FS-Elliott's R1000 control system helps operators control energy costs
FS-Elliott's R1000 control system line introduces new features that are designed to enable plant operators to master one of a facility’s highest operating expenses — energy costs.
The R1000 features Ambient Compensation Control, a local control mode designed to automatically adjust the compressor set point based on changes in ambient conditions. This control feature is engineered to reduce waste by maximizing turn-down and minimizing bypass air. The R1000 employs Pressure Band Optimization to avoid unnecessary discharge by optimizing the amount of air produced based on the minimum pressure required to meet system demand. Integrated Compressor Control adjusts performance by assigning lead and lag machines according to system demand.
The R1000 will come standard on FS-Elliott’s Polaris+ line of centrifugal compressors.
