Energy Saving

Equipped with ALMiG for ISO 50001

Energy is becoming more and more expensive and influences the competitiveness of companies. In order to reduce costs, more and more companies are relying on energy-efficient systems. The international energy management standard ISO 50001, which was introduced in June 2011, is also playing an increasingly important role. Many companies - whether small, medium-sized or large - can be certified according to this standard. Many people are not aware that compressed air, which is the largest energy source in the industry after electricity, has a high potential for savings.
ALMiG has developed a special process to uncover possible energy savings in compressed air generation and consumption: The energy balancing system - EBS for short.
Up to 40 % energy saving potential is concealed in almost every compressed air station. In order to detect expensive weak points in your system and optimise your compressed air supply, we take a critical look at all components from the compressed air generator to the compressed air consumer.

Compressed air generation

Energy costs account for up to 90 % of the operating costs for compressed air generation.
Modern, speed-controlled energy-saving compressors save up to 25 % energy.

Controls

Intelligent controls monitor and optimise the overall compressed air station and help to reduce costs and increase operational reliability.

Compressed air treatment

Each application requires a special preparation:

  • Too much treatment = unnecessary energy and operating cost
  • Too little treatment = loss of quality or even loss of production

Heat recovery

Up to 94 % of the energy used to generate compressed air is converted into heat and can be used in a variety of ways, e.g. as heating or service water.

The "3-step plan" of ALMiG's energy balancing system (EBS system) solves your energy problems. This energy balancing system shows how your compressed air system can be operated with maximum energy efficiency and how power guzzlers can be eliminated.

The "3-step plan" of ALMiG's EBS system consists of three steps:

  • Measure
  • Analyze
  • Simulation

The benefits of measuring compressed air consumption with subsequent simulation are obvious:

  • The entire compressed air system becomes transparent.
  • Weak points are uncovered.
  • A large number of tabular and graphical representations support your decision-making.
  • Effects of changes in the compressed air station can be simulated.
  • Thus you can run through all scenarios and develop the optimal solution for your situation.

An individual consultation for the cost optimization of a compressed air station can only take place on the basis of previously obtained information and the simulation of future plant or compressed air overall concepts.
Reason enough for the ALMiG specialists to determine your current compressed air consumption with the help of an exact consumption measurement in order to work out an optimal system solution together with you.
Leaks in the compressed air system

The results of the EBS measurement can also be used to determine whether your compressed air system is leaking.
Did you know that the average leakage rate of a compressed air station is almost 30%? Leaks in the overall compressed air system, i.e. in the distribution line or at the various connection points to the consumer, represent a high cost factor. The leaks act like nozzles from which the air exits at an enormous speed.
Since the outflowing air is invisible, odourless and not a direct hazard, it is usually not treated with the same attention as, for example, a leak in a water pipe. The increasing volume flow requirement caused by leaks leads to higher energy costs in compressed air generation.
