According to the British Compressed Air Society; "Electrically driven compressors are a major user of energy, accounting for around 10% of electricity costs in the industrial sector".
This could be over 10,000 GWHr of electricity, in today's terms this equates to almost £1 billion per year.
mb air systems ltd, with over 40 years of expertise, specialise in compressed air systems and all associated engineering services.
To ensure that we can meet the needs of industry and be confident in establishing energy saving and operational opportunities, we regularly participate in approved training schemes from equipment manufacturers, industry bodies and external training providers.
mb air systems have demonstrated compliance with, and sound management of, current basic health and safety legislation through accreditation within the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and the Achilles Verify assessment and audit process. Membership of British Safety Council and the British Compressed Air Society ensure mb air systems keep up to date with all current legislation, industry guidance and best practice
Alongside our experience and expertise, mb air systems ltd has invested heavily in recent times to ensure that we have the most comprehensive and up to date methods to measure energy, air consumption, system performance and viability.
Our approach is tailored to suit each customers site.
|We utilise a data logger to measure the power consumed by each compressor, while at the same time measuring the system pressure downstream.
This helps to analyse the load or demand profile of your system. With this information, we can assess, advise and recommend improvements to the system control strategy
|Your pipework system is the transmission that carries the air to your equipment.
More often than not, poor system design or the addition of extra air lines can cause pressure drops, restrictive flow and can corrode over time. This makes the system less efficient and can mean your compressor works harder. We can map out your current system, noting areas for improvment, identify savings and advise on any health and safety implications.
|Leaks can be one of the biggest costs to a systems efficiency.
We utilise ultrasonic leak detector to identify the source of leaks in your system.
The resulting report shows the location, estimated size and cost of the leaks.
We can provide costs for repairing each issue and reducing wasted energy
|As compressors age, their output can decline.
We can provide reporting based on a “non intrusive” flow meter that can accurately determine how much output you are actually getting from your system, without the need for large capital expense or down time to install.
|The heat profile of a compressors components can be a tell tale sign of a compressors condition.
If certain components wear, they can produce excess heat, not perform their function as efficient and lead to the breakdown of other component parts in the system.
We use a specialised thermal imaging camera to display and report this.
|Control strategy can be the difference between an efficient system and a wasteful one.
Our aim is to turn compressors off where possible and match the systems output to your demand.
Utilising pressure profiles and system isolation is key to optimising system efficiency.
|We can implement remote monitoring solutions to ensure that you can access your compressors information from anywhere, through a pc, tablet or mobile phone with an internet connection.
This allows tracking and recording, as well as the production of reports when you need them.
|SERVICE||We have invested in our service capabilities to allow us to ensure that your system is running as it should and as efficiently as possible. As part of our regular servicing agreements, we provide vibration monitoring and oil analysis to identify problems before they arise and allow remedial action to take place before equipment breaks down.|
|ESOS||By December 2015, all businesses which have more than 250 employees or a turnover exceeding €50m, must conduct a mandatory assessment and report on their energy usage.
We can provide a detailed breakdown of costs associated with your compressed air system to aid with the ESOS procedure.
