Compressed air monitoring equipment
4th Quarter 2018, Pneumatic systems & components


The cost of compressed air equipment is ever-increasing and the need to economise on equipment and power consumption has become even more critical in South Africa. A mid-range air compressor with a 160 kW motor will cost a company in excess of R1,5 million per annum in power and standard service costs. The ability to monitor the compressed air system and prevent contamination before it creates a system upset is a major benefit to any services manager. When water contamination gets into a compressed air system it takes weeks to clear, or evaporate, even when the dew point is rectified. Oil can stay in a system for life. The cost of monitoring is easily recouped by air instrumentation monitoring the airline to ensure that the compressed air remains dry and clean, ensuring downstream air driven equipment service uptime and availability.

Suto-iTec in Germany offers a broad range of compressed air monitoring equipment to record data and inform operational staff about a compressed air system’s performance. This includes a wide range of instruments that can monitor air or vacuum flow, air or vacuum pressure, temperature, compressed air dew point, particle count, oil carry-over performance and power monitoring.

Data storage solutions are offered through the Suto-iTec CSM-2G cloud-based data capture system, or through simple data logging. Information from multiple instruments can be taken back to a wall-mounted static or mobile touch sensitive display or data-logger, or onto a central scada system via 4-20 mA, RS-485 or Ethernet connections.
