Nine Areas of Compressed Air Systems Optimisation Opportunities Based on International Case Studies

Abstract

The author presents and quantifies the nine most common areas of feasible energy management opportunities of an average sized compressed air system based on his experience conducting 55 compressed air systems optimization assessments in 16 countries.

Each of the nine areas of opportunity is prioritised and showcased, with interesting case studies and revealing examples from around the world.  The reader is presented with a unique perspective, which could be generalised and replicated to optimize compressed air systems in order to achieve financially attractive results.
