We Help Customers Achieve Superior Productivity Through Energy Saving


An interview with Mr. Li Jue, Aftermarket National Technical Support Manager-Compressor Technique, Atlas Copco China/Hongkong

Compressed air is an important resource in the modern industrial production process but also consumes a large amount of energy consumer in production enterprises. According to research, energy consumed for air compression use accounts for about 10% of all electricity used for industrial purposes since compressed air is applied extensively in almost all industrial fields. Over the whole life span of a compressor, its energy consumption accounts for over 75% of its total lifecycle costs, yet about 30% of the energy consumed has been unnecessary, which means that energy-saving for compressors is becoming essential. 

For a large production enterprise such as FCI Dongguan, the electronic connector maker, the non-stop production and the cost of a unit product are the two key considerations to ensure product supply and competitiveness in the marketplace. 

In order to help FCI Dongguan meet its demand for persistent and effective reduction of energy consumption, Atlas Copco provided an AIROptimizer, a product providing optimization solutions for energy consumption. It works out the best solution for optimizing energy consumption and making the best use of the electric and air feed pipeline systems.   

"Using Atlas Copco's energy saving solutions, we have reduced our energy consumption by approximately 20% in 2005 and 2006.  This year is the third consecutive year for us to use their services and we believe we can achieve our energy-saving goals with their professional services." Mr. Zhang Wenhua, Equipment Manager of FCI (Dongguan) Connector Co., Ltd said.
