Energy Saving Tips

Energy Saving Tips

Here are some basic tips, recommended by the British Compressed Air Society, that will save you real money

  • Walk through your factory and identify all compressed air uses and, if possible, the flow and pressure requirements of each.
  • Program to eliminate any inappropriate uses of compressed air.
  • Determine the cost of compressed air for your factory by periodically monitoring the compressor operating hours and load cycle.
  • All equipment in the compressed air system should be maintained in accordance with manufacturers specifications.
  • Set a reasonable target for cost-effective leak reduction – up to 10% of total system flow is typical for industrial applications.
  • Once leaks are repaired re-asses your compressed air system supply.
  • A rule of thumb is that every 2psi increase in operating pressure requires an additional 1% in operating costs of energy.
  • Air flow to unused equipment should be shut-off as far back in the system as possible.
  • Reduce the distance the air travels through the distribution system.
  • Check with the compressor supplier for performance specifications at different discharge pressures.
