Benefits Of A VSD Driven Gas Booster?
Fixed speed gas booster sets are sized for maximum gas load at maximum pressure differential, but spend the majority of their lives operating at reduced load conditions continually absorbing more power than is necessary. Therefore, it operates at the “back of the performance curve” in turndown condition where the boosted pressure increases, causing higher bearing and gas temperatures, and in some cases surge.
The Utile ‘Smart Drive’ system is designed to sense the variations in gas pressure due to changes in demand and as a consequence adjusts the operating speed to obtain the optimum efficiency and pressure requirement at all times.
The flexibility of the ‘Smart Drive’ system allows it to be used in conjunction with all Utile products in applications where cost and efficiency savings can be achieved. ‘Smart Drive’ operates in single or duty/standby systems, throughout their range of single and multistage gas boosters and positive displacement gas compressors, often reducing the need for costly gas cooling systems.
