Top tip: Diagnose common compressed air problems in 10 minutes

aircheck your compressed air system

You might think that your compressed air system is all in good order, but it’s possible that it could be better. A non-intrusive visual inspection of the compressed air system, including pipework, ancillaries, drains, and even the room itself, can all be quickly checked and can usually reveal a way to save energy, money or increase ISO compliance.
