By undergoing an audit which evaluates energy consumption within all areas of the compressed air system from generation, treatment to distribution and process usage, the user can identify where energy savings can be made. This may be something simple such as repairing air leaks within the airline pipework system to implementing a low carbon technology such as a frequency controlled screw compressor to more energy-efficiently meet fluctuations in compressed air demand.
The Dinnissen Process Technology XS4 Sifting Concept has been designed for the effective and reliable monitoring of powdered substances for contamination such as residual packaging materials, metal particles, stones, grains and chunks. Even large quantities of powders can be monitored quickly and reliably.
The CVA electric actuator from Rotork is claimed will hold the setpoint, feature no deviation and will respond quickly to a change. Controlled by a 4–20 mA signal, the CVA is suitable for the direct-drive actuation of linear or quarter-turn control valves. The CVA demonstrates accurate control valve automation, combined with advanced, non-intrusive calibration, valve diagnostics and the simplicity, user-friendliness and economy of electric operation. Mechanical features include the ‘double-sealed’ enclosure, whereby internal electrical components are permanently protected from the effects of the operating environment.
Champion Compressors has extended its variable speed drive (VSD) compressor family — the V-Series — with the addition of two models: the CSE37V and CSE45V. Champion’s V-Series delivers high levels of environmental performance and provides industry with increased access to energy-efficient compressed-air solutions.
Bonfiglioli has commissioned a complete assembly and testing line dedicated to the modular designed HDP parallel shaft and HDO bevel helicals which have been engineered for high torque per dollar, high casing strength, long-life bearing technology and quieter, trouble-free operation.
