Save On Energy Costs With a VSD Compressor

Variable speed drive compressors can reduce energy consumption by up to 30%. This can be extremely beneficial to those businesses looking to cut down on their energy costs. Unlike standard fixed-speed air compressors, VSD compressors supply air on demand as and when you need it. They produce the exact amount of air required for your operations for maximum efficiency.

There is no need to unload a VSD air compressor as they are able to start and stop under system pressure. Many industries can benefit from variable speed drive technology, including automotive, food and beverage,  medical and manufacturing industries. VSD compressors are a great way to meet demand and minimise costs.

VSD Air Compressor FAQs

You can learn more about our variable speed drive air compressors in our frequently asked questions. If you have any further questions about VSD compressors or any of our other products or services, don’t hesitate to call us.

Are VSD air compressors more energy efficient?

Yes. If applied correctly, variable speed compressors can lower energy costs. However, if installed in the wrong environment, they may not be a worthwhile investment due to potentially increased repair costs. If you want to reduce your energy costs, contact us, and a member of our team will be happy to consult you on the best air compressor solution for you.

How is a variable speed drive compressor different?

Unlike other air compression systems, a variable speed drive compressor works on demand, meaning it only uses power as and when required. When a VSD compressor is not being used, it can be entirely switched off, preventing unnecessary energy consumption.

Do I need a VSD air compressor?

Your unique requirements will determine which air compression system will work best for you. Depending on the environment, a VSD compressor may not be able to function optimally. For those whose compressed air demands change regularly, using a fixed-speed compressor can waste energy, creating unnecessary costs. This is where a VSD compressor would come in useful.
