Compressed air is a vital component of most manufacturing plants across the globe. If your company relies on it, you know how essential it is to maintain your day-to-day operations. If your air compressor shuts down, in many cases, production halts too.
What if you could monitor the health and status of your air compressor system in real-time and prevent issues from the start? With remote air compressor monitoring, you can!
Benefits of Remote Air Compressor Monitoring
Air compressor monitoring systems allow you to keep track of your compressed air systems. Not only will you be able to catch air production issues before they become critical, but you can also extend the life of your air compressor in the long term. Read on to learn more!
1. It’s Energy-Efficient
Air compressors take in atmospheric air to increase their pressure. This process requires a significant amount of electricity and energy. If your compressor needs maintenance, it will work harder than it needs to, use more energy, and it won’t be able to reach its full potential.
A compressor system with less than optimum air pressure wastes energy and money. An air leak as small as just 1/16″ can cost a facility around $800 a year in energy costs, and that’s just one leak! Imagine if you had a system that could tell you the minute your system began leaking. That’s energy efficiency at its finest.
2. Issues Are Caught Before They Become Critical
Monitoring air flow data with remote compressed air monitoring will catch these issues before they become critical. A team of experts will see the problem and get it fixed quicker than you would even know it began.
3. It’s Cost Effective
You’ll get more mileage out of your machine when you track compressor performance and proactively respond to information. You can ensure optimal compressed air production per unit of electricity.
As a result, you’ll reduce labor costs associated with inspecting the machines and diagnosing issues. You can prolong or even avoid expensive repairs entirely.
Plus, if your compressor shuts down, most likely, production will too. This means you won’t be able to meet your quotas, and you’ll fall behind schedule – leading to revenue loss.
Beyond the impact on your compressor performance, when you choose remote compressor monitoring from TMI, know you are getting one of the most cost-effective solutions on the market! With an unbeatable subscription-based price and easy installation, TMI’s remote monitoring subscription package is designed with your company’s needs in mind.
4. Operational Metrics Are Always Available
With air compressor monitoring solutions, data and metrics will always be available. This allows the maintenance team to spot trends and behavior, delivering more proactive service and making your system run to the best of its ability.
With this information at your fingertips, you’ll find that routine maintenance is far less necessary. Health monitoring is constantly happening in the background, and improvements are always being made.
Some remote monitoring platforms run into IT firewalls and other security measures that keep you from getting the data you need when you need it. TMI’s remote monitoring platform operates on a safe, cellular-based model which both improves the ease of installation and eliminates common firewall problems so you’ll always have real-time data.
5. It Improves Compressor Lifespan
The better you maintain your compressor, the longer you can use it in your operations. You can improve your system’s lifespan by monitoring oil levels, replacing filters, controlling temperature, draining moisture, and fixing leaks.
With remote monitoring equipment, state-of-the-art technology is used to find these problems before they become critical. Your compressor will always be in tip-top shape and have an optimal lifespan.
