THE FUTURE OF COMPRESSED AIR MONITORING, AIR QUALITY MEASUREMENT AND CONSUMPTION MONITORING
It has been long understood that you cannot manage what you do not measure and this remains true to this day. The incredible amount of data being gathered across the world is changing every aspect of life. Around 40% of this data comes directly from sensors and with smart factories, industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) expected to connect an extra 21 million new devices to the internet by 2021, data analysis and management is becoming more important. It’s only once insights from the data gathered are implemented that true change takes place. The challenge for most engineering and maintenance teams is to sort out the massive amount of data and turn it into something meaningful. Airtec’s knowledge and experience, coupled with it’s international panel of experts will help you optimize and improve the efficiency of your projects.
Airtec offers useful compressed air master controls capable of putting control of your compressed air system directly in your hands. Compressed air is an incredibly valuable resource that, when used efficiently, can improve the whole of your operations, boosting productivity while saving money, so keeping a tight rein on your compressed air resources holds tremendous benefit. Take a look at our compressed air control and monitoring systems and please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.
Compressor Master Controls We Use
Plant safety, constant product quality, process optimization, environmental protection and energy conservation are some of the reasons why flow measurement is becoming increasingly important in industrial instrumentation. In the modern factory instrumentation needs to provide interfaces to factory automation systems. Airtec flowmeters not only support the traditional 4-20 mA outputs and pulse outputs, but also fieldbus interface for HART, Modbus and M-Bus. Since the meters are based on a modular design other fieldbus can be easily adopted.
The measurement of pressure and pressure dew point in compressed air systems or gas distribution networks has become more important recently. Manufacturers world wide are getting aware of negative effects of having too much moisture in the air. But pressure and pressure dew point measurement is not only restricted to applications in air / gas drying. There are many more processes in industry where a well monitored pressure and pressure dew point is crucial for the overall process and the quality of the products.
In times where energy conservation is a top priority for all progressive enterprises, the measurement of flow rates and consumption is becoming more and more important. However, measurement is just one step forward. In order to have a complete picture of the gas and compressed air consumption in a factory a permanent monitoring, graphical/statistical analyzes and convenient reporting is required.
The quality of compressed air is determined by the maximum particle size and particle counts, pressure dew point, and maximum oil content allowed. The details are defined in the international standard ISO 8573-1. Various industries such as pharmaceutical and food and beverage industries require high quality compressed air as it can directly affect quality and safety. This requires regular measurements of compressed air quality to avoid contaminants in products and risks for health of humans. Airtec offers a range of portable and stationary air quality measuring equipment including dew point measurements, particle counters and oil vapor measurement.
SUTO provides a calibration service for all its sensors as well as on-site testing. Please contact our service for inquiries. Dew point and flow calibration service is performed in the SUTO Test & Calibration Labs in Germany and China (Asia market). For other physical units we have contract partners in Germany. All references are traceable to national standards and are re-calibrated in regular intervals.
