Compressors with VSD -Veriable Speed Drive
Over 70% of expenditure on air compression costs are expenses for electricity
By VSD technology compressor Efficiency can reach savings up to 35% of electricity consumption.
These findings support to keep focus on electricity costs to reach significant savings.
You can reduce electricity costs by several ways.
The important and significant is compressors command.
Atlas Copco offers compressors with variable speed control VSD allow to save up to 35% of energy costs.
Example: one of the major food plants in Israel workes wiht 2 compressors
|Compressor||Screw 50 hp||Screw 75 hp|
|Compression work hours||15.7||69.4|
|Idling work hours||36.2||49.3|
|Off mode work hours||116||49.3|
|Total weekly energy (kWh)||1635||6377|
|Total energy consumption of 2 compressors (kWh)||8012|
After adding GA75 VSD compressor
GA75 compressor of Atlas Copco VSD leading when old compressors are used as a backup
|Compressor||Screw 50hp||Screw 75 hp||GA70 VSD|
|Compression work hours||0||0||154.5|
|Idling work hours||0||0||0|
|Off mode work hours||168||168||13.4|
|Total weekly energy (kWh)||5098|
|Total energy consumption of 2 compressors (kWh)||5098|
Total annual savings 58,280 NIS
