Energy – Efficiency
Saving energy, preserving our environment – these are keywords of our time. And the words we always keep in mind when developing our products.
Our compressed air motors and agitators are highly efficient products. The underlying radial piston principle is pointing the way for a future in which every bit of energy that is needed is used as economically as possible. Our motors and agitators transforms every bit of energy into the highest performance possible.
By our extensive tests we build a solid knowledge and data platform for our customers. We consciously concentrate on the comparison with the vane motor, which is, despite its extremely wasteful and outdated technique, still in use. And this despite the fact that saving energy has a futher considerable advantage: you save a lot of money. Our results speak for themselves:
Our test compares the air consumption of PTM radial piston motors and vane motors under the same test conditions:
continuous operation, compressor with performance of 10kW, supply quantity 2,5 Nm3/min, compressed air index 80 Wh/Nm3, electricity cost 22ct/kWh, compressed air costs 2,1 ct/Nm3.
using PTM motor 450 instead of vane motor
(both motors appropriate for 30l hobbock)
using PTM motor 1800 instead of vane motor
(both motors appropriate for 200l drum)
using PTM motor 3600 instead of vane motor
(both motors appropriate for 1 000l IBC container)
Automotive supplier puts motor to the acid test
Our customer competely converted his production from vane motors to radial piston motors. He reviewed his decision by means of solid numbers and got groundbreaking results.
Convincing energy test at Germany’s largest paint manufacturer
Radial piston motors are much more effective and powerful than Gast vane motors. Here are the convincing test results:
Statements of our customers
Vane motors first seem to be less expensive due to their lower purchase price. This still leads some companies into the wrong direction. With a simple amortisation calculation, we have proved to all our customers that after not even a year, the radial piston motor is much more efficient solely because of energy cost savings.
The radial piston motor is the best product the market of pneumatic drives offers. An energy-efficient and cost-saving product of high quality. There is definitely no comparable alternative.
