Dunmurry Based Packaging Company installed new Hydrovane!

Feb 25, 2007 in Case Studies

A leading packaging company has installed our new HV 22RS Variable Speed compressor after several consultations from our technical team raising awareness about the potential to save electricity from their existing compressor installation. The existing installation was an old modulating vane compressor which utilizes up to 90% of full load kw. After analysising the amp readings from our data logging devices, we noticed that the compressor never dropped below 25amps. For a 22kw compressor, this indicates the potential for significant savings. The system was so inefficient that the excess heat generated was burning off any condensate so there was no requirements for an air dryer.

An application for grant aid worth £571 was also successful in funding the project and is now registered under Hydrovanes advanced warranty programme for 48,000hrs. The HV 22 RS with new air dryer was installed in July 2009.
