Industrial air compressors are known for their substantial electricity consumption, often ranking among the top energy consumers in industrial facilities, accounting for up to a third of total energy usage.
To optimize energy management in such settings, flow monitoring plays a crucial role. It helps determine the most efficient number of compressor units required for ongoing operations. This involves assessing excessive air consumption and analyzing compressed air usage patterns throughout the day. Enhanced and quicker pressure control mechanisms enable the maintenance of lower average system pressure without compromising performance, eliminating the need for maintaining higher pressures just to meet minimum requirements. This results in reduced energy consumption, minimized pressure fluctuations, a narrower control range, and improved overall energy efficiency. The stabilized power variations also prevent adverse impacts on production quality control.
