Energy Efficiency

    Energy management is crucial for all compressed air users, as the highest cost factor of a compressor is the energy to run it. Over a period of five years, energy accounts for roughly 80% of the total costs.

    However, this high percentage of energy use also means that there is potential for high cost savings, but before savings can be calculated the present energy usage need to be established typical by an “air audit”.

    Air audits can be as simple or as comprehensive as you require.

    The compressed air audit may also identify if you need to switch to a new, more efficient machine, carry out further system improvements or pipework upgrades or if your compressor requires better control. We can then advise on any improvements that can be made to your system to help reduce leaks and, save money.

    THE BIG 5
    1 Air demand & supply
    Make sure you have the right compressors to meet your demand efficiently.
    2 Check for leaks
    Air leaks are a costly waste of energy and money.
    3 Avoid over pressurisation
    More pressure means more energy and increased risk of leaks, consider your requirements. Lowering system pressure may solve a lot of problems.
    4 Inefficient Piping
    Old piping, incorrect sizing, too many bends and tees reduces the efficiency of your compressed air system.
    5 Maintain your system
    Change Air/oil filters, separators and lubricants at the optimum time, not when they clog up and cause a pressure loss or damage to your compressor system.
