Compressed air constitutes the most expensive energy source in production, and additionally has an average leakage rate of 25-35%. processControl raises significant optimization potentials with the help of artificial intelligence, meaning you save energy completely automated.
A superordinate, predictive control of the entire industrial compressed air process.
Keeping an eye on production plans and workload
processControl controls the entire process predictively: from generation and treatment through to distribution and consumption.
By adjusting compressed air supply and demand, processControl makes network pressure more flexible. Pressure setpoints are dynamically adapted to actual demand and no longer kept at a constant level.
Save more than 20% of energy
By avoiding peak load times, you achieve significant energy savings.
Less energy wastage due to leaks
Since the air is stored for as short a time as possible, energy losses due to leaks are reduced.
Low investment costs and a quick implementation ensure that the measure pays off in less than a year.
Transparency of the production process
Real-time monitoring provides you complete transparency over the compressed air process.
Effects of processControl:
Dynamic adjustment of network pressure
Maximization of the base load share
Avoidance of overloading of the compressors
Avoidance of idle times of the compressors
Optimization of network pressure setpoint (centralized/decentralized)
- Prevention of over- and undercompaction
- Predictive filling of compressed air storage tanks
- Avoidance of frequent compressor cycling (running time)
- Coordination of compressed air demand and supply
Add Intelligent Analytics Services:
Model-based leakage detection
Pressure sensors: e.g. by benchmarking pressure profile agains consumption
Compressors: e.g. by benchmarking load profile against consumption
Cutting losses such as e.g. replenishment of the grid during shutdown
Model-based anomaly detection
Over- and under-compaction
Early detection of clogged filters
Monitoring of overall system status: e.g. overload of preparation units
