Since energy saving is one of the biggest technology drivers, CS Instruments intends to gain maximum out of it
Could you brief us about your business?
Compressed air is an essential energy resource within industries. In Germany, about 60,000 plants use compressed air. Although compressed air is one of the most expensive energy resources to be used, industries use up to 40 per cent more than required.
The Fraunhofer Institut, Karlsruhe states that many compressed air systems are outdated and can’t feed the daily demand or are in need of a maintenance program. Leak curring programs alone could save up to € 200 million in electricity costs and contribute with a CO2 reduction of 1.7 million tons per year.
Beside these problems many companies have a problem with condensation in the compressed air lines. To avoid these problems, driers mainly refrigeration driers and desiccant driers are used. In case of refrigeration dryers the compressed air is cooled down to typically 2 to 5° C, the excessive water drops out and is discharged via a condensate drain. Adsorption dryers extract the humidity from the compressed air by means of adsorption. In this case the desiccant adsorbs the moisture. Depending on the degree of saturation the desiccant is regenerated in a desorption phase.However, also the most reliable refrigeration dryers may no longer be able to drain the condensate due to overload, due to defective or polluted condensate drains. A frequent phenomenon in case of adsorption dryers is the ‘flooding’ of the desiccant which leads to a complete exchange of the desiccant.
What are the main target sectors for your business?
The main target sectors comprises of divisions that produce air and gas. Nearly every company which has a production facility and uses compressed air is our potential customer. That means automotive manufacturers such as BMW, VW, Mercedes Benz, Porsche, etc. use our instruments to have an optimal compressed air line.
Pharmaceutical companies, electronic companies, hospitals, chemical companies in need of good quality compressed air and gas are also our potential clients.
Additionally, CS Instruments is one of the leading companies for measuring instruments for compressed air and gas. Therefore, nearly all the big companies dealing with compressors, filters, driers are our potential clients.
