Compressor Control Systems and Retrofits

Compressor Control Systems and Retrofits

Controls upgrade packages are available for all models of large air and natural gas compressors that use PLC control systems such as Allen Bradley, GE 90/30 or other PLC/OEM brands. One of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce your plant's operational expenses is to have a good control and capacity management system for your air compressors.

One of the easiest and most cost effective ways to save money is by significantly reducing your plant’s compressor expenses. Connell Industries has the expertise and experience needed to design and build a customized, network based PLC control system that can replace your older and in most cases, obsolete compressor controls. We can upgrade the controls for all the major compressor OEM’s such as Ingersoll Rand, Gardner Denver, Atlas Copco and others.

Connell’s controls systems use all the major PLC suppliers such as Allen Bradley, GE, Siemens, Beckhoff, etc. The advantage of a new PLC controls system is that you get the precise management and sequencing needed to prevent compressors from running unloaded or half loaded, or even worse, allowing extra compressors to needlessly run “just in case the system might need more air.”

By making your compressor more intelligent, you will have an optimized, reliable and responsive system that supplies the right amount of air directly in proportion to the demand. This in turn reduces compressor and systems room power consumption, maintenance labor and spare parts expense, saving you money as well as minimizing your environmental footprint. And since a new compressor PLC controls system saves electricity, it may qualify for a local utility energy rebate incentive program which will significantly defray your original purchase cost and improve the payback on your capital investment.

Our custom designed and manufactured compressor control systems will:

  • Replace your obsolete compressor controls with a network-based PLC control system
    We use all of the major programmable logic controller manufacturers for our control systems. This ensures that we will have a PLC system to match your plant’s PLC manufacturer preference. Thus reducing maintenance training and support equipment expenses for software, cables, and manuals.
  • Provide overall compressor system capacity controls based upon your actual air demand
    Your Connell Industries compressor capacity system will be able to match the output of compressed air to your actual plant’s compressed air demand. Your compressors will no longer idle away needlessly or half-loaded, burning through hundreds of your hard earned dollars by the hour. In addition, additional savings can be realized by lower cooling tower energy demands from a reduced compressor load.
  • Lower your overall compressor system’s maintenance and utility costs
    By only running the compressors you need, when you need them your overall maintenance costs will be reduced. Wear and tear on the compressor compression and rider rings, intake and discharge valves and valve actuators are all significantly reduced.
