Along with water, compressed air may well be the most useful and versatile substance known to industry. Its thousands of uses have made industrial air compressors vital to countless industrial processes.

Compressed air systems power pneumatic equipment and other machinery. In vehicles, they enable brake systems, inflate tires and deploy air bags. In agriculture, compressed air powers and services irrigation systems and is used in crop sprayers, dairy machines and coolers. Industrial air compressors atomize paint, clean precision parts and provide efficient energy storage. They are used in injection molding, sandblasting, food preservation and countless other applications in nearly every industry. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to get through a day or even an hour without coming into contact with something that was made possible by compressed air.

High Efficiency Industrial Air Compressor Systems

Because of its vital role in production and energy transfer, the efficiency of your industrial air compressor system directly impacts your productivity and profitability. CAM Technologies’ compressed air systems allow you to automate and use compressed air in a more efficient manner so that you can: 

  • Reduce energy costs — Maintaining efficiency in compressed air systems can be challenging, as they often struggle with issues such as maintaining optimal pressure in the face of fluctuating demand. Our CAMLink™ products help to significantly reduce energy waste due to excess capacity in the system and other issues.
  • Improve reliability — 24/7 automated system monitoring and remote engineering support helps to identify problems before they occur and ensures quick resolution of any issues that do appear. It’s a safeguard that provides peace of mind, simplifies maintenance budgeting and helps to eliminate costly downtime.
  • Increase production — Our proprietary compressed air automation technology features the most advanced controller on the market to ensure that your compressed air capacity always matches your production needs.

The CAM Technologies Solution isolates the supply from demand, allowing you to make smart decisions about how and when to make air. Our solutions allow you to accomplish your work using a reduced demand side pressure. By running your facility at a lower pressure, you are able to realize savings in many ways — energy cost savings are just the beginning.

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.
