Why use variable speed compressors from HPC KAESER?

For businesses with fluctuating compressed air demands, a variable speed drive compressor can provide substantial savings on energy costs. As HPC KAESER distributors for the North West of England, Glaston Compressor Services has an extensive stock of KAESER variable speed drive compressors to suit a variety of budgets and process requirements. Here, we examine the argument for using a KAESER variable speed air compressor over a more traditional fixed-speed model.

What is a variable speed compressor?

Variable speed compressors automatically adjust their motor speed to match changes in air demand. This is achieved through variable speed drive technology, which is used to control the speed of compressed air flowing from the compressor unit. While not the cheapest method for generating compressed air, a variable speed drive compressor can be worth the extra cost by saving on energy costs for accommodating oscillating air demand.

Variable speed compressors from HPC KAESER

Part of HPC KAESER’s range of rotary screw compressors, KAESER variable speed drive compressors provide businesses with a reliable compressor unit that offers unmatched flexibility for producing compressed air. Capable of superior part-load performance, KAESER’s space-saving and maintenance-free VSD compressor boast free air delivery of up to 54 m³/min; more than enough for processes requiring mass volumes of compressed air.

If your process has peak load demands that often vary, you will find that investing in an HPC KAESER VSD compressor can quickly pay for itself. This is largely thanks to a wide control range that can precisely match system performance to air demand. KAESER variable speed compressors are also air-cooled (60% cheaper than using a water-cooled system), thanks to an effective built-in cooling system that uses an innovative radial fan to draw in cool ambient air.
