Whilst our energy calculator gives you a rough estimate of how much energy you could save, our FREE EPC can give you a more accurate estimation of your potential savings. The report will also be explained in detail by one of our sales engineers and you will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions!
So what's an EPC? The EPC focuses on the power usage of the compressors, load v. unload hours, and average leak assessment, which results in a potential calculation, identifies if stage 2 is recommended, and will highlight real, tangible savings.
Upon his or her visit, our engineer may recommend to opt for a level 2 or 3 audit, based on your EPC or/and airCHECK report.
So how is this different from an EPC or an airCHECK? Where level 2 shows a potential for energy savings, level 3 is about fitting current logging equipment to each compressor which will record then map the energy consumed over a full week period, showing the actual running hours and calculated air usage. Based on this data we are able to calculate a realistic energy savings potential, make simulations and provide recommendations to achieve optimal energy efficiency. This service is free of charge!
If required, a full AIRScan will be quoted. This service covers a range of parameters, such as flow testing, air leak detection, air quality testing, measurement and analysis of pressure and dew point throughout your whole system, from compressor room to production processes. Included in AirScan is reporting and discussions of the most suitable methods to reduce your energy costs and CO2 emissions. Note that this audit almost always pays for itself in savings. AIRScan follows the ISO 11011 standard for compressed air energy efficiency assessments. This ensures that your installation is assessed based on a clearly defined framework. The AIRScan can also serve as a benchmark for ISO 50001.
