Compressed Air System Modeling and Simulation

Air System Modeling & Simulation is the capstone of Ingersoll Rand's suite of System Optimization services. Applying our deep knowledge of system dynamics created from over 100 years of compressed air expertise, Ingersoll Rand generates an electronic model of the entire compressed air system, from compressors and accessories on the supply side, through the piping distribution network, and down to Point of Use consumer devices. Compressed Air systems are dynamic - ever changing with time - and through the advancements of Air System Modeling & Simulation (ASMS), Ingersoll Rand can collaborate with customers to understand their compressed air system like never before.

Model Current State System Operation

The process starts by creating an electronic model of the entire system, from the compressor room to the Point of Use.  The model is validated against measured data, ensuring accuracey and predictability.

Understand performance anywhere in the system

Whether it’s a zone of the plant with persistant pressure problems, a desire to know the relative consumption of various devices, or changes to the factory - such as a plant expansion, contraction, or change in process - can be simulated in the model.   The future system design can be designed for optimal performance and efficiency electronically, reducing the risk of poor results after construction.

Evaluate multiple alternatives

Multiple future state interations can rapidly be simulated inside ASMS, allowing Ingersoll Rand to collaborate with customers to consider multiple scenarios for the system design or modfication.  The costs, performance, and efficiencies of each option can be weighed, allowing customers to make smart choices to achieve their business goals.

Ongoing Validation

Air System Modeling & Simulation allows Ingersoll Rand to validate system performance on an ongoing basis, identifying tuning requirements or system changes - ensuring that your system continues to deliver optimal performance through the total lifecycle.
