Manjushree Technopack, a plastics products manufacturer with multiple plants across India, has taken up energy conservation across their plants as a goal and wants to improve their equipment performance while consuming less energy (fuel, power, etc).
Compressors play a significant role in many industrial processes. Hence, they also consume a large part of a manufacturing plants energy. Manjushree faced the same challenge.
In their research on methods to improve equipment performance and reduce energy consumption, team Manjushree came across EcoAxis’s cloud-based, IoT-enabled analytics solution – axisCONSERVE 4.0.
Because compressors are vital to their plastic production processes, they took the proactive step of monitoring one of their compressors under a pilot energy eﬃciency program.
They decided to deploy axisCONSERVE 4.0 on one of their 250kW compressors to assess its impact. With the help of this advanced solution, they were able to:
- Gain valuable real-time data
- Identify areas for improvement
- Implement targeted measures
- Enhance the overall performance of the compressor
With the power of this cloud-based analytics solution with IoT capabilities, team Manjushree has unlocked a new level of operational excellence in their facility while making significant savings by reducing their energy footprint.
Over and above, axisCONSERVE 4.0, oﬀers beneﬁts as follows:
- Real-time data collection enabled them to detect that the speciﬁc energy consumption of the compressor was below standards
- The operating team took steps to improve a performance and use of the compressor
This has resulted in savings of approximately 335 units of energy per day for delivered average ﬂow of 920 CFM
