20% Hydro Savings with Atlas Copco VSD+ Compressor

 

Problem:

Coni-marble Manufacturing Inc. specializes in commercial and residential bathroom fixtures and countertop solutions. Their production facility relies heavily on compressed air within their manufacturing process. When Coni-marble needed to increase their efficiency, cut their production costs and reduce downtime they realized that their current compressed air system was experiencing significant pressure drops, inconsistent performance and they did not have a backup machine, in the event of device failure. These compounding issues were creating unnecessary and expensive inefficiencies in production.

Solution:

By installing a new variable speed drive air compressor, Coni-marble was able to lower their hydro consumption from 365 to 285 kwh per month with the Atlas Copco GA18VSD+FF energy efficient air compressor.

Compressor Engineering Group is known for our innovative spirit. We are constantly driven to provide high quality, state-of-the-art products, which improve our customers’ efficiencies from purchase to commissioning.

In addition to providing a seamless transition and minimizing potential downtime within Coni-marble production facility, they were able to secure a $2500 rebate through the SaveOnEnergy program saving Coni-marble both time and money.

VSD Compressor

No Capital Funds for a New VSD?

No Capital Funds for a new VSD?  Have you considered leasing?

Example: If a plant air demand is variable, like the one in this graph and this air demand is supplied by a 75 HP fixed speed, load/unload compressor.  The potential energy savings could be so significant that the money saved on hydro will cover the monthly lease payments on a new VSD compressor.  At the end of the lease, the compressor is paid for and the monthly hydro savings continue to help reduce overhead costs.

Contact CEG to see if a lease is right for you.

Save on Energy with a Quality Air Compressor

Today’s industries are highly competitive and there is an increasing demand to find ways to remain efficient and economical. When you have project deadlines looming and/or machines breaking down, what you need most is a reliable, high-performing air compressor to push you ahead.

Air CompressorA quality air compressor will help to automate and streamline production so that you can concentrate on what’s important—saving your company energy, money and time.

A quality air compressor such as Atlas Copco’s GA 7-37 VSD+ promises to reduce your energy consumption by 50% on average, while operating with utmost efficiency offering improved performance overall.

This machine includes technology that allows the motor to automatically adjust to match the compressed air supply to that which is being demanded. Along with the iPM (Permanent Magnet) motor, is what allows for the 50% average energy savings and a decreased lifecycle cost at an average of 37%.

When you choose high-quality machines and maintain them, you’re cleverly investing in your company’s future and safety.

Making sure your air compressor is properly maintained is another key way to save on energy. We have factory trained technicians who are ready to help repair or maintain your equipment 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Having an energy analysis done on your air compressor will help inform you of how your equipment is operating and what we can do to have it running at its best. Be it stationary or a portable air compressor, we service them all and have parts for virtually any brand.

We at Compressor Engineering Group are committed to saving you energy, money and time when it comes to your compressed air equipment. On November 30th, 2016 we’ll be attending a seminar hosted by London Hydro—The Power of Collaboration where we will be listening to leading knowledge on how to make a positive financial impact on your business and bottom line.
