Energy saving tip No 19 (Compressed air system intake temperature)

Spread the Knowledge

Tip summary

Take air compressor intake air from the coolest (but not air conditioned) location.
(Every 5 C reduction in intake air temperature would result in 1% reduction in compressor power consumption).

Proposed actions

Review the intake location for your compressed air system.
Plan to conduct the required changes to locate it to the suitable temperature possible to decrease the power consumption.
Economics

Low cost opportunity with a high ROI.
Savings

Estimated energy savings range: 3 % of the overall compressor energy use.
Decrease equivalent amount of CO2 emissions accordingly to save the environment.
Conclusion

Relocating the system intake point can save the compressed air system energy use by 3%.
