Energy efficiency tip of the day (Compressed air system Energy saving Low-cost opportunities)

To conserve energy and cut costs, you can consider the following Low-cost opportunities:

  1. Institute compressed air management (meter use by end-users (especially the main users or main network branches, calculate costs per user, ask users to justify use).
  2. Eliminate as many hoses and couplings as possible to reduce leakage opportunities.
  3. Use the coolest possible intake air (consider outside air).
  4. Discharge air-cooled compressors outside in summer and inside in winter.
  5. Investigate recapturing heat rejected by compressors.
  6. Ensure the system is dry to prevent leaks from corrosion and winter freeze-ups.
  7. Install sequence controls for compressors used in parallel. For example, for partial loads, use the reciprocating compressor and shut down the screw compressor.
