Application of Atlas Copco XD Heat of compression reactivated adsorption dryers for energy saving in the display industry
Your Saving. My Saving. Let’s Share Energy-saving! -- A Case Study of Anhui Xinhao Plasma Display Devices Co., Ltd
Located in Hefei City, Anhui Xinhao Plasma Display Devices Co., Ltd (Anhui Xinhao) is a state-funded hi-tech enterprise that integrates manufacturing, sales and development of plasma displayer and other new type display products. The company introduced the advanced and mature plasma technology and 4 production lines from Hitachi, managed and operated by a technology and management team composed of elites with years of experience in manufacturing and developing plasma products in the industry in China. At present, Anhui Xinhao is the largest manufacturer of PDP full high-definition plasma displays in China, including series of standard high-definition and full high-definition plasma display modules from 42 inches to 85 inches.
So the Xinhao Project finally selected Atlas Copco zero purge XD adsorption dryers with its sufficient research on applications of heat of compression reactivated adsorption dryers and visits to XD customers and comprehensive evaluation of other brands during the planning and designing period in advance. The project not only adopted a solution of ZH7000 centrifugal compressors combined with XD heat of compression reactivated adsorption dryers in the high-pressure system, but also adopted for the first time a solution of Z oil-free screw compressor combined with XD in the low-pressure system.
This was a right choice. As a unique product provided by Atlas Copco, zero purge heat of compression reactivated adsorption dryers is superior in performance and reliable in operation with patented control technology that can ensure stable dew-point. Compared with the blower dryers, its average energy consumption is reduced by almost over 50%. Such savings can help to basically balance the investment gap in about 1 year. For long term use, it will make more values than the cost. To evaluate the system’s energy-saving effect, Anhui Xinhao agreed to cooperate with Atlas Copco and Hefei General Machinery Research Institute to inspect the entire compressing system in order to get a reliable result. We wish that the system be promoted and used in other projects, helping customers realize their objectives on continuously reducing energy-consumption in practical use and improve product competitiveness to obtain more sales and economic benefits.
In this case, leaders of Anhui Xinhao gave a better interpretation to the true meaning of energy-saving, "At the very beginning we considered how to reduce unit energy consumption of the products, and looked for a reliable energy-saving solution. This cooperation enlightened us. Atlas Copco is not only a leading manufacturer of compressors, but also a supplier of various advanced energy-saving equipments for air compressing, enjoying obvious technological advantages in using compressed heat and providing more guarantees. We hope to realize mutual objectives through wider cooperation."
It can be seen that energy-saving is never a unilateral demand. The best way to save energy is to find a professional solution before making investment. For this kind of win-win energy-saving cooperation, our slogan is: Your saving. My saving. Let’s share energy-saving!
