Regulate pressures in large installations

Atlas Copco has launched a pressure band controller designed to regulate the air net pressure of a multi compressor installation within narrow programmable minimum and maximum limits. The company says this can mean considerable energy savings when compared to using a pressure cascade system.

The ES300 distributes the running time of between two and 16 compressors on a common air net, looking at the capacities of each and automatically bringing on line the most suitable machines to match air consumption.

Checking the status of each compressor is made easy by a simple display on the control panel. Operating parameters are accessible through menu driven control programmes.
