In this article, published on the website of Compressed Air Best Practices, it is shown how measuring and monitoring the compressed air system, made a global glass bottling and container manufacturing plant achieve its No. 1 goal. Including saving $150,000 per year on its energy bill.

“A global glass container manufacturer in the Netherlands leaves no stone unturned when it comes to product quality, plant uptime and energy conservation. That’s why it upgraded its compressed air system used to produce more than one billion glass bottles and containers per year.

To improve the delivery of compressed air at the plant, which is supplied by low-pressure and high-pressure compressed air systems, the manufacturer took an important first step by using airflow meters to monitor and measure the performance of both systems. Subsequent planning based on actionable data led to a unique compressed air system upgrade that increases the plant’s ability to maintain peak production of high quality glass bottles and containers at all times.”

While saving $150,000 per year in energy costs.

The project also delivered a payback of less than 2 years.
