In multiple compressor systems, maximum efficiency is achieved through true load sharing that continuously matches facility demand with supply capacity while balancing the load between compressors. AirMaster™ is a load sharing solution for centrifugal compressors that easily manages multiple centrifugal compressors and automatically starts, stops, and throttles each to realize the greatest energy savings without sacrificing reliability.
AirMaster™ is a PLC system that sequentially throttles centrifugal compressors to ensure each compressor completes a turndown before subsequent compressors are throttled. Sequencing maximizes the turndown of all centrifugal compressors in the system to eliminate unnecessary blow-off. It works by throttling multiple compressors at once to prevent blow-off valves from opening while maintaining capacity so that any individual compressor can unload and timeout. User-defined rules allow an unloaded machine to be shut down and restarted automatically to maximize energy savings further.
The AirMaster™ load sharing solution for centrifugal compressors is a highly configurable system that is easily adapted to a variety of systems and conditions. They are designed to work with AirLogix™ local controllers and are capable of communicating with third-party OEM proprietary control systems. This allows the AirMaster™ to be used even when the existing local controllers haven’t been replaced. AirMaster™ systems are also pre-engineered, so they are readily available.
