Air preparation combination unit MSE6-D2M

Save energy in compressed air systems: the MSE6-D2M will do it for you automatically! MSE6-D2M monitors consumption, shuts off compressed air at times when production is inactive, and reduces the pressure to 0 bar. For a second compressed air line, you can connect it to the new MSE6-C2M or to a CPX terminal.

Manufacturing with the best energy balance

The energy efficiency module MSE6-E2M constantly monitors the compressed air consumption, shuts off the compressed air after a defined waiting period during production-free times and reduces the system pressure to 0 bar. The module can be connected to the MSE6-C2M or to an CPX terminal for a second string - without additional fieldbus nodes.

Return on investment after only 1 to 1.5 years

Assuming a machine produces in two-shift operation 250 days per year with a compressed air consumption of 2,000 l/min at 6 bar and a leakage rate of 10%. If the compressed air is not shut off during the 4,000 hours of non-production time, 48,000 Nm³ is simply lost. An expensive luxury that costs you 912 euros and 3.2 t of CO2emissions. By switching off the system during non-production times using the MSE6-D2M, you can easily save yourself these costs.
And since additional functions such as classic MS6-LR, pressure regulators, MS6-EE on/off valves, SPAU pressure sensors and SFAM flow rate sensors are integrated in the energy efficiency modules, the payback period is further reduced. Especially considering the costs of a regular manual leak search.
The bottom line is that a more conscious use of compressed air pays for itself in less than 1 to 1.5 years.

Example calculation:

  • Compressed air costs: €0.019/Nm³
  • Consumption of the machine: 2,000 l/min
  • Production/day: 16 h
  • Production/year: 250 d
  • Leakage rate: 10%
  • Working pressure: 6 bar

10% at 2,000 l/min* = 2,000 l/min ( fi = 0.2 Nm³/min )

Non-production time
(365 d · 24 h) - (250 · 16 h) = 4,760 h
4,760 h - 760 h** = 4,000 h (240,000 min)

Leakage during non-production time (at 6 bar)
0.2 Nm³/min 240,000 rpm = 48,000 Nm³

Savings during non-production time
when the pressure is switched off
48,000 Nm³ · 0.019 €/Nm³ = €912
