Contrary to what some might think, compressed air is not free. In fact, for the energy it takes to produce it to what is generated as a result, it is often considered the most expensive utility in a typical manufacturing facility. To add to the problem, the U.S. DOE notes that more than 50% of all compressed air systems have energy-efficiency problems. Air compressor experts have also estimated that as much as 30% of compressed air generated is lost via leaks in the compressed air system. In this eHandbook, you'll learn how to:
- Understand your current compressed air system, before building anew
- Use technology to take the pressure off system operators, maintenance, and production
- Combat common compressed air supply problems
- Use airborne ultrasound to identify leaks and reap big savings
