Natural Gas Air Compressors Offer Efficiency, Reliability & Cost Saving.
For many manufacturing and processing companies, natural gas air compressors account for over 10% of their total energy costs. By increasing the efficiency of their natural gas air compressors, companies can save both energy and money. Whenever their is a need for a supply of natural compressed air, DeltaPro has the equipment to get the job done.
What Natural Gas Equipment is Currently Available?
DeltaPros' natural gas air compressors are engineered for continuous operation, maximum efficiency, long service life, variable speed operation, and simple maintenance. Standard natural gas air compressors units range from 30-2000 hp, or custom units can be designed to fit the specific needs and applications of our customers. The systems come pre-packaged on a skid and are easily installed by qualified personnel or can be supplied as a turn-key solution.
Low Energy Costs
Natural gas air compressors offer customers an excellent way to reduce operating costs by eliminating a portion of the electric load, and the expensive demand charges that accompany it. With the current cost of electricity, natural gas engines can save up to 50% on air compression costs, including maintenance.
Higher Efficiency at Part-Load
Studies show that industrial air compressors typically operate at 60-70% capacity. Electric compressors lose efficiency in this range. However, gas engines with variable speed are built to handle these part-load conditions, and continue to operate at their highest efficiency even when running as low as 30% full load.
Waste heat recovered from the engine cooling jacket water as well as from exhaust gases can be used in other applications such as preheating boiler makeup water or space heating. This recycled heat can reduce energy costs even further.
Responsible companies around the world are attempting to reduce emissions that are harmful to the environment. Clean-burning natural gas can help these facilities achieve their environmental compliance objectives.
Facilities switching to natural gas air compressors are experiencing cost savings up to 50% per year and paybacks on their investments within two to four years.
