Variable Speed Drive Compressors
Energy Efficiency – Ingersoll Rand Variable Speed Drive Air Compressors
The global drive to reduce energy consumption in all industry sectors has resulted in the widespread adoption and success of the Ingersoll Rand range of variable speed drive compressors. Built on the time proven Nirvana technology, the range spans from 5.5kw up to 160kw and delivers exceptional energy efficiency. This low energy performance allows the owner to minimise their energy costs as well as ensuring their carbon footprint is as small as possible.
Variable speed drive machines can be stand alone or twinned with multiple fixed or variable speed air compressors. In the latter case the use of an Ingersoll Rand Intelliflow valve provides the control that truly optimises the energy performance of the equipment.
Variable Speed Compressor Energy Saving Features
- The Ingersoll Rand Hybrid Permanent Magnet (HPM) motor provides unparallelled reliability and efficiency, whether operating at full load or down as low as 20%.
- Shutting down when no air is required, the compressor delivers constant pressure control and smooth soft starting.
- The HPM motor has no pulleys, belts or couplings and is therefore maintenance free.
