“The more I use your product, the more I like it & I really didn’t know I had such a need in the first place… [..] a business running several tools at once, this is a must in order to keep a compressor running like new. “
A North Carolina electronics manufacturing and assembly facility supplied the air network with multiple reciprocating piston air compressors and experienced fluctuation in the air network pressure which increased the run cycles for the pumps. The company suspected that the high amount of wasted components and excessive energy energy costs were related to the varying pressure in the compressed air network. The network consisted of two reciprocating air compressors, one 3.5 Hp and other 5 Hp and the air pressure fluctuated between 104 psi and 138 psi.
The Installation: Time and Effort
Each air compressor required the installation of Compressor Controller Model R1. The total installation for both took 1 hour and 24 minutes and required two sets of additional valves: 1 vent valve NO ⅛”NPT with 1/16” orifice, and a 1 drainage valve NC ¾”NPT with 1/8” orifice to be installed on each compressor.
The main Results:
The client’s existing house water supply consists of two well pumps and four 1200 gallon water storage tanks. It is presently driven by PLC, relays and switch control that does not perform the job autonomously and must be constantly monitored. The client does not feel as if the water system will work properly if they leave for an extended period of time because he has found problems within the water system that the PLC has not identified. He has gained specific knowledge about how the PLC works that cannot be conveyed to others with assurance so feels trapped into nursing the PLC.
The client would like to expand the water storage by adding a 3000 gallon water storage tank that will provide backup water to the existing storage and has zero confidence that the PLC can handle this addition. He has the goal of replacing the PLC with an autonomous system that he can leave unattended with full confidence of consistent operation including with the upgrade of an additional storage tank.
The SAM Solution: Artificial Intelligence Water Pump Control
The client has a need for a custom configured water pump controller that will autonomously control 4 pumps and a transfer valve(s), are controlled by 2 level sensors and one pressure sensor.
Water Pump Controller, custom configuration for 4 Pump control + Transfer Valve in following configuration:
