Energy Efficient System for Norbord – Inverness Mill
Installation of compressed air system in Mill
Kerr compressors Solution
The Kaeser DSD 238 Rotary Screw compressor is a high performance and high efficiency compressor for industrial compressed air stations.
These high performance systems help save energy in various ways:
- Flow-optimised SIGMA PROFILE rotors improve specific power.
- The use of IE3 drive motors maximises energy efficiency (these motors will become mandatory in the EU from the 1st of January 2015).
- Kaeser’s 1:1 drive design eliminates the transmission losses associated with gear or V-belt driven systems, as the motor directly drives the airend.
- The SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller optimises performance by using specially developed control algorithms.
The compressed air system was installed to customer specification and on schedule.
