Sustainable Compressed Air Generation is Key to Industry Future

  • by

With a large percentage of Australian manufacturing, processing and engineering industries relying on compressed air to power their production and pressure tool lines, yesterday’s conventional air compressors simply use too much energy input to meet demand.

Compressed air operators need to look to new compressor technologies that can maintain or increase demand output whilst lowering the input energy costs. In most cases the savings can more than pay for the capital investment in new machinery over a relatively short time. Power consumption is a significant cost throughout the life of a compressor, therefore it is important to consider the life cycle cost of a compressed air system when evaluating productivity improvements.

Kaishan Australia, as a member of the global Kaishan group are at the leading edge of the latest air compressor technologies that have revolutionised the energy input/air power ouput ratios well in favour of industry sustainability for years to come.


The newest world class initiative is Kaishan’s Permanent Magnet, Variable Frequency (PMV) technology that combines integrated systemic optimization of the compressor unit with an advanced permanent magnet motor, SKY airend and rapid response, variable speed drive. This results in the smaller, permanent magnet, synchronous torque motor needing far less energy input to drive a highly engineered, efficient compressor whilst generating greater output than equivalent conventional compressors.

Rare Earth Technology gives the permanent magnet motor superior energy efficiency compared to conventional induction motors. PM synchronous torque motors provide faster acceleration and deceleration, a great advantage in compressor applications as they can rapidly vary output to match application demands.

Energy efficient over a wide speed range

Variable speed in constant and changing torque requirements

Lower routine and long term maintenance

The integral variable speed control means the compressor only operates at the level of immediate demand, reducing both input energy needs, machine wear and tear and maintenance requirements. These highly advanced air compressors deliver world class efficiency and performance in a heavy duty unit that ensures superior durability and reliability. Precision engineering utilises the latest compressed air technologies to achieve energy standards exceeding international expectations.

Advanced Energy Saving Technology is also built into the company’s range of compact compressors for small industry and workshop applications including Tank Mounted Rotary Screw and Scroll ‘Orbital Technology’ models.
