What is Variable Speed Driver (VSD) technology?
Variable frequency soft start, No current
Modern, energy efficient compressed air systems, as well as individual analysis of compressor systems, can bring about
potential energy savings of 30 to 50 %.
Over 80% of a compressor’s lifecycle cost is taken up by the
energy it consumes.
In almost every production environment, air demand fluctuates depending on different factors such as the time of the day,
week or even month.
Extensive measurements and studies of compressed air demand profiles show that many compressors have significant variations in air demand.
To cut your energy costs, kimair provides the application “Variable Speed Driver technology” in the compressed air industry.
The design of kimair. K-series machine ensures high efficiency
over all the range of working condition, with a wider range of frequency conversion from 30% to 100%.
The air output variation is directly proportional to actual power consumption, approximately to energy efficiency curve under ideal status.
No current peak during start up
Unlimited starting and stopping.
Saving in electrical installation : smaller
breakers, fuses, transformers and cables.
Fast reaction for demand of air volume and pressure
through constant voltage control
Comparison of energy saving
between Standard type and
Through constant voltage control under 0.01MPa,
it can produce the required accuracy of compressed
air and it leads to achieve more energy saving.
Permanent Magnet Motor
Test result of the efficiency and power of the
permanent magnet motor at different speeds.
Permanent magnet motor provides much
longer durability, applying good quality
permanent magnet (NdFeB) which does not
loss the excitation even at 180℃.
The motor speed regulation range is wide, the
precision is high, the air volume adjustment
range is wider.
Kimair. k-series Permanent Magnet Motor
Eliminate the inefficient conversion process from unload to full load.
Applied permanent magnet motor, energy saving is 6 to 7 % higher compared to other ordinary inverter compressor.
Maintain the fluctuation pressure under 0.01 MPa in the process line, reduced the average working pressure.
Soft start method improved current balance of motor and prevented shock of current.
Variable Frequency Control with
Permanent Magnet Motor
PM Motor Type compressor with variable
frequency control (Inverter Control)
is available to save energy from 6 to 7% more
than Ordinary Inverter Type Compressor.
Permanent magnet motor can maintain high
Motor efficiency at low speed.
When the air consumption is small, it has
obvious advantage of saving energy.
How much it can save?
K100 Energy saving(30% Unloading)
K100PS energy saving: USD21,000/Year (38%saving)
K100PE energy saving: USD23,300/Year (44%saving)
Kimair. k-series Variable Speed Drive technology closely matches
the air demand by automatically adjusting the motor speed.
Combined with the innovative design of the PM(Permanent Magnet)
motor, this results in average energy savings of 44% and an average
cut of 35% in the lifecycle cost of a compressor.
The energy consumption rate of air compressor in a factory could be more than 40~80 % from whole
energy consumption, this K-series can significantly reduce energy consumption. It can control
production of air volume by variable speed control in accordance with actual demand of compressed air.
