At EMO Hannover 2017, the compressed air systems specialist will present a comprehensive showcase of innovative products and services with powerful advantages. All users – no matter the scale of their operation or industry – will find the right solution for a compressed air supply that’s reliable, efficient and most importantly, completely ready for integration into the Industrie 4.0 environments of the future.

Kaeser offers single units as well as complete system solutions that cover the entire compressed air system life-cycle. Its extensive product portfolio ranges from highly efficient rotary screw compressors for compressed air production – together with compatible treatment options, intelligent controllers and management systems – to innovative and individually tailored service solutions, including predictive maintenance and cost-effective contracting solutions.

An efficient compressed air supply begins with efficient components, which is why Kaeser now equips all of its rotary screw compressors from 30kW and up with super premium efficiency IE4 motors as standard. With the best efficiency values currently available, they serve to further cut compressor power consumption. Moreover, further refinement and optimisation of Kaeser’s Kaeser Sigma Profile air ends – the key components actually responsible for producing the compressed air – has helped boost specific power in rotary screw compressors from 75kW and up, for example, by as much as 12 per cent. The new DSD and FSD-series rotary screw compressors, therefore, offer significantly enhanced efficiency and higher flow rates – which translate into tangible energy cost savings.

The frequency-controlled ASD compressor series has set yet another milestone: the synchronous reluctance motor now installed as standard for the first time features markedly lower rotor power losses compared to asynchronous motors.

Industrie 4.0 compatibility

It‘s a given that the central aspects of Industrie 4.0 – machine networking and communication capabilities – are highly beneficial no matter what size of the compressor is used. Accordingly, Kaeser is now also extending Industrie 4.0 capabilities to its smaller rotary screw compressor models (2.2 to 22kW) so that users of these units can also benefit from seamless integration into Industrie 4.0 environments. Specifically in the future, SX – ASK series rotary screw compressors will feature the Sigma Control 2 compressor controller as standard equipment – the component necessary to unlock the powerful benefits of machine networking.

Sigma Air Manager 4.0

Kaeser’s signature compressed air management system, now featuring improved 3D Advanced Control, perfectly harmonises the operation of all components in a compressed air system to ensure maximum availability and energy efficiency at all times. As such it acts as the central node and basic requirement for taking advantage of powerful Industrie 4.0 services such as permanent energy management and predictive maintenance.

Customised service

With the innovative Sigma Smart Air service, Kaeser makes customer-tailored maintenance services available to every user. In addition to enabling predictive maintenance in combination with the Sigma Air Manager 4.0, Sigma Smart Air ensures optimum energy efficiency and compressed air availability.
