About 70 per cent of the compressed air generated goes into air blow applications and this affects a company’s bottom line, SMC says.
The pneumatics provider explains that companies can save by increasing their energy efficiency and subsequently boosting their business’ competitiveness.
Over the years, SMC has been fully committed to energy saving activities addressed at reducing energy bills whilst improving companies’ green footprint.
SMC has accomplished various levels of energy saving actions in its customers’ factories by conducting energy saving audits and working towards green procurement.
SMC keeps the productive process top-of-mind for our customers, always.
It focuses on efficiency in terms of the amount of materials needed to execute the process, effectiveness in terms of the ratio of projected raw materials versus the actual amount of raw materials used and productivity – the relationship between efficiency and effectiveness.
SMC’s blow gun with energy saving nozzle offers up to 20 per cent reduction in power consumption (when combined with an S coupler and Coil tube).
It can achieve equivalent performance at lower pressures, resulting in less air consumption.
When pairing the blow gun with SMC’s high efficiency nozzle, the KNH series, customers can enjoy maximum efficiency thanks to a more focused blowing impact.
There is a wide range to choose from and the air blow thrust can be improved by 10 per cent. Available nozzles include male thread, high efficiency, low noise with male thread, and extension nozzles.
Energy saving tips from SMC:
• Generate just what is needed – Analyse energy bills with a critical view
• Recover what is generated – Make use of different technologies to reuse the energy
• Monitor consumption
• Use only the essentials
• Think efficiently – The concept that closes the loop is the most important one to ensure energy efficiency
