How to make compressed air generation less expensive and more sustainable
This webinar will highlight several best practices for making your compressed air system more energy efficient and reducing carbon footprint.
Topics covered include eliminating air leaks, reducing unloaded running hours, heat recovery, reducing the pressure band, making the most of modern technology, correct sizing, how controllers and maintenance affect energy consumption, and more.
Compressed air is an efficient method of powering machines, tools and devices and is an essential utility used in virtually all industrial processes. So ubiquitous is the use of compressed air in industry that generating it accounts for almost 3% of all electricity consumption in the United Kingdom.
Making the generation of compressed air more efficient can go a long way to reducing a company’s carbon footprint but can also give a competitive edge by reducing energy bills and production costs.
Many compressed air users do not realise the enormous potential for energy savings that can be made by improvements to their compressed air systems, in fact, some companies waste up to 50% of the power required for compressed air generation, through leaks, inefficient system design or using obsolete equipment.
As well as reapplying good practice to compressed air system design, there have been significant advances in compressed air technology that can reduce energy consumption and provide impressive payback times when applied to existing, older installations.
Oliver Kent, Product Manager at Atlas Copco Compressors, talks through how to design more efficient compressed air systems, reduce existing inefficiencies and how to apply the latest advances in compressed air technology with the objective of:
• Reducing your production costs
• Increasing your competitive edge,
• Learn how to make a meaningful contribution to a cleaner environment.
