line of sniffers for compressors
Four XL3000 Sniffers test 288 compressors per hour at a pressure of 8 barA. Helium is injected into the compressor over atmospheric pressure, therefore, within the compressor there is a concentration of 87% during the test.
It is not possible to evacuate the atmospheric pressure in the product since it would extend the cycle time, therefore, connecting the sniffers to a traditional recuperator is not feasible due to the large amount of pure helium necessary to increase the concentration from 87% to 97%. The average monthly spend on helium without recuperator is $ 30,000 USD.
After implementing PURE, we purify the gas coming from the sniffers to a concentration of 97% and it is sent back to the sniffers at a pressure of 8barA, lowering the average monthly cost in helium to $ 4,500 USD.
