Pump, fan and compressor control
Did you know:
1. A large part of the electricity produced in the world is used to transport or pressurize liquids and gases in machines such as fans, pumps and compressors?
2. The most effective way to optimize processes is to control the pressure, flow, speed, etc. Many systems are not designed to be energy efficient and function optimally from a technological point of view.
bitYes proposes solutions for variable speed control using frequency converters. So it is obtained a considerable energy saving and proper control of the technological process. In this way we replace the classical on/off control by using valves or through a bypass.
A 20% reduction of speed can bring savings of up to 50%, calculated according to the loading curve of the machine and the requirements of the technological process. Thus the investment in applications with frequency converters pays off in the resulted savings.
The variable control of the ventilation, pumping and compressors processes are met in sectors such as:
- Water: for filling, irrigation, distribution, treatment, etc.
- Oil and Gas: for extraction, transport, refining, liquefaction, etc.
- Buildings: for heating, ventilation, air conditioning etc.
- Industry: for compressed air, water cooling, exhaust etc.
When the requirement of flow or pressure in a circuit is large, pumps, fans or compressors are being used in parallel. In these cases the use of frequency converters will offer the opportunity to control alternatively or in parallel the hydraulic machines, thus reaching the optimum level of efficiency.
What do you gain from implementing it?
- Optimum consumption of energy, related to the requirements of the technological process
- Optimal control of the technological process; control pressure, flow or temperature in the system
- The technological process is improved and thus produce faster or more at the same time
- Reduce the mechanical and electrical wear and tear of the equipment through gradual starting
What do you miss from choosing not to implement?
- You will not be competitive in a growing market, because the costs with the electric, water and gas utilities are not optimized
- You will have high costs with the maintenance of the machinery, due to electrical and mechanical shocks in the installation
- The technological process will not produce to its full capacity
