Compressed air management — lowering energy costs by up to 50%
Developed and used by PK Controls compressor technicians for our DirectAIR® compressed air utility service, ManagAIR® is simply the most advanced, yet easy-to-use system available today for controlling and monitoring an industrial, multiple air compressor system. It’s a state-of-the-art computerized system that centrally monitors and controls your system — offering compressed air management 24/7/365. This system will minimize the time that you and your personnel spend in the compressor room while significantly reducing energy costs, maintenance costs and downtime.
How It Works
Simply connect your air compressors to an existing Ethernet (LAN), and ManagAIR® will centrally monitor, operate and control your compressed air system from a LAN-connected PC. ManagAIR® will provide central monitoring and automatic data logging of all of the operating conditions of the connected equipment, freeing up your production personnel’s valuable time.
A powerful graphing function allows for easy trending and analysis of the data to maximize system efficiency, reduction of maintenance costs and minimization of unscheduled downtime. ManagAIR® will calculate and data log your system’s total compressed air flow rate, providing you with the information that you need to effectively and efficiently manage your fourth utility — compressed air. ManagAIR® can immediately alert your personnel via a text or email of a system alarm or compressor warning/shutdown condition to ensure prompt attention. If a compressor shutdown occurs, the operating conditions at the time of shutdown are saved and can be reviewed remotely through ManagAIR® to speed diagnosis and repair.
Cutting Your Air Costs
ManagAIR® will sequence your air compressors at peak efficiency, saving you tens of thousands of dollars in power costs. Either use the air system flow data to determine the most efficient compressor sequence order for your plant’s production periods and set up ManagAIR® to automatically change the compressor sequence or let our Energy Optimization mode determine the most efficient compressor sequence based on compressed air usage. ManagAIR® will even email a daily report with each compressor’s operating data and upcoming maintenance intervals along with a graph of the system flow rate and pressure from the previous 24 hours. What could be easier?
As an option, ManagAIR® can be customized to monitor and control air dryers, pumps, fans, louvers, valves and other equipment to provide complete and comprehensive control of your compressed air system. If you have a plant-wide CMMS system, we can provide data output and/or control input capabilities in your system at a convenient centralized point. With ManagAIR® operating, maintaining and controlling your compressed air system, it has never been easier to achieve peak reliability and efficiency!
