  • Master control helps to save energy costs

Efficient production of clean compressed air is a prerequisite when it comes to PET bottle production. The company Kaeser Kompressoren, a leading manufacturer of compressed air stations for stretch-blow molding machines, will show the latest developments at the Brau Beviale in Nuremburg. In combination with a new compressed air management system, compressed air stations are now Industry 4.0-ready.

Dry-running rotary screw compressor with integrated rotation dryer

The DSG-2 dry-running rotary screw compressor with integrated i.HOC rotation dryer is amongst the highlights on show. The rotary screw compressor delivers efficient supply of application-tailored compressed air, whilst the patented Kaeser i.HOC rotation dryer uses 100% of the resulting compression heat to dry it. This full flow regeneration process is the key to ensuring consistent low pressure dew points at ambient temperatures as high as 45°C, without the need for electrical heating or additional cooling of the regeneration air.

For even higher pressures needs the company can provide the new DN C series which is available with power outputs from 22 to 45 kW and delivery volumes from 2.9 to 19.6 m³/min. They provide final pressures of up to 45 bar (from an initial pressure of 13 bar). With a new design and a footprint just half the size of predecessor models, DN C systems represent a combination of form and function.

Control helps to save energy costs

The Sigma Air Manager 2 (SAM 2) master control enables high-efficiency control of all compressed air station components. One of the main advantages of this system is that gathered performance data can be evaluated to support predictive maintenance, which, in turn, saves energy, improves efficiency and enables advanced energy management in compliance with ISO 50001.
