Of all the energy used for generating compressed air, a large part of it is not used for a variety of reasons. The first place to start minimising the waste is to assess your air system, preferably twice a year. This can range from a simple visual inspection to a complete air audit. Air leakages are one of the biggest sources of energy loss for many compressed air users. Performed by our energy consultants, an Airscan audit can identify waste and knock thousands off your energy bill.
