Energy analysis – consumption measurement – leakage calculation at compressed air systems

If we talk about operational costs of compressed air plants we are actually talking about the energy costs as they make up about 70 to 80 % of the total costs of a compressed air plant.

Depending on the size of the plant this means considerable operating costs. Even in smaller plants this may quickly add up to 10,000 to 20,000 € per year. This is an amount which can be considerably reduced – even in the case of well operated and maintained plants.

Does this also apply to your compressed air plant? Which actual costs per generated m³ air do you actually have? Which energy is gained due to the waste heat recovery? What is the total performance balance of your plant? How high are the differencial pressures of single filters, how high is the humidity (pressure dew point), how much compressed air is used? …

By means of the new multifunction measuring instrument DS 500 mobile and the suitable sensors and meters all these questions can be answered easily. For example by means of a long-term measurement over 7 days, data recording and evaluation at the PC.

By means of the multifunction measuring instrument DS 500 mobile for the first time all measuring data of a compressor station can be recorded, indicated and evaluated.

At 12 freely assignable sensor inputs all CS Instruments sensors can be connected as well as any optional third-party sensors and meters with the following signal outputs:

4 – 20 mA, 0-20 mA | 0-1 V / 0-10 V / 0-30 V | Pt 100 (2- or 3-wire), Pt 1000 (2- or 3-wire), KTY | pulse outputs (e.g. of gas meters) frequency output | Modbus protocol
