EnergAir has published a free guide to reducing costs in compressed air systems. Billed as an 'insider's report' the brochure Challenge Convention in Compressed Air details several ways to improve the energy efficiency of compressed air systems.
Aimed at plant managers, site maintenance managers, energy managers amd others, the intention is to help address preconceived ideas about compressed air generation (one of the major energy costs to industry) that are currently the cause of huge amounts of energy wastage and unnecessary expenditure; the alternatives can add literally tens of thousands on the bottom line.
Peter Tomlins of EnergAir UK states: "The industry needs to challenge convention on compressed air in order to realise the savings that can be made."
As an 'independent adjudicator' on the compressed air equipment debate, EnergAir says it can provide vital knowledge regarding the purchasing and integration of variable-speed compressors, compressor sizing and balancing system pressure, providing visibility of actual energy consumption and monitoring savings when changes are made - information that would not normally be available to individual plant and maintenance managers.
The brochure also contains real examples of how savings have been made by leading UK manufacturers such as Britvic, and the equipment used to achieve those savings. The guide also aims to dispel some myths about how much difference new equipment can make without being properly integrated, and it offers advice on how to get the best from an existing compressor installation.
EnergAir's guide to reducing the running costs of compressed air systems is available in paper format free from the company and as a PDF to download from its website.
