Optimize your filter performance with Nederman SAVE

Intelligent airflow control that saves energy, enhances performance and tracks process utilization on new or existing industrial filtration systems

Traditional dust collection systems are designed to operate continuously regardless of whether extraction is required. This leads to wasted energy, increased wear and tear, increased maintenance costs and suboptimal filtration performance. Nederman SAVE tracks the process operation and adjusts fan operation to deliver the required airflow as it is required using the minimum energy required to maintain desired performance.


How does Nederman SAVE work?

Through monitoring machine and process information, SAVE determines the precise amount of airflow and pressure required at each extraction point for effective dust extraction and safe material transport. The fan operation is then adjusted based on the actual operational demand resulting in energy savings, increased combustible dust safety and reduced system wear and tear. The machine data collected by the system can then be used to track machine utilization through Nederman Insight. Nederman SAVE can reduce energy consumption by up to 70% when compared to traditional dust collection systems and delivers additional values in the design, operation and maintenance of dust collection systems. Watch here. 



With the optimized airflow and improved dust collector performance, customers experience a wide range of values with Nederman SAVE. 


Energy Reduction
By reducing the airflow, the fan motor consumes less power significantly reducing energy consumption by up to 70%.


Safety and Reliability
SAVE enhances employee safety and combustible dust compliance with ATEX and NFPA standards through improved extraction and operational monitoring.


Productivity Data
Using the process or machine data collected to maintain proper airflow, SAVE can track machine operation and utilization and visualize the data using Nederman Insight.


Increased capacity
SAVE adjusts fan operation based on actual airflow requirements freeing up capacity within existing systems and reducing the size, footprint and installation cost on new systems.


Reduced maintenance
With reduced airflow, system wear and tear such as abrasion and filter cleaning is also reduced extending component life and decreasing downtime.


HVAC Saving
Reducing the amount of air that is exhausted or extracted at the machines reduces the load on the HVAC system saving energy.


Reduce noise
Lower fan RPM and extraction only when required results in a quieter working environment. Filters will also require less cleaning reducing compressed air pulse or fan noise.

For New or Existing Dust Collection Systems

Retrofit Existing Installations

SAVE is a flexible technology that adapts to most existing dust collection systems including baghouses (reverse air or pulse jet), cartridge collectors, systems with multiple fans and more. In addition to energy saving, retrofits can breathe new life into underperforming systems and or create additional capacity for machine expansion.

New Dust Collection Systems

Including SAVE in the design of your new dust collection allows the system to be optimized from day one. SAVE may allow for smaller system design reducing capital expense, system footprint and creating room for future expansion. With the energy savings and IoT ready technology, you are future proofing your factory and profits.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nederman SAVE

Q: Is Nederman SAVE for new dust collection systems or can it be a retrofit on an existing system?
A: Nederman SAVE can be used on new and most existing systems. For existing systems, SAVE is primarily for optimizing performance including energy savings. For new systems, in addition to the energy savings, the filter can be sized for actual airflow potentially reducing footprint and initial cost.

Q: Can Nederman SAVE be used on other manufacturer’s dust collectors?
A: Yes. SAVE can be implemented on most dust collection systems regardless of who the manufacturer is. Our sales engineers can assess the existing ducting systems, controls, fan and filter and confirm.

Q: Is a Nederman Insight subscription required to track energy savings?
A: Energy savings and data is tracked and accessible via the local SAVE Controller so it is not required. However, Nederman Insight provides an easy to use dashboard that can be accessed remotely to track the energy savings and also the machine utilization of the process. If you already have a connected Nederman SmartFilter, SAVE monitoring can be added to this subscription.

Q: How much energy will I really save?
A: Almost every dust collection system in the world is unique so actual energy savings is dependent on a variety of factors including the process, duct design, motor efficiency and other factors. Average savings for most applications is around 60% and up to 70% is possible. This percentage is just the electrical power consumed by the motors and does not factor in other cost savings related to HVAC, reduced component wear and tear or extended filter life.

Q: Does Nederman SAVE comply with combustible dust regulations?
A: Yes. SAVE complies with ATEX and NFPA recommendations for active monitoring of combustible dust applications. SAVE improves the system’s ability to safely handle combustible dust by monitoring the airflow, pressure and transport velocity in each duct branch. Regular system flushes with all gates open further improve safety over conventional controls. 

Q: Is SAVE only for large complex dust collection systems or can it also benefit small systems?
A: SAVE can be used on large or small systems on processes vary in operation and do not constantly required extraction. Generally speaking, systems that have a 15kW (20 HP) motor or higher are the most common applications for SAVE. 

Q: What is the expected return on investment from Nederman SAVE?
A: The ROI for SAVE will vary based on the application and process however the typical payback resulting from the energy reduction in the dust collection fan motors is less than two years. Additional savings related to HVAC, maintenance and extended component life can further improve the ROI.
