Many users will first ask the price when purchasing a compressor. If the price is too expensive, it will not be considered, and most users say that they only want to buy cheap compressors.
According to statistics, the energy consumption of compressors accounts for about 15% of the total electricity consumption of enterprises. In addition, during the preparation of compressed air, approximately 90% of electricity is converted to heat, and only 10% is converted to compressed air. Therefore, it can be seen that the energy consumption of the air compressor is very huge.
When buying a compressor, choose the cheapest one to buy. There is no doubt that this is to save costs and save money. However, when purchasing a compressor, the traditional cost accounted for only 25% of the total cost, while energy consumption accounted for 75%. As we all know, screw compressors have a long service life, generally more than 10 years. If you buy a cheap and energy-saving compressor, the annual power consumption will be very huge.
What you save when buying a machine is just a little bit. If you buy energy-efficient compressors, the price will be higher than ordinary compressors, but can save tens of thousands of electricity bills for enterprises every year. Just like the Simpson permanent magnet inverter compressor, it saves about 30% energy than ordinary compressors. The return on investment is about one year. The electricity cost saved by using it for about one year can be used to buy back the compressor price.
In addition, due to the continuous high-speed operation of the screw compressor, various failures will inevitably occur. Good quality compressors do not guarantee trouble-free problems, but compared to cheap compressors, their failures will be much smaller. Cheap compressors have a high failure rate, are prone to failure, and will require huge maintenance costs when the machine fails.
