Optimizing Compressed Air Reliability

Abstract

Half of the compressed air produced in industrial systems is typically wasted through leakage, artificial demand and inappropriate use. An energy study or treasure hunt can identify this waste. Eliminating the waste can reduce the number of compressors required, freeing the existing unused compressors to provide backup. Unfortunately, in today’s world of restricted capital availability, very few companies ever check the reliability of their compressed air systems. This presentation will review the simple steps needed to increase systems reliability.
