An Overview of Master Controls

Master Controls for Compressors

Master Controls Think of a master controller as a sort of traffic cop for a busy intersection, coordinating compressors instead of cars. It provides the necessary communication and orchestration required to ensure that every compressor is working in concert with its counterparts. Master controllers have been on the market for years, many of them are… Read more »

How the Internet of Things Helps Make Industrial Air Compressors More Efficient

AirSupport_systems

Have you heard of the term “Internet of Things (IoT)?” It entails connecting all sorts of devices and machines to the internet.  This networking allows and facilitates the collecting of real time data which is then compiled and shared across multiple platforms for better decision making. IIoT is the Industrial focus on the IoT and… Read more »

Why Industrial Manufacturers Are buying PLC Based Control Systems for their Plant Utility Air Compressors

First, it’s probably helpful if we address what exactly a PLC is. PLC stands for “Programmable Logic Controller”. It’s a modular, ruggedized, industrial type of computer which continuously monitors inputs values, runs them through a program (software), then determines the correct output values and adjust the “system” accordingly. The PLC (hardware) and the program (software)… Read more »

The Importance of Centrifugal Air Compressor Controls

Centrifugal Air Compressor Controls

Centrifugal air compressors supply compressed air for various manufacturing processes in industrial factories.  These machines convert atmospheric air to a higher pressure through the use of a high-speed rotating impeller and radial blades that, in simple terms, accelerate air molecules and then cram them together, thus creating an increase in pressure.  Centrifugal air compressors are… Read more »

What Are the Advantages of Rotary Screw Controllers?

Few things are more important to an industrial business’ bottom line than the state of their air compressor systems. Efficient air compressors reduce energy bills, prevent shutdowns and keep things running smoothly. Conversely, inefficient ones cause all sorts of headaches for business owners, while wasting energy and increasing expenses. Rotary screw compressors are one of… Read more »

Reliability and System Transparency

What IS reliability?  Here at Case Controls we specifically explore what we mean by reliability by addressing terms such as uptime and downtime, as these are the key considerations or outcomes desired by the operators.  Metrics for understanding reliability have been long discussed, understood and widely taught throughout different industries largely intended to provide clairvoyance… Read more »

The Importance of Air Dryer Controllers

Compressed air is a foundational utility for manufacturing companies. It’s used to keep a wide range of vital machines and other devices working properly. When it’s not , it increases energy costs for businesses and puts extra, unneeded wear and tear on machines.  Moisture is one example of a variable that can cause issues for… Read more »

Optimizing Compressor Reliability in Manufacturing Plants

In manufacturing settings where companies depend on compressed air systems to maintain their operations, the reliability of these systems is of the utmost importance. System failures are costly mishaps that can derail production and have a significant impact on a company’s bottom line. That’s why at Case Controls, we implement certain system redundancies and automation… Read more »

Safety Concerns Associated With Compressed Air Blow-Off

In factories and other industrial settings, it’s not uncommon to see workers remove dust and debris from their clothing and skin using compressed air guns. While this might seem like an innocuous and practical method of cleaning off after a long day of work, compressed air can actually cause severe injuries and even death when… Read more »
