MONITORING COMPRESSOR PERFORMANCE

MONITORING COMPRESSOR PERFORMANCE

The VPFlowTerminal enables you to measure flow, pressure, temperature with one single VPFlowScope. In addition, the VPFlowTerminal offers 4 analog input channels, which can be used for logging of any 4..20 mA based sensor. In this example, we will show you how to use the VPFlowTerminal to monitor compressor performance. Please note that this is not intended as an official compressor test, but you can use the data to track changes in performance, or to create a “practical” efficiency curve of the compressor when installed in the field. It is a great tool to get more insight in the real behavior of your system.

CALCULATING % LEAKAGES IN YOUR PLANT

Whereas it poses a great challenge to estimate the sum of all leakages at one point of time in a plant, it is a simple calculation which gives one an excellent ball park figure as to how much 'trouble' the compressed air systems is in. To calculate leakage in a plant simply pressurize the compressor when the plant is shut down and no machines or equipments are operating.

Leaks are a significant source of wasted energy in a compressed air system, often wasting as much as 20-30% of the compressor’s output. Compressed air leaks can also contribute to problems with system operations, including:

EFFECTIVE ENERGY MEASUREMENT

EFFECTIVE ENERGY MEASUREMENT

The total investment year on year on a compressed air system supply is highly dependent upon the periodic maintenance done on the system. A running plant has many avenues to spend from their maintenance budget annually to see where they can save on breakdowns, expensive repairs and other production related losses connected to these issues.
