Reduce costs and increase safety with Airleader

With the selection of the most energy-specific compressors, have you laid the foundation for efficient and resource-saving generation of compressed air?

The next, and perhaps the most important, step is to provide the compressed air specialists with competent management quality due to constantly and unpredictably changing air consumption requirements!

What is the use of a headless "special unit" if - for lack of an overview - it works against each other in the worst case: Frequent wear-increasing switching cycles, unnecessary cost-intensive idling and strong pressure fluctuations destroy the talents of the individual components: High maintenance costs, unnecessary (also idle) energy costs are the result .

With an Airleader Compressor Management System you bring the competent management quality in your compressor station! Even if your individual components are not yet state-of-the-art, an Airleader MASTER / EASY / CN gets the best out of what you have:

  • switching cycles that cause wear:      minimized!
  • Cost-intensive idling:                            towards zero!
  • Pressure fluctuations:                          homogenized!
  • "Artificial" demand:                              weed out!

You save real money from day one! And even more in the future, because unfortunately the energy costs are not going to decrease.

The tactical key advantage:

Instead of blind flight you have full transparency and control via your desk. Facts and figures in a simple and clear manner also make the strategic planning of future procurement measures child's play.

  • Facts and figures:                full control!
  • Predictive maintenance:    full transparency!
  • Compressed air costs:       fully in view!
  • Strategic planning tool:     fully under control!

The Airleader compressor management system is independent of compressor manufacturers. Every brand and type of compressor, be it piston, screw, rotary, scroll or other positive displacement compressors - with an Airleader you have the highest level of safety and efficiency as well as complete transparency of all your recorded data.

Take your benefit from nearly 30 years of experience and more than 10,000 efficiently operated compressor stations by Airleader:

Expertise for your compressed air station 

 

Efficiency increase

Airleader uses a recursive algorithm, taking the pressure gradient into account, to determine the current consumption in real time. This means that only compressor combinations that match the consumption are switched.

This prevents unnecessary compressor starts, minimizes idling losses and loads the compressors evenly.

All connected compressors are operated in a common narrow pressure band*, because pressure costs money - and more pressure costs more money! Around 10% per bar. So why spend more money unnecessarily ...

* Without falling below the previous lower pressure limits - as a result, a safe compressed air supply is guaranteed at all times!

 

Wear reduction

As a result of the consumption-dependent use of the compressors, operating hours and switching operations are drastically reduced.
 
The compressors are operated at a lower pressure, the utilization becomes more even, which leads to significantly lower maintenance and repair costs.
 
A 50% reduction is usual.
 

Increase operational reliability

With an Airleader you can feel the pulse of your compressed air generation. With the appropriate sensors, Airleader delivers the vital data of all compressors and accessory units such as dryers, filters, condensate drains, cooling water systems, ventilation technology, etc.

Bearing vibration monitoring is an early warning system for expensive compressor stages: A bearing defect detected in good time allows an inexpensive bearing change to be planned (!) before a compressor stage may sudden crash.

The oil temperature / cooling water monitoring detects thermal irregularities in the compressor before serious problems arise.

The kW / ampere measurement of each compressor is not only necessary for ISO 50.001, but also helps to identify defective compressors: When the compressor efficiency gets worse - or looks suspiciously good - then something is wrong!

The differential pressure monitoring shows the status of the filter technology: clogged and torn filters can be easily identified. Thanks to limit value alarm, it is of course also possible to replace the element at the right time.

With a heat meter for heat recovery, you can ensure that your "free" energy source is delivering, and in what quantity.

Last but not least: With Airleader you know your peak consumption and whether the supply is still guaranteed if a compressor fails!

Transparency by visualization

The standard web visualization gives you full control: You can see whether the station is running well - but also if something doesn't look good at all! This is the only way to continuously improve and optimize. All compressor states, messages and sensors are visible and stored permanently (> 20 years) in high resolution (10 second mean values).

This is quality assurance at a high level. You can check at any time whether in the past z. For example, an increase in humidity in the compressed air was responsible for a problem in production - or not!

The connection to higher-level (energy) management systems is also possible easily and without wiring using the OPC / Modbus server connection. Data export on USB stick, in MS Office with a click of the mouse or in many other formats is also a matter of course.

Airleader ensures full control with web server visualization:
