Parker Air Saver Unit Valve Reduces
Energy Use in Air Blow Applications

Pulsing technology reduces air consumption by up to 50%

parker-air-saver-seriesParker's Air Saver Unit is a valve that converts a continuous air blow to a pulsed air blow without the need for any other external control. Air is blown with a series of ON and OFF pulses. When the blow is OFF, there is no air consumption. By using switching valve technology the Air Saver Unit can reduce air consumption by up to 50%, which translates into:

  • Large reductions in air consumption.
  • Savings in compressor power consumption.
  • Reduction in plant CO2 emissions.
  • Big contribution to energy-saving activities.
  • Improved efficiency.

When you consider that air blowing accounts for up to half of all compressed air used in plants, the potential energy and cost savings is considerable. In the example outline below, the application of Air Saver Unit valve on four nozzles with a one minute below per four minute cycle operating for three shifts, five days per week saved plant operators $3,500 annually.

parker-air-saver-videoThe reduction in air consumption doesn't necessarily mean a decrease in blow performance, which a one-minute video on Parker's website demonstrates. Applications that benefit from a high performance air blow with lower energy expenditure include:

  • Cleaning blows before assembly
  • Swarf removal
  • Ionizer dust removal
  • Cooling and drying applications
  • Liquid removal after the manufacturing process
  • PET bottle transfer
