DOES YOUR AIR COMPRESSOR IDEALLY MATCH THE APPLICATION?

  • by

Before you contemplate the acquisition of a new air compressor, take the time to fully analyse your current and future application needs. ‘One type or size fits all’ definitely does not apply to the selection of a compressor to meet the exacting demands of any given application. Most major compressor suppliers can assist in the assessment and recommendation of the right compressor and system to match your needs.

In workshop and smaller, specialised applications, the ‘Piston type’ reciprocating  clunker can be replaced with smooth and quiet running orbital or rotary screw models that are far more energy efficient and available in a wide range of  kilowatt capacities. These tank-mounted, integrated compressed air delivery systems offer far more control and far less maintenance requirements than outdated piston compressors. Even at this lower end of air demand, it is advisable to assess the functionality and output required by your application to ideally match your needs. Making the correct choice will ensure you install a compressor that fully caters to your needs immediately and well into the future whilst minimising your energy bills over the life of the machine.

In larger industrial applications, the choice of compressor, system configuration and in-line components is even more critical as demand levels are far more diversified. With the capital cost of the equipment and increasing energy costs of running the compressor, matching the equipment to the application needs can save thousands of dollars and engender a short-term payback period based on pre-calculated savings prior to making the compressor purchase decision.

Major compressor supply companies with vast experience around the world in a wide variety of specialised applications, such as Kaishan Compressors Australia, can conduct detailed assessments of type, size and system configuration to provide detailed recommendations for replacement or new installations.

Rotary screw, single or two stage, permanent magnet motors, fixed or variable speed control, oil free, high pressure, low pressure, sealed cabinet, corrosion resistance, mobile, receiver type and capacity, filter types, aftercoolers, air dryers, reticulation system and configuration etc; it’s a lot to take in and specify to create the ideal solution for any application. So call in the experts to ensure the right choices that will create a compressed air system perfectly matched to your current and projected needs and a system that utilises the best technology to ensure cost saving energy efficiency over the life of the compressor.

Compressor types

  1. ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSORS

A direct drive, energy efficient range of rotary screw compressors for multiple industrial applications offering variable speed drive, from 18.5 to 400kW.

  • TWO STAGE ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSORS

All the benefits of single stage with significantly  higher efficiency gains and energy saving performance. With added variable speed drive, these compressors can return more than 50% savings over conventional machines. 37 to 400kW

  • PERMANENT MAGNET VARIABLE FREQUENCY COMPRESSORS

Systemic optimisation of the airend with advanced permanent magnet drive motor and integrated variable speed drive technology provided greater air output for far less energy input. 15 to 250kW.

  • OIL FREE (AIR COOLED) ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSORS

Zero class oil free for use in industries where air quality is paramount for the quality and the production processes including food processing and packaging, medical and scientific applications. Totally integrated function control. 90-200kW

  • LOW PRESSURE ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSORS

These 3bar, low pressure compressors are specifically designed and made for textile, cement, flue gas, desulfurization and pneumatic conveyance and similar applications. Delivers high efficiency performance with low energy consumption costs. 55-250kW.

  • COMPACT, TANK MOUNTED, PLUG IN COMPRESSORS

Superseding old ‘Piston Type’ reciprocating technology, these fully integrated compressed air systems utilise advanced rotary screw or Scroll orbital technology to deliver quiet, efficient operation for modern workshops and specialised applications. 4.5-15kW

  • CUSTOM DESIGNED AND BUILT

Where highly specialised applications require, compressor suppliers such as Kaishan Compressors Australia provide custom designed adaptions or project specific compressors to meet the needs of harsh environments and critical processes such as marine and mining operations.

SYSTEM DESIGN AND INSTALLATION

No matter which compressor type matches your application, the design and configuration of the delivery system is critical to the efficiency and running costs. From where the compressor is located in your plant to the reticulation system and in-line components including receivers, filters, dryers, separators and coolers etc, Kaishan’s global experience, products and knowhow can greatly assist from the application assessment stage to full system design and installation.

CONTINUED COMPRESSOR EFFICIENCY

Regular checks and servicing of the compressor and system ensure maximum operating efficiency, minimal down time and long product life will be maintained. Kaishan deploy a fleet of trained and experienced compressed air technicians to maintain Kaishan and all other makes and models of compressors all around Australia.
