A Kaeser Full Service Plan ensures maximum reliability, availability, efficiency and value retention throughout a compressed air system's entire service life.
Kaeser Compressors has been serving New Zealand and the Pacific region since 1990.
In this blog post we look at what is involved in a compressed air audit, what the advantages are, and how an audit can greatly assist you in developing a tailored, reliable and efficient compressed air system.
No two compressor stations ever run and operate the same. It is therefore vital that when you are looking to upgrade, replace or extend an existing one, that you fully understand your sites requirements and the systems current usage profile. Why? Only then can new compressed air equipment be correctly selected and sized in order to achieve an efficient and reliable solution that optimally meets your unique requirements. The most comprehensive way to achieve this is by undergoing a compressed air audit. A comprehensive audit would include the following 3 key steps;
It is vital to first create a precise requirement profile for each of your fields of application. This should involve gathering all the necessary production parameters and conditions including:
The next step would be to generate a current air usage profile. The most accurate way to do this is by having an ISO 11011 compliant audit completed - such as the Air Demand Analysis (ADA) service from Kaeser. Here measuring equipment is installed for a set period of time and continuously records the airflow by measuring the pressure differential. The information is stored in a data logger. Once retrieved, the latest technology allows precise, computer-aided evaluations of the data, to generate precise consumption profiles of your system. In other words it determines what your actual air demand is throughout all operating sectors and at different loads.
The advantages of undergoing an air demand analysis are threefold:
The data retrieved from the air demand analysis is evaluated using computer-aided technology. This not only generates a precise consumption profile of your existing compressed air system, but it can then be further utilised to compare several possible concepts in order to achieve the best possible efficiency.
Sophisticated evaluation systems, such as the KESS – Kaeser Energy Saving System, also take into account the performance of the compressed air station during its overall service life. This means that any weak points in partial load operation can be detected in advance and remedied. Furthermore energy efficiency is calculated by precisely comparing power consumption with the delivery of compressed air. The most economical solution is then selected from several possible concepts.
Utilising such tools as the ADA and KESS from Kaeser, ensures that when it comes to developing your new compressed air system it is planned, designed and tailored to meet all of your compressed air requirements.
By fully understanding your sites requirements and current air usage profile, a tailored compressed air system can be designed – including correctly selecting and sizing all components - that meets your unique requirements for optimum efficiency and reliability, keeping your air costs to an absolute minimum.
