The motor and airend are joined by the coupling and its housing to form a compact and durable unit that. Furthermore. low speed airends are more efficient than small high speed airends because they supply more air for the same drive power. Further advantages include long service life and reduced maintenance requirement. but also guarantees optimum energy efficiency. a second compressor in base-load sequencing mode and for connection to data networks (Profibus DP). Interfaces are provided as standard for connection of a modem. as the opening in the housing is more than large enough to replace the two coupling sections.2 6.5 bar . This ensures that every DSD and DSDX SFC compressor operates with the most efficient pressure-frequency profile. 8 Specific power is the key Large. Separation performance remains almost constant – even with fluctuating airflow – reliably maintaining the required pressure dew point. 2000 rpm. which enables seamless communication with the SFC control cabinet. This not only ensures unrivalled reliability and compressed air availability. The most efficient method of producing compressed air is by using large. but also applies throughout the entire control range. 13 bar 0. which is particularly important for variable speed machines. Furthermore. the worldwide presence of Siemens ensures dependable service.1 bar increments Pressure in bar DSD and DSDX 10 bar 0. Quadro.2 kW per m³/min for a KAESER SFC compressor operating at 7. The slightly higher investment cost of the larger airend is quickly recovered by the energy saved during operation. 6. Should the coupling ever need to be replaced. low speed airends are more efficient. That is why KAESER developed airends especially for the DSD and DSDX series that precisely match the individual drive power and motor speed of each machine in the range. The compact separator is integrated within the refrigeration dryer's heat exchanger package and deflector plates ensure reliable condensate separation. Variable frequency controlled compressors are only truly efficient if they have low energy consumption throughout their entire control range. both as individual components and as an integrated system. Vario and Continuous control. The use of standardised drive motors also contributes to long-term compressed air availability. Larger. low speed airends – airends in DSD/ DSDX SFC compressors have a typical maximum rotation speed of approx. 7 Flexible pressure adjustment The wide range of available 1:1 drive airends makes it possible to select the one that works most efficiently within the pressure and performance range required. delivering more compressed air for the same drive power. 2 Energy-saving 1:1 drive The advantages of this drive system are not just limited to the elimination of transmission losses. 5 Highly efficient condensate separator (with DSD T) The separator tank in the refrigeration dryer is made of aluminium and is therefore completely corrosion resistant. This is not just the case at full load. The SIGMA CONTROL automatically controls and monitors the compressor package.2 kW/m³/min at 7. Clearly marked navigation and input keys on the user interface are used to move around within the menu options of the four line alpha-numeric display. 6 SFC module from Siemens (with DSD and DSDX) Siemens frequency converters are used exclusively in KAESER’s speed controlled compressors for several reasons: Siemens manufactures the industrial PC-based SIGMA CONTROL compressor controller. Solid particles are also washed out and eliminated together with the condensate.5 bar can be considered as an excellent indication of the machine's efficiency. the SIGMA CONTROL compressor controller is equipped with a pressure-to-frequency profile that guarantees maximum flexibility for air delivery and pressure whilst providing best possible efficiency. This powerful compressor controller can also display information in any 1 of 30 selectable languages at just the press of a button. it takes just a few minutes without any disassembly of the unit. apart from greasing of the motor bearings.1 bar increments 7. The Profibus interface enables exchange of data and operational parameters allowing the SIGMA Control to communicate with other air management systems such as the SIGMA Air Manager.
