- Mattei compressors win case for vane technology Mattei
- Products Services News About us Contact us Mattei news Current news Archive Mattei compressors win case for vane technology When Burckhardt Compression, a manufacturer of custom-built large reciprocating gas compressors for the oil refining, gas transportation and petrochemical industries, needed a compressor to meet its own compressed air needs, the company turned to Mattei for the solution. After looking at all the options available including screw compressors, Burckhardt Compression opted for Mattei's rotary vane technology for its excellent power consumption. Burckhardt Compression recently relocated to new premises in Bicester and kitted out its grit blasting facility used to service and clean compressor parts. Mattei supplied its Optima 30 plus variable speed drive compressor with integrated dryer to provide the compressed air used in the cleaning process and the ring main to power the air tools. Colin Webb, managing director for Burckhardt Compression, explains: "Grit blasting is one of the most common methods for cleaning valves and other key components for our compressors. The process actually involves compressed air, which is used to blast glass beads onto the surface being cleaned, to maintain the efficiency and life expectancy of the machine. In addition, we also use compressed air for tools in the workshop. "While we were looking for a machine that would reliably deliver compressed air with minimum power consumption, we visited our parent company in Switzerland and found they were using Mattei compressors. Up until this point, we had been going down the route of rotary screw technology, but when we saw the Mattei compressors in action, we were impressed and the feedback from our colleagues in Switzerland was really positive." After weighing up the benefits of vane technology over screw, Burckhardt Compression chose Mattei's solution, which as well as the Optima 30 plus with its integrated dryer, included the provision of new Teseo aluminium pipework, which offers improved air flows, reduced pressure drops and its modular construction allows for easy modification for the end user. Andy Jones, general manager for Mattei, comments: "When it comes to choosing which type of compressor to opt for, companies really need to think about energy efficiency, operating speeds, wear and maintenance costs. Screw compressors account for a significant share of the market but that doesn't mean they are the right choice for everyone, particularly when major advancements have been made in vane technology over recent years. In fact, vane compressors now offer advantages over screw machines. "For example, screw compressors need to run at high speeds to compensate for air leakage paths. In contrast, vane machines have always operated at low speeds, which in turn leads to lower power consumption. Some of Mattei's fixed speed compressors operate at 1,000rpm, whereas the average screw compressor needs to work at 3,000rpm to achieve the same result." The Optima 30 is part of Mattei's energy efficient variable speed drive range. Designed using the company's superior build knowledge, the machine operates within pre-set minimum and maximum pressures of seven to 10 bar and provides between 2.149 and 5.342 m3/min (76 - 189 cfm) air flow, while maintaining a low power input. Designed to deliver the highest levels of energy efficiency, the Optima 30 is a stand alone, air cooled stationary air compressor, powered by a variable speed electric motor controlled by Mattei's inverter regulation system, offering users best-in-class energy savings when compared to other types of variable speed drive compressors. Unlike a fixed speed compressor, this system regulates the compressor's output to the load profile required, providing significant energy savings of typically 30 per cent or more of the annual operating costs, which is standard across the Optima range. Andy Jones adds: "The Optima 30 has been accurately designed down to the smallest detail to provide an ultra-reliable machine. For example, reliability and efficiency are enhanced by the compressor's reduced rotational speed; the absence of roller bearings, which means there are fewer components for maintenance; and the integration of an advanced lubrication and cooling system. All these benefits means Burckhardt Compression can rest assured they will receive reliable compressed air for years to come."

- Repairing leaks can improve compressor efficiencies Mattei
- Products Services News About us Contact us Mattei news Current news Archive Repairing leaks can improve compressor efficiencies Investing in a new, modern compressor can result in huge energy and carbon savings - but there are other actions a business can take to ensure their compressed air system is operating as efficiently as possible. Here John Taylor, business development manager at Mattei, explains why rectifying air leaks can result in significant energy and cost savings. Many businesses will currently be searching for ways to improve their energy efficiency and reduce costs - and in the industrial sector, automation is a good place to start. Most businesses using automation for all or part of their manufacturing processes generally rely on a mix of electrical and pneumatic technology - with electrically driven air compressors accounting for around 10 per cent of their electricity costs. Therefore, when looking to save energy, manufacturers should be assessing their compressed air systems- especially because the electricity consumed during operation actually accounts for 75 per cent of the total lifetime cost of a compressor. However, despite this fact, many businesses don't pay enough attention to compressor efficiencies. Compressors tend to be regarded as 'fit and forget' products - but this is rarely the best approach. Even if a compressor has low maintenance requirements, the system and the machine will still need to be checked on a regular basis to ensure they are working efficiently and to their optimum performance. When the efficiency of a compressed air system does come under scrutiny, there is often a misconception that a replacement purchase is the only way to make substantial improvements. Over recent years significant advancements have been made in compressor technology, so it's true that replacing an old machine with a modern equivalent will result in energy savings. However, before purchasing a new compressor, it's important to check that the system as a whole is working efficiently. Otherwise, the case for replacing the compressor could be based on misleading figures, and the investment could prove to be false economy. One of the most important things to check is whether any air leaks are present. Compressed air is far from free - but many companies actually waste as much as 50 per cent of the compressed air they generate simply to serve leaks in the system. The good news is that leaks can be identified and rectified. And, with a (conservative) estimation of a 30 per cent average loss at each site, it's easy to see the cost saving potential. According to the Carbon Trust, air escaping through a single 3mm hole could cost a business nearly 700 per year in energy costs. But a typical compressed air system will have more than just one hole - a medium-size manufacturer will generally have between 200 and 1,000 leaks in their system. So, for a company using 50m3 of compressed air per minute, we estimate the annual savings would be in the region of 63,072, although British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) figures suggest a much higher saving of 118,260. Larger companies with relatively high compressed air consumption of 100m3 per minute or above could expect to save at least 236,520 per year according to BCAS, or 126,144 according to Mattei's figures. So, identifying and repairing leaks can be a simple and cost-effective way to reduce the cost of producing compressed air - and a new machine might not be needed at all. But unfortunately some compressor companies are purely interested in selling new machines, whether it's in the customer's best interest or not. Mattei has always taken a best practice approach; we want to give our customers the best service possible, and provide the right solution for them. With this in mind, we have recently set up a leak detection service, which can definitely be worthwhile in terms of return on investment. The average cost of a Mattei leak detection survey is less than 10 per cent of the overall leakage costs. After leaks have been identified, we recommend a corrective maintenance repair programme - again the cost of this is less than 10 per cent of the overall leakage costs. Once improvements have been made, the savings are immediate - and most companies have a payback period of less than six months. The savings are also long-term, although we suggest the system is checked for leaks every year. Increasing the efficiency of a compressed air supply shouldn't just be based on replacing the compressor - sometimes the best approach is to make improvements to the system, rather than investing in a new machine. Air leaks have a serious impact on efficiency, and ensuring they are repaired can save huge amounts of energy and money - whether a new compressor is purchased or not.
