TAIPEI, Taiwan, Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With the support of its energy saving team, the Philippines manufacturer FS-Curtis is successfully saving the electricity cost up to 24.4% by changing the piping system, and using the FS-Curtis Nx series high efficiency air compressors and interlock controllers.
Industrial machineries driven by motors are the most power-consuming equipment in the industry, and air compressors account for one of the biggest shares of the national electricity consumption. Most people don't know the energy saving can go up to 35% from the air compressor.
There are several ways to save the energy from the compressed air system:
- Do right loading management of air compressors
- Buy VSD compressors
- Use high efficiency compressors
- Install Multi Units Energy Saving Interlock Systems
- Through leakage detection of pipelines or devices
To do the right loading management, one should conduct a compressed air system survey first to find out energy usage baseline, and then define variable and fixed demand units separately. For the air usage under the baseline, one should use fixed speed air compressor to keep the machine running 24 hours and use the variable speed air compressor to adjust the compressed air usage in order to avoid energy waste on the fixed speed air compressor. The high efficiency air compressor with interlock system can connect multi- and different brand compressors. With automatic loading and unloading control, the interlock controller can adjust the running time from different air compressors to make the running hours even.
According to the research from FS-Curtis, the new air compressors can save the energy up to 22% more compared with the 15-year-old air compressors. Philippines is one of the countries where electricity cost is the highest. FS-Curtis believes the manufacturers in Philippines can save the energy, save the pocket and protect the earth by using FS-Curtis high efficiency air compressors.
FS-Curtis, a brand of Fusheng group, has been focusing on air compressor manufacturing for more than 160 years. The newest Nx series air compressors equipped with IE3 motor are developed for energy saving by FS-Curtis. Other than the Nx series single stage air compressors, FS-Curtis also has two stage air compressors which are 15% more efficient than the single stage air compressors.
These years, global warming has detonated a global energy saving boom. In the 2015 Paris accord, 196 countries, including Canada, agreed to set national targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions en route to preventing the planet from warming up more than two degrees Celsius on average compared with pre-industrial levels. As a member of the global enterprises, FS-Cutis established an energy saving team in 2015 to assist the manufacturers reducing the energy usage and also saving the world. Nowadays, FS-Curtis has 43 ISO50001 certificated energy management system auditors and chief auditors to consult for the customers' energy saving requirements.
As a pioneer of the energy saving air compressor manufacturers, FS-Curtis set up a booth in the 24th Joint Meeting of Chinese-Philippine & Philippine-Chinese Business Councils and Green Industry Exhibition during December 6-9. The event was held in the Mayuree Ballroom at Dusit Thani Hotel and invited the experts from both Philippines and Taiwan to deliver speeches, shared experiences and exchanged views on such topics as "Green Energy / Energy Saving Industry", "ICTs and E-Commerce Industries", "Agriculture and Food Industry" and "Finance". During this period, Taiwan and the Philippines also signed a new bilateral investment agreement (BIA) on Dec. 7.
