Energy Efficient Food Grade Compressed Air From Kerr Compressor Engineers

Energy Efficiency in compressed air is often discussed in terms of the Compressor, and is generally overlooked when considering the Ancillary Equipment. However, with the Food & Drink Industry the quality of the air is a major consideration, and it is essential that this is met to the correct standard efficiently.

There are many options available in the market place for Filtration & Drying equipment. Kerr Compressor Engineers (EK) Ltd recommend the use of Parker Domnick Hunter ‘Evolution’ Filtration & Parker Hiross Antares Twin Technology Air Dryers.

The ‘Evolution’ style filtration is designed to minimise pressure drop in the air system whilst ensuring optimum filtration is achieved during the course of the elements life. Yearly changes of the element ensures the system operates efficiently at all times.

KerrCompressorJanuary2015Additionally, the ‘Oil Vapour Removal’ units are ideal for the complete removal of Oil Vapour to less than 0.003 mg/m3 which exceeds the guidelines as recommended by the BRC. Utilising Cartridges filled with Carbon as opposed to loose carbon, they are cleaner and easier to maintain and as such require less downtime to change.

However it is Compressed Air Drying equipment which holds the major key to Energy Efficiency for the Ancillary Equipment. Parker Hiross have recently introduced the Antares Twin Technology Dryer unit. This dryer is a combination of a Refrigerant & Desiccant Dryer contained within One Package.

As a result of its unique packaging and design, the desiccant dryer unit has a reduced operating cost compared with Heat-Less Desiccant Dryers. With a reduction of purge air requirements of more than 12% and only a small external heater, payback of less than Two Years is easily achieved in all cases.
