You need to dry compressed air in your production? This is particularly important in sensitive areas requiring the highest level of hygiene and in which compressed air comes in contact directly or indirectly with products. The METPOINT® DPM measures the dew point of your compressed air through relative humidity and temperature. But that’s not all. It provides information on how well components are functioning, and the measurement provides the basis for optimising the dimensions of your plant. This makes the METPOINT® DPM not just a guarantor of safety in your process chain, but also an instrument for increasing the efficiency of your production.
It is self-evident that leakages drive up energy expenditure in production, but how leak-free – or leaky – is your system? Leaks often remain undetected because they are not usually audible, especially in a noisy production site. Unnoticed and unresolved, leaks will become significant cost drivers. Eliminating leakages provides the highest first round savings potential in re-evaluating a compressed air supply. Thanks to state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, the leakage detection device METPOINT® LKD seeks out even the smallest leaks. So, minimum expenditure: maximum returns. With the METPOINT® LKD you contribute to environmentally sound manufacturing processes, raise the energy efficiency of your production to a new level – and increase your company’s overall cost-effectiveness.
Many stages of compressed air treatment contain the risk of oil contamination, and often this is unknown. Compressed air contaminated by oil is a danger for production plants, for the environment and where the products relate to people, potentially for health. Precise monitoring of the oil vapour content in the compressed air is therefore highly important – and often not understood. The METPOINT® OCV is the first TÜV-certified online system for detecting the oil vapour content in compressed air. The system can be easily integrated into existing compressed air network and used to protect production and products.
Are your production processes optimised for the highest energy efficiency? The only way you can answer this question is if you have accurate data on the dynamics of the flow rate of your compressed air installation. The METPOINT® FLM provides detailed data analyses and helps you identify savings potential and provides the data for implementing sustained energy use enhancement strategies. You can identify over-loadings and malfunctions, and re-dimension your production plants to achieve maximum energy efficiency. The allocation of consumption shares to production units provides a concrete foundation for fact-based decision making. Also, METPOINT® FLM can show how much compressed air is being lost to leakages in the system. Measurement using the METPOINT® FLM provides you with the data to align components for optimal system efficiency.
The METPOINT® MMA simultaneously monitors seven (optionally eight) parameters of the generated compressed-air. Expensive and time-consuming sampling of separate parameters is no longer required. All the measuring results are indicated as numeric values on the METPOINT® BDL data-logger: operating pressure, moisture content, major constituent gas and trace gas content. Optionally, the residual oil vapour content can be indicated by adding additional sensors. In the event that a limit value is exceeded, the system will immediately trigger an alarm and high-light the value in question. The incident is specifically recorded for processing directly in the quality assurance system.
