A CPVSM with VSD matches its air delivery to your actual need. That means it is not using – and wasting-energy when your demand for compressed air is lower. Typically, energy savings run in the double digits!
A belt-driven compressor has a higher risk of downtime and maintenance- related costs. Unscheduled belt tensioning and replacement cause productivity losses and there is always the risk of post-service belt misalignment. That is why the CPVSM comes with a gear drive transmission. You have no belts to replace and enjoy lower operating (service) costs. What is more, the CPVSM is 3% more energy efficient compared to belt-driven compressors.
