CAM Demand ExpanderTM

The CAM Demand ExpanderTM is a low-loss, high-accuracy pressure control valve station that provides stable plant pressure (typically +/- 0.5 psi or better) while isolating the plant from the trim compressor supply. Combined with event storage the CAM Demand ExpanderTM allows the plant to receive a consistent compressed air utility regardless of the conditions of the supply. Compressors can also be taken out of service and various optimized combinations of compressors can be used without the plant ever noticing a change. The end result is a lower monthly utility bill and improved operational productivity.

CAMLinkTM Compressed Air Automation

CAMLinkTM Compressed Air Automation monitors changes in the supply pressure to 0.01 psi and responds to the “Rate of Pressure Change” by either adding or deleting compression capacity. Most compressor systems have too much capacity on-line at all times in order to satisfy peak demands and prevent pressure dropping below acceptable levels. With the cost of compressed air at approximately 10x that of direct electrical power this type of operation is nothing but wasteful of energy costs. Differences in Pressure Set Points, Pressure Switch Dead-bands, and Pressure Losses make it virtually impossible to coordinate multiple compressors for optimal operation.

CAM Technologies provides clients with a wide range of service offerings tailored to meet their needs. Taking advantage of a CAM Technologies Service program will minimize machine downtime thus minimizing production loss while maximizing efficiency and energy savings. A CAM Technologies service offering is the final piece of your production and efficiency puzzle.

Air System Audits

CAM often conducts a site survey prior to our initial proposal. Complete Air System Audit may be recommended, especially for larger more complex facilities. Recommendations for Compressed Air System and point of use are the deliverables. Report includes optimization strategy, implementation plans and financials.

Automation and Integration Solutions

Will provide hands on support for commissioning of new equipment. CAMLink product standard is the Allen-Bradley control system, but most commissioning visits still require some degree of customization of user interface prior to start up. Detailed ProEngineer drafting and training service are available.

Turnkey Project Management

CAM Technologies can provide Professional Engineering and Construction Management services. We utilize independent contractors who have years of experience working with compressed air and with CAM Technologies equipment and personnel.

Remote Monitoring/Trending Services

  • Phone Support – Service contracts available which provide 24/7 engineering support. Plans start at 3 hours of phone consultation monthly, which allows operators to fully comprehend system operation, program settings & fault codes.
  • Remote Support – In addition to phone support; CAM delivers wireless tools which allow us to access controls remotely. We can troubleshoot systems live, and have remote programming capability. Service provides a return as soon as one field service call is eliminated. Included to support dynamic end user demands in the field.
  • Remote Monitoring – Remote Support is achievable with a computer on site which allows for data logging, trending & alarming. Live System View via Internet and annual site visits included.
  • Engineering Analysis – If you are on a path of continuous improvement, our Remote Monitoring with Engineering Analysis may be right for you. Monthly reports can be customized, and then analyzed at Quarterly System Review meetings. Semi-annual site visits are standard for this level of service.
