FS-Elliott Co., LLC, a leading manufacturer of centrifugal air and gas compressors, was recently named a finalist for Plant Engineer’s 2014 Product of the Year Award for their R1000 Control System. As the newest addition to FS-Elliott’s Regulus control system line, the R1000 represents a generation shift in compressor control with a focus on ease of operation, energy efficiency, and product reliability.
Featured on FS-Elliott’s Polaris+ line of centrifugal compressors, the R1000 is the only control system in the industry to feature a 9-inch, full touchscreen display as standard. Advanced control modes including Ambient Compensation Control, Pressure Band Optimization and Integrated Compressor Control, enable operators to reduce waste and decrease their facilities energy consumption.
The R1000 provides operators and service technicians with instant notifications based on pre-determined events, alarms, and compressor trips. These proactive notifications minimize downtime, serve as maintenance reminders, and provide operators with a better understanding of the overall health of their compressed air system.
“We are honored to receive this recognition and would like to thank Plant Engineering for selecting the R1000 Control System as a finalist for their 2014 Product of the Year,” states Michael Cobak, Manager of Engineering Services. “The R1000 sets a new standard for compressor control systems, as it will provide the vast majority of operators that utilize the R1000’s advanced feature set with significant energy savings over traditional control technology,” explains Cobak.
For the past 26 years, Plant Engineering has nominated companies that introduce new products and services designed to assist plant managers in performing their job in a safer and more efficient manner for their Product of the Year Award. In Plant Engineering’s November issue, subscribers will be invited to place their votes for the 2014 Product of the Year. Winners will be announced January 2015, and awards will be presented during the 2015 Engineering Awards in Manufacturing dinner.
