Put the Heat from Your Air Compressor System to Work for You

Abstract

Energy cost reduction strategies are vital to staying competitive. Did you know that the heat generated by compressed air systems can be a very good source of energy savings? Although the concept has been around for quite some time, heat recovery remains one of the greatest opportunities for untapped energy savings. This presentation will provide heat recovery options and highlight some case studies where the waste heat generated from a compressor can be repurposed to useful applications requiring heat.
