Compressed air is an expensive utility in your manufacturing plant. We provide you with ten tips how to lower compressed air consumption and thereby save energy.
1. Shut off sections and machines that you do not use
A simple manual or motorized valve can save you thousands of euros/dollars. Make sure that air is not lost through leaks or machines standing in idle mode. Flow meters help to determine to which sections air is flowing.
2. Breathe cool, fresh and clean air
A compressor converts 90% of its power into heat. The compressor room heats up, while a compressor uses less energy to compress cold air. 3°C cooler air, already results in 1% energy savings.
