In­no­va­tive air saver mod­ule for blow­guns from Parker saves en­ergy with­out com­pro­mis­ing per­for­mance

Power Watch India - - EQUIPMENT WATCH -

Parker Han­nifin has un­veiled its in­no­va­tive pneu­matic HASV Air Saver Mod­ule for use on blow­guns. The HASV has been de­signed to emit pulsed rather than con­tin­u­ous air, which can re­duce air con­sump­tion and elec­tric­ity use by up to 35%. Blow­guns are used ex­ten­sively in fac­to­ries the world over. Ma­chine shops, fab­ri­ca­tion fa­cil­i­ties, assem­bly plants and elec­tron­ics fac­to­ries all utilise blow­guns to re­move con­tam­i­nants such as dust, metal fines and liq­uids. How­ever, such de­vices typ­i­cally use con­tin­u­ous blow tech­nol­ogy, which does not sup­port low en­ergy us­age or good en­vi­ron­men­tal cre­den­tials. As a re­sult, Parker de­vel­oped the HASV Air Saver Mod­ule that gen­er­ates pulsed air whilst also min­imis­ing pres­sure re­duc­tion dur­ing the short (30ms) off time to main­tain the same ef­fi­ciency as con­tin­u­ous air blow tech­nol­ogy. HASV, which is the lat­est ad­di­tion to the com­pany’s pneu­matic Air Saver prod­uct range in­tro­duced in 2015, is a com­pact unit that is able to gen­er­ate high power. In ad­di­tion, it rep­re­sents safe, easy-to-con­trol, en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly tech­nol­ogy. Any fac­tory or plant can tran­si­tion from con­tin­u­ous to pulsed air blow as an easy en­try point for adopt­ing greener cre­den­tials. At a pres­sure of 5 Bar (0.5 Mpa), op­er­at­ing for a to­tal of 120 min­utes per day, the fac­tory cal­cu­lates that it will save the equiv­a­lent to ap­prox­i­mately 5500 Euro on its an­nual elec­tric­ity bill based on 240 days’ us­age.
