Activated carbon adsorber + particulate filter
∎ ACT activated carbon filling
∎ KD particulate filter
∎ ACT+KD Savings
Costs for investment, service (materials, labour and disposal), with the following replacement intervals: ACT activated carbon filling 12,000 operating hours (OH), particulate filter 6,000 OH, activated carbon filter 1,000 OH; annual debt service over 10 years.
Low life-cycle costs
When it comes to continuous compressed air demand, Kaeser ACT activated carbon adsorbers are hands-down winners from a cost perspective compared to typical activated carbon filters. Thanks to significantly longer service intervals, their life-cycle costs in the third year can equal those of high quality activated carbon filters.
In the following years they are by far the more cost-effective alternative. This advantage is further bolstered by better compressed air availability resulting from the lower number of necessary service visits.
