Avelair can offer bespoke air compressor packages built to WIMES – the Water Industry and Mechanical Engineering Standards and have supplied these to Scottish Water, Anglia Water, Southern Water, Welsh Water to name but a few.
Avelair can offer bespoke air compressor packages built to WIMES – the Water Industry and Mechanical Engineering Standards and have supplied these to Scottish Water, Anglia Water, Southern Water, Welsh Water to name but a few. These packages are normally duty / standby air compressors with the necessary air treatment and control required for individual site requirements. Please find an overview below:
Type: Rotary screw air compressors • Airend: Encapsulated • Motor: High efficiency IE 3 . • Pressure range: 6 – 14.5 bar • Capacity: 0 – 1500 m³/hr
Specification: The cable and sizes in the electrical panel will be compliant with:
WIMES 3.01 Low voltage switchgear & control gear assembles
WIMES 3.04 Low voltage electrical specification for package plant
Test function isolator as required in the above spec.
Traffolyte labels on the exterior as require in the above spec
Identification and labelling of conductors and equipment
Food grade lubricant
Available as packed units complete with receivers, filtration, dryers, and condensate management systems or as duplex skid mounted and containerised systems.
Each compressor is fitted with its own local controller giving a de-centralised system in event of Common control section or communications failure, enabling both compressors to be able to run individually, giving maximum plant availability. The local controller also enables machine specific parameters to be adjusted or modified.
The S1 controllers will enable full running control and plant availability, but is limited on amount of information and diagnostic data it can provide
Remote signals available:
Avelair can offer sophisticated compressor controllers giving full running control and maximum plant availability, this system gives full information and diagnostic data, all of which can be made available to client’s master controller. These benefits are outlined as follows.
This system offers comprehensive protection of the motor feeder by means of a combination of different, multi-step and delayable protection and monitoring functions:
(CLASS 5 to 40)
This system can record measuring curves and therefore is able, for example, to present the progression of motor current during motor start-up. Different operating, service and diagnostics data available and helps to detect potential faults in time and to prevent them by means of preventative measures. In the event of a malfunction, a fault can be diagnosed, localized and rectified very quickly – there are no or very short downtimes.
This system has either an integrated PROFIBUS DP interface (SUB-D or terminal connection) or a PROFINET interface (2 x RJ45).
Avelairs sophisticated compressor controller system contributes to energy efficiency throughout the plant as follows:
Evaluation of energy measured values (e. g. limit value monitoring) with exporting of local or central actions (= forwarding to higher-level)
The controller supports the PROFIenergy functions. Reduced energy consumption thanks to automatic disconnection in the intervals and forwarding of the measured values for higher-level energy management systems.
Additional options for either control system
