Compressed Air System Audits
Undergoing an energy survey is often the first step to improving the energy efficiency of your compressed air system. Direct Air utilise the most advanced energy surveying equipment from EnergAir to audit all areas including generation, treatment, distribution and process usage.
Our energy costs are constantly increasing, which means the need to control the cost of your systems compressed air is also becoming increasingly important. Direct Air's engineers can install state of the art logging equipment which allows us to compile a detailed survey of your compressed air systems condition with particular reference to energy and the operating efficiency of the system.
EnergAir Compressor Management Systems
Direct Air & Pipework can provide comprehensive advice on the market leading compressor control package manufactured by EnergAir.
Direct Air can provide a compressed air survey of your existing system using EnergAir's latest SCADAR monitoring system and then provide a detailed report recommendations to highlight where energy savings can be made.
Metacentre Compressor Control Solutions
Harness individual air compressor pressure set-points & controls target system pressure within fine limits to reduce generating costs, and ensures that the most efficient compressors (irrespective of manufacturer or type) are employed in the most efficient combination to suit a fluctuating air demand pattern. The EnergAir management systems are capable of controling up to 24 air compressors in single or multiple compressor locations. Pressure imbalance between compressor locations can easily be overcome using the unique operating software provided with EnergAir Management Controllers.
Nearly all of the energy that is used to power an air compressor gets coverted to heat. With 94% of this heat available for heat recovery Direct Air can provide a fully costed solution to harness this heat source in the most efficient way.
Recovery of this waste heat generated by your compressor is effectively free after the initial investment with very quick payback periods often seen.
The types of sites and possible applications include:
- Water Heating
- Space Heating
- Process Heating and Drying
- Boiler Houses for Feed Water or Combustion Air
- Compressed Air Plant Using Heat to Regenerate Desiccant Dryers
Following a full analysis of your systems energy and air usage, Direct Air will forward a report on potential ways to generate energy savings via various methods dependant upon your site's specific needs.
