ASD – Even more efficient
KAESER KOMPRESSOREN pushes the boundaries of compressed air efficiency once again with its latest generation of ASD (ASD.4) series rotary screw compressors. Not only do these optimised ASD compressors deliver more compressed air for less energy, but they also combine ease of use and maintenance with exceptional versatility and environmentally responsible design.
ASD – Multiple savings
The newly refined ASD systems save energy in multiple ways: the compressor airends feature further refined SIGMA PROFILE rotors and are controlled and monitored via the industrial-PC-based SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller. This advanced controller matches compressed air delivery to actual demand and uses dynamic control to keep costly idling time to an absolute minimum
Variable speed with reluctance motor
The new synchronous reluctance motor combines the advantages of asynchronous and synchronous motors in one drive system. The motor contains no aluminium, copper or expensive rare earth magnets, which makes the drive durable and service-friendly. In addition, the functional principle keeps heat losses in the motor to a minimum, resulting in significantly lower bearing temperatures. This ensures significantly extended bearing and motor service life. In conjunction with the perfectly matched frequency converter, the synchronous reluctance motor also delivers superior performance compared to an asynchronous motor when it comes to losses, especially in the partial load range.
ASD series rotary screw compressors are the perfect partners for high-efficiency industrial compressed air stations. The internal SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller offers various communication channels, which allows seamless communication with advanced master controllers, such as KAESER’s SIGMA AIR MANAGER, and in-house centralised control systems. This enables simple setup and achieves unprecedented levels of efficiency. Electronic Thermo Management (ETM) Powered via an electric motor, the sensor-controlled temperature control valve integrated into the cooling circuit is the heart of the innovative
Electronic Thermo Management
(ETM) system. The new SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller monitors intake and compressor temperature in order to prevent condensate formation, even with differing air humidity conditions. The ETM dynamically controls fluid temperature – low fluid temperature enhances energy efficiency. This system also enables end users to better adapt heat recovery systems to suit their specific needs.
Why choose heat recovery?
The question should in fact be: Why not? Amazingly, up to 100 % of the (electrical) energy input to a compressor is converted into heat. Up to 96 % of this energy can be recovered and reused for heating purposes. This not only reduces primary energy consumption, but also improves the applicable company’s total energy balance.
