How HPC blowers deliver energy saving efficiency

Air blowers generally operate at a lower pressure ratio than air compressors, as they don’t have to compress the air to the same degree before use. However, with air compressor blowers still proving to be the biggest consumers of energy within many businesses, it would be a false economy to consider only the capital investment and not the ongoing running and blower maintenance cost. We take a look at how HPC blowers are more efficient than other market leaders and find out how choosing an HPC blower could save you money.

How does an HPC blower work?

There are two types of HPC air blower available, the KAESER rotary blower and the KAESER screw blower.

Rotary blower: the rotary HPC blower uses an isochoric process, meaning that as the air passes through the rotary blower’s flow chamber, it maintains a constant volume. Compression happens outside the blower block, and therefore the air mass takes place as part of the following process. This is known as adaptive compression and means that the level of pressure produced is equal to that required by the process it is employed for. Rotary air compressor blowers are best used in situations where the pressure is heavily fluctuating, or where there is a significant amount of idling.

Screw blower: the screw HPC blower uses an isentropic compression process; this means that the intake air maintains a constant level of entropy within the screw compression block using KAESAR’s unique SIGMA-B profile. With compression taking place within the block, once the volume of air reaches the block outlet it is then pushed out again under pressure. Screw air compressor blowers are ideal for use where there is a continual pressure demand for long periods.

How do HPC blowers save on energy consumption?

The HPC screw blower block design from KAESER is by far the most energy saving option; developed specifically for continual use applications where there is a constant air pressure demand, they use much less effort in achieving the same level of air compression; relatively speaking, they achieve the same air volume results as other air compressor blowers but use 35% less energy in doing so.

The HPC screw blower is also designed with reduced blower maintenance in mind, as well as an increased lifespan and improved durability. Because this air compressor blower is designed for high usage applications, high-tech bearings ensure longevity whilst the lack of need for ancillary equipment reduces both energy consumption and blower maintenance costs.

If you would like to save on energy costs, why not take a closer look at the HPC blowers available from Glaston?
