Title: Install & Optimise Compressors

Saving: £139,950 p.a.

Our work for ThyssenKrupp involved the installation of energy efficient lead compressors and the optimisation of the existing compressor plant.

ThyssenKrupp required this project because their planned installation of  a new production  line needed to generate compressed air at 7.0 bar, however the existing reciprocating compressed air system could only reach 6.7 bar.

Working to a strict timeline, E2 Services designed & specified a HPC compressor  system  that  made  best  use  of  the  site’s  existing  screw compressors,  together  with  the  addition  of  four  new  compressors.  The  ring main  was  re-designed  to  provide  improved  air  flow and a  central  management system was added in order to provide accurate control of all parameters.

Additional savings were achieved on the  project  through making  use of  waste heat from the compressor house, and making use of central control.

"Being responsible for project managing the whole new production line, I just didn’t have time to look at compressed air myself. E2 Services had already proved competent on other large energy saving projects at Cannock & took on this responsibility for me. The actual savings achieved went beyond the project estimations, whilst giving me the reliable compressed air I needed at the new pressure"
