STAGE WISE ENERGY SAVINGS FOR A COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEM

ENERGY SAVINGS

Leaks cost big money, compressed air systems are widely used throughout the industries and if not maintained and audited on a regular basis, are bound to have leakages which can contribute significantly to the facilities cost of energy.Thus, it is essential to address this problem through the development of a comprehensive leak management program. These cost saving radiate out in the form of possible cost reductions of 25-50% and hence result in higher profit margins for the company.

DEW POINT IN COMPRESSED AIR

DEW POINT IN COMPRESSED AIR

Dew point is defined as temperature to which a gas (ex. air) must be cooled, at constant pressure, for water vapor to begin to condense to liquid water. In other words when the dew point temperature has been reached, the gas is fully saturated with water vapor. The term ‘pressure dew point refers to the Dew point temperature of a gas at pressures higher than atmospheric Pressure.

THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF COMPRESSED AIR

Understanding the environmental aspects of compressed air is an important part of the energy saving process. To produce compressed air is a very inefficient process, only 5-6% of the total power input is converted to usable mechanical energy. That makes it easier to understand why compressed air generally is the most expensive media a company uses consequently, what appears as minor compressed air savings are in reality substantial power savings.

THE COST & PRODUCTION OF COMPRESSED AIR

Leaks are like a wallet with a hole in it. Leaks translate into cold cash. Allowing leaks to exist without leak identification and repair program will add a hidden cost to the products your company produces which can negatively impact the ability of the company to compete and affect profitability. The time to stop them is now.

OPTIMIZING COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEM

OPTIMIZING COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEM

Compressed air is a critical energy source for many industrial applications, providing mechanical motion, cooling, pressurization and other functions for such equipment as air powered hand tools, actuators, and sophisticated pneumatics robotics. Although it is often viewed as an essentially free resource, Compressed air is anything but free. In fact in many industrial plants, air Compressors consumes more energy than any other single end use.
