  • Hazardous Area Classification Considerations

    Specifiers are increasingly citing requirements for equipment suitable for use in classified areas. Kaeser’s white paper, “Hazardous Area Classification Considerations” by industry expert, Wayne Perry, explains how an open mind and a little ingenuity can avoid excessive costs for compressors and other equipment, without compromising safety.

  • Compressed Air System Leaks: The Cost, Common Culprits, Detection and Repair

    The US DOE estimates that 25% of compressed air is lost to leaks— resulting in unnecessarily high operating costs. In many plants the leak losses are much higher. Kaeser’s white paper, “Compressed Air System Leaks: The Cost, Common Culprits, Detection, and Repair” explains how to determine the annual cost per compressed air leak, sheds light on where most leaks occur, and describes best practices for leak detection.

  • The Benefits of Circulating Oil in Ring-Lubricated Hydrodynamic Bearings

    Hydrodynamic bearings depend on a steady flow of lubricant onto the shaft, among other factors, in order to generate the film that separates the shaft and bearing during operation. In many applications, such as fans, motors, and gearboxes, oil rings are used to deliver this lubricant. However, there are limitations to oil ring lubrication, especially during startup, slow speed conditions, and in the presence of solid contamination. Adding an external circulating oil system can overcome these limitations while offering benefits to bearing reliability, providing cooling, and allowing for easier condition monitoring.

  • Applying Variable Speed Compressors in Multiple Compressor Applications

    In Kaeser Compressors’ white paper, "Applying Variable Speed Compressors in Multiple Compressor Applications,” system design expert, Neil Mehltretter, provides guidance on how to properly apply variable frequency drive (VFD) compressors. A key topic is "control gap", a common problem caused by improper sizing and application of variable speed compressors.

  • Chemical Processing Special Report: How to Succeed with VFDs

    Medium voltage variable frequency drives (VFDs) are often the best choice to capitalize on opportunities to significantly reduce the operating and maintenance costs associated with relatively large rotating equipment. Even a seemingly modest energy savings of a few percent of the operating load can translate into significant energy savings. In this special report we take a look at how to make the most of VFDs: how optimum performance depends upon proper installation and control; how controlling the speed of VFDs can help eliminate waste and promote efficiency, reliability and quality and; considerations for changing drive speed over pumps.

  • Energy Savings From Synchronous Belt Drives

    Approximately one-third of the electric motors in the industrial and commercial sectors use belt drives. If the efficiency of these systems were improved by just 5%, plants would see tremendous energy savings. Such savings are not out of reach. Synchronous belt drives operate so efficiently that they enable savings across many industrial applications.
