Companies are constantly looking for strategies and methods to increase and improve efficiency at an operational level with particular reference to what is necessary to carry out production processes and everything that feeds them. Especially when resources are limited, in fact, the prevailing objective is to maximize them and make them perform as much as possible, with the compatible use of investments, technologies, time and people.
Energy efficiency in the compressed air sector involves the examination and analysis of all the components of a typical system which examines all aspects starting from the design phase. RIEM ITALY, with its own internal engineering section, offers and collaborates with the interested company in the elaboration and implementation of projects for new compressed air systems, defining the most energetically performing BRANDS of the various components of the system in question and of projects efficiency improvement of existing plants.
The components of the systems are identified as follows: A) Compressors (piston, screw or centrifugal, lubricated or oil-free, with on-off or variable frequency regulation B) Compressed air treatment with suitably sized dryers and with a dew point compatible with the requirement of the process to which the air is destined C) Sizing of the distribution lines according to the lengths, the containment of the pressure drops, and the quantity of air to be distributed. For existing plants, where the updating and optimization of energy consumption is required, instrumental surveys are carried out for a precise determination of the compressed air consumption required by the processes for the verification and for a possible updating of the compressed air supply units.
Upgrade that may require less compressed air with a correspondingly lower power usage than what was being used at that date. In these conditions, the opportunity of an investment for the adaptation of the central air with the replacement of one or more compressors is evaluated. Upon the occurrence of this condition, RIEM ITALY has the possibility of proposing the installation of new or used compressors and accessories with zero hours overhaul and therefore guaranteed. The latter condition is increasingly appreciated because it contains the investment with the same energy efficiency and does not affect the possibility of accessing the incentives provided by the legislation relating to white certificates.
