Sustainable compressed air generation is key to industry future

With a large percentage of Australian manufacturing, processing and engineering industries relying on compressed air to power their production and pressure tool lines, yesterday’s conventional air compressors simply use too much energy input to meet demand.

Compressed air operators need to look to new compressor technologies that can maintain or increase demand output while lowering the input energy costs. In most cases the savings can more than pay for the capital investment in new machinery over a relatively short time. Power consumption is a significant cost throughout the life of a compressor; therefore it is important to consider the life cycle cost of a compressed air system when evaluating productivity improvements.

The latest air compressors from Kaishan Australia, a member of the global Kaishan group, have improved the energy input/air power ouput ratios well in favour of industry sustainability for years to come.

PMV rotary screw compressors

Kaishan’s Permanent Magnet, Variable Frequency (PMV) technology combines integrated systemic optimisation of the compressor unit with an advanced permanent magnet motor, SKY airend and rapid response, variable speed drive. This results in the smaller, permanent magnet, synchronous torque motor needing far less energy input to drive a highly engineered, efficient compressor while generating greater output than equivalent conventional compressors.

Rare Earth Technology gives the permanent magnet motor better energy efficiency compared to conventional induction motors. PM synchronous torque motors provide faster acceleration and deceleration, a great advantage in compressor applications as they can rapidly vary output to match application demands.

The integral Variable Speed Control means the compressor only operates at the level of immediate demand, reducing both input energy needs, machine wear and tear and maintenance requirements. These advanced air compressors deliver efficiency and performance in a heavy-duty unit that ensures good durability and reliability. Innovative design and precision engineering integrates the latest compressed air technologies to achieve energy standards exceeding international expectations.

Advanced 2-stage rotary screw compressors

Kaishan 2-Stage Industrial Rotary Screw Air Compressors use the latest technology to provide the operating power for major industries around the world. With capacities from 18.5 to 400 kW, krsp 2-Stage air compressors are designed and engineered to provide maximum air output, while saving on input energy bills. Combined with variable speed control, savings of more than 50% over conventional compressors can be achieved.

Advanced Energy Saving Technology is also built into the company’s range of compact compressors for small industry and workshop applications including Tank Mounted Rotary Screw and Scroll ‘Orbital Technology’ models.
