Modern production systems and processes demand increasing levels of air quality. A CompAir compressed air system utilising the latest technology provides an energy efficient solution at lowest life cycle costs. Implementing heat recovery and sequencers further help to maximise the efficiency. The right filtration and drying systems ensure that the equipment remains protected. Using CompAir nitrogen generators provides many advantages over traditional outsourced supplies, such as greater flexibility and significant impact on time and costs.
COMPRESSED AIR FILTRATION
The reliability of compressed air filtration is paramount to the ongoing fight against problems caused through contamination entering the air system. The CompAir filter range has been constantly innovated and has become a leading technology, providing the exact balance between air quality, energy efficiency and low lifetime costs.
COMPRESSED AIR DRYING
CompAir offers a full range of energy efficient and environmentally friendly dryers, such as refrigerant dryers, heatless and heated desiccant dryers as well as HOC dryers. Reliable refrigerant dryers, proven in thousands of applications, uses the application of high-quality air which ensures continuity and reliability of industrial applications, the highest quality standards for finished products and the optimisation of production costs. CompAir refrigerant dryers are characterised by their energy efficiency, which helps to reduce running costs, thanks to their patented heat exchanger technology.
The electronically level-controlled condensate drains from CompAir are the industrial standard for reliable cost-effective condensate drainage. Our electronic condensate drains are designed to work for compressed air and industrial gases. They are especially and significantly designed to work in conjunction with compressed air filters, refrigeration dryers, wet air receivers and after coolers to reduce compressed air leaks. The end result is saving money.
The cost-effective, reliable and safe solution for medium to large nitrogen requirements. CompAir offers an ideal solution with a comprehensive range of cost effective nitrogen generation systems from compressed air, that enable users to produce their total demand for nitrogen gas on their premises and under their control. Compared to traditional methods of supply, an on-site nitrogen generation system is exceptionally cost-efficient with a short payback time on investment – in many cases less than twelve months.
SMART AIR MASTER
Compressed air systems typically comprise of multiple compressors delivering air to a common distribution system. The combined capacity of those machines is generally greater than the maximum site demand. The SmartAir Master sequencer has versatile functions, which calculate the demand and selects the most suitable combination to precisely meet the plant requirements. An important side effect of this efficiency is the significant energy savings created by the precise production geared to meet the demands without waste.
HEAT RECOVERY SYSTEMS
Approximately 10% of all electricity used in industry is accounted for by compressed air systems. It is a thermodynamic fact that around 95% of this energy is converted to heat and is wasted to the atmosphere through dissipation by the motor and cooling system, with the majority lost via the oil cooler. Our heat recovery systems for air compressors, allow you to recycle the excess heat to your advantage. By re-directing the hot oil to a high efficiency oil to water heat exchanger, the heat can be transferred to water, raising the temperature to a required level for a multitude of applications.
We provide a factory fitted integrated system and have the ability to retrofit installed systems including all pipework and fittings. Either way, the low investment costs result in long-term cost benefits. The heat generated during compression is paid for as part of the process, then paid for again during removal by way of cooling fans. Instead of simply removing the heat, it can be used to generate hot water, heating systems and on application processes in other areas of the installation.
CompAir’s innovative system delivers the opportunity to save money, energy and help to protect the environment. This is how it works. The basic principle lies in the transferral of heat into a medium and then transporting it to where it can be utilised. In the case of a closed air-cooled compressor, the cooling air becomes quite hot. This can be diverted to an enclosed area via ducting for heating. If water was to be heated, the oil in the oil cooler is chosen as the transfer medium. This will provide approximately 72% of the overall power consumption for water heating.
