A tier-one automotive supplier based in Kentucky was operating multiple air compressors that were 15 years old or more. In an effort to increase reliability, efficiency and plant productivity, the supplier wanted to upgrade the compressed air units one at a time until all of the equipment was replaced.
The automotive supplier contacted the experts at Air Technologies® to discuss the best steps to move forward in beginning the replacement process. Air Technologies® recommended the installation of three new Atlas Copco 300 HP variable speed drive air compressors and the addition of the ManagAIR® control and monitoring. ManagAIR® is a state-of-the-art computerized system that allows customers to monitor and control their compressed air system on a continuous basis.
The automotive supplier is looking forward to replacing the outdated compressed air units with a new, energy-efficient, high-performance compressed air system. Annual energy savings are estimated to be 15%, amounting to $24,000 annually.
