Digital service significantly reduces compressed-air costs

| By Gerald Ondrey

The Monitoring Box FTMg Premium (photo) is a new digital service for compressed-air monitoring. In addition to continuous monitoring, the Cloud solution from this company’s Field Analytics Portfolio can identify consumption losses due to machine- or process-related inefficiencies and detect leaks at an early stage, reporting them with an alarm. Moreover, the digital service can compare sources of compressed-air consumption on the basis of their consumption and attendant costs and suggest optimization options. The benefits include reduced production costs, a smaller CO2 footprint and more-efficient service planning. With the Monitoring Box FTMg Premium, production planners, energy managers and maintenance engineers can ultimately reduce their company’s compressed-air costs by up to 30%, the company says. — SICK AG, Waldkirch im Breisgau, Germany
