The energy consumed for the generation of compressed air is converted almost entirely to heat.
This is a high potential for savings since one compressed air station with a power requirement of 75 kW during 4000 operating hours, for example, will need approximately 300,000 kWh of power every year.
Use this energy in the form of:
By way of the example, below you can see an overview of the energy saving potential of the compressors depending on the respective installed rated outputs.
The heated cooling air is used to heat a room via a ductwork system. Temperature controlled valves achieve a regulated, adjustable room temperature. In winter the heat from the exhaust air is used entirely or partly for heating purposes. In the summer it is blown out into the air via an exhaust air channel.
Plate heat exchangers are used to produce hot water.The heating water runs through “plates” within a closed housing. The hot compressor oil flows between plates and housing and delivers its heating power to the hot water.
The heat recovery process is the same as for heating water. Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are used to prevent oil from penetrating the service water even if there are leaks.
All components required for heat recovery are installed in the compressor during the production process.
If the order is for a new compressor, it will be prepared for heat recovery, i.e.:
External modules for retrofitting previously installed compressors.
