Compressed Air Auditing - Reduce Your Energy Costs - has become a vital tool for any plant engineer who wants to reduce compressor air wastage and energy consumption.
Artic Driers has the biggest compressed air audit equipment capability in Southern Africa and has invested heavily in Air Audit Equipment over recent years. All equipment used is calibrated on a regular basis and our technician is certified by “SAEE” as a “Certified Energy Auditor”
With the latest twelve channel DS500 and three DS300 six channel data loggers we have the resources to provide data in multi axis graphs as well as Excel format to clients on multiple compressor houses simultaneously. REPORTS - All our reports contain the graphs as well as a concise report / overview.
We are able to log data and provide graphics on the following;
- Air Flow
- Air flow cumulative
- Air Pressure
- Air differential pressure
- Air flow velocity
- Air temperature
- Air dew point and R.H.
- Power in amps & kWhrs
- Oil Carry Over Monitoring
- CO and CO² SO² content
Air & vacuum audits are invaluable in assisting new equipment selections prior to a new purchase or indentifying problem areas. Air audits can be undertaken on high pressure lines as high as 340 bar as well as vacuum systems, the only exception being wet vacuum lines. Dew points as high a +50 and as low as -70°C are achievable
ULTRASONIC LEAK DETECTION - With a variety of tools we are can establish leaks in most plants to a high degree of accuracy enabling a measurable corrective action plan to be implemented.
The cost incurred in using our services is very quickly recouped in power savings and reductions in wastage.
Permanent Instrumentation Packages. For larger systems, a permanent instrumentation package can be installed to provided a monitoring system that tracks the air systems flow and pressure performance 24/7. Set alarm points can be set using user friendly software. The cost of a compressed air audit is cheap when compared to the cost of compressed air wastage and sub-standard compressed air treatment. The ROI period will be counted in days not months!
