Reduce energy consumption, reduce costs with Energy Recovery units
Energy Recovery solutions are standalone ER units with a small footprint. Installation is simple thanks to the dedicated connection kit, and doesn’t affect a compressor’s serviceability. Available with stainless steel coolers, or cost-effective copper coolers for applications that allow it.
There’s always an Energy Recovery solution that suits your needs and budget.
Why should I care about compressor energy recovery?
Whether to maintain market share or to comply with sustainability standards, sooner or later you have to limit your carbon footprint. Many governments offer financial support for investing in energy efficiency.
What do I lose if I don’t recover my compression heat?
A staggering 94% of the energy an air compressor consumes, is converted into heat. Without Energy Recovery, this costly thermal energy vanishes into the atmosphere via the cooling system and radiation. Energy Recovery can reclaim a large portion of that heat for reuse, resulting in significant savings. The actual savings depend on your compressor installation, air system and waste heat applications.
What does recycling compressor heat mean?
It means you can scale down or eliminate boilers and other equipment that generates heat or steam for industrial processes. You can save on installations, maintenance, energy and carbon emissions. Based on your compressor set-ups, Atlas Copco can determine your possible savings with the Energy Saving Potential Calculator. It shows you how much waste heat you can recover and how much you can save on your total energy bill.
