Why Choose Variable Speed?

As the majority of businesses have a variable demand for compressed air, variable speed compressors have proven to be superior to fixed speed compressors when it comes to reducing the energy costs. By matching the air supply to the air demand, unload losses are avoided, and energy costs reduced on average by 30%.

Why Do I Need Energy Efficiency?

Energy costs represent about 70% of the total operating cost of your compressor over a 5-year period. Therefore reducing the energy consumption of your compressed air installation should be a major focus to ensure the lowest cost of ownership.

Why Invest in CPVS PM (Permanent Magnet)?

In the CPVS PM range we have combined our Imperium variable speed technology with our new and highly efficient drivetrain with iPM motor technology. This evolved the energy efficiency of variable speed compressors to a new level, resulting in energy savings of up to 45%. Our CPVS 40-50 PM range is also a Plant Engineering 2023 Product of the Year Finalist!
