che ha fornito due compressori S-range Böge e il controllo Master BOGE airtelligence Provis 2.0.
With rapid growth creating significant new demands for compressed air across the company’s operations, the customer realised it was time to reassess the design and operation of its compressed air supply. It asked Airflow to audit energy use at its production site, to see if there were opportunities to reduce energy costs alongside the required capacity increase.
The company’s existing compressed air infrastructure, which had grown incrementally over time, consisted of three separate systems using 12 compressors with a total capacity of 975HP (727kW). To understand air demand and energy use across the site, Airflow’s engineers installed data logging equipment on each of the compressors to monitor air use and energy consumption over a week of 24/7 operation.
The data revealed a significant opportunity to save energy by replacing the three existing systems with a single, integrated network using the latest control technology. The new system recommended by Airflow uses a BOGE S125 fixed speed compressor to deliver the customer’s base-load air requirements, together with an SLF125 variable speed drive compressor providing additional capacity to match air output precisely with demand.
L'ultima generazione della serie S collaudato di compressori ad alta capacità è stata progettata per la massima efficienza, elevata affidabilità e funzionamento eccezionalmente silenzioso. Innovative, caratteristiche di risparmio energetico della gamma includono motori ad alta efficienza, ventole di raffreddamento a velocità variabile e alla fine dell'aria effilence Böge, il design più efficiente l'azienda ha mai sviluppato. Il sistema di controllo di messa a fuoco 2.0 integrati nelle unità li rende anche facile da usare particolare, monitorare e mantenere.
In the new installation the two units are controlled by the BOGE airtelligence 2.0 Provis master compressor control, which uses intelligent algorithms to sense demand patterns and deliver the required air using the most efficient combination of compressors. System performance can be monitored and controlled remotely via a web-based interface, or using the controller’s integrated colour touch screen display.
The savings offered by the new configuration come from a number of sources, including the better management of overall system pressure, the elimination of unloaded running and a reduction in purged air. Combined with the higher overall efficiency of the new BOGE S range compressors, Airflow calculated that the company’s energy costs could be reduced by more than £74,000 a year, while also increasing air capacity by 35 per cent to accommodate future growth. Furthermore, reducing the number of compressors at the facility from 12 to two resulted in a £7,000 reduction in annual maintenance costs.
The total cost of the new system, including compressors, controls and the pipework modifications required to link the customer’s three systems was less than one year’s estimated combined energy and maintenance cost savings, providing payback in less than 12 months.”
Reliability and warranty support were also important factors when it came to selecting the BOGE compressors. “In addition to the specific power of the BOGE S-range and the technology available from the Focus 2.0 controller and Provis master controller, the customer was impressed with the BOGE five year, 42,000 hour warranty,” says Dean Urmston, National Sales Executive at Airflow Compressors & Pneumatics. “With the plant operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week, a 42,000 hour warranty was essential.”
