To produce compressed air, the most used energy source is undoubtedly electricity which, of course, has a cost. The topic we want to analyze in this article is: how can we reduce the cost of electricity for the production of large quantities of air?
Let’s start by saying that reducing energy costs is absolutely possible as long as some basic rules are followed. For example, when a system consisting of air compressors is put into operation, it is good practice to consider all the long-term requirements: industries that base their operation on air compressors have different needs over time and an attempt to foresee the budget to be allocated in the long term protects us from nasty surprises. Planning can therefore already be considered a great way to save money.
Another piece of advice we can give is that of energy optimization: the need for high performance and quality is not necessarily at odds with energy efficiency. Therefore, we are always looking for new technological solutions whether they are for a specific economic need at the moment or for long-term savings. The meaning of this consideration is: we should not skimp on investments that allow us to improve the efficiency of our plants. For example, a component on which we must not “save” is the regulation system of a compressor. In this sense, the advice is to couple the compressor’s internal regulation system to equipment for control shared with other compressors; this will help make the economy of the entire plant more efficient.
Adjusting the speed of the air compressor precisely is an excellent solution for energy saving, so we need to equip ourselves with reliable machinery that can give us the right speed, at the right time.
To make the air compressors less expensive, it is also possible to reduce the pressure, perhaps in certain time slots where “high” speed is not required.
Riem Italy, a leading company in the air compressor sector, uses sophisticated instrumentation to process the compressor data, thus guaranteeing the development of an energy-efficient system.
