Energy savings using Paxton Air Delivery products
Still using compressed air?
Compressed air is often the first solution because the air supply already exists in the factories and it can be applied to the line at a very small cost. However the energy consumption is high. The cost is related. On the other hand, anyone who uses an air knive system, chooses an energy efficient system and at the same time a cost effective solution.
80-90% of the energy used with compressed air is used to compress and transport the air to the site where it is needed. If you are drying your air before compression, even more energy is wasted. With Paxton blowers, all the energy is used in drying and blow off.
Paxton centrifugal blowers deliver a higher volume of air per kW of energy to dry and blow off faster and more efficiently.
Paxton Products custom design air delivery devices for your specific application so the right volume of air is directed when and where you need it. Whether drying the tops, the sides, or the entire product, we have Paxton air delivery devices to hit your target.
Using Regen, Squirrel Cage or Other Blowers?
Paxton blowers are engineered to be more efficient than these other blowers. When coupled with custom designed air delivery devices, a Paxton system can reduce energy usage by 50%.
Paxton blowers operate cooler: heat generated by a blower is energy wasted. Paxton's design results in a blower that operates 20 deg. F cooler than other blowers.
Paxton blowers use a belt technology that reduces friction. Lower friction means less energy usage and longer belt life — reducing maintenance too.
State-of-the-art impeller design generates more airflow at lower blower speeds - again reducing energy usage.
Air delivery systems are custom designed to minimize pressure drop, thus maximizing blower performance and minimizing energy usage.
