Variable Speed Drive technology helps customer save 71%

A leading manufacturer of Kitchen and Flooring Installation and Care products has reduced the annual cost of their compressed air system by more than 70% by switching to a Variable Speed Drive compressor provided by Wearside Pneumatics.

 

The first stage in the project was for Wearside Pneumatics to carry out seven days of energy monitoring on the compressor that was in situ on the customer’s premises. This indicated that by replacing the existing 20kW Mark compressor with an Atlas Copco GA15VSD+, the customer could save £3,038 per year!

 

Better still, the Variable Speed Drive technology provided the customer with a higher volume of compressed air at the same time as reducing energy consumption; the GA15VSD+ provides a Free Air Delivery of 42 litres per second compared to the 30 litres per second provided by the Mark unit. That’s 40% more air, while using 71% less energy!

 

The new Atlas Copco compressor was supplied, installed and commissioned by Wearside Pneumatics and will pay for itself in less than four years! Businesses all over the North-East are benefitting from making the switch to Atlas Copco Variable Speed Drive technology with Wearside Pneumatics.
