How to optimize your compressed air system?

Let our experts get to work and unlock the savings potential of your full compressed air network!

Green trees - Optimization

Understand your compressed air system

Do you know whether your compressed air system is efficient?
With AIRScan, we inspect your entire air system, from the compressors via the air net to the demand side. Based on these checks, we identify potential savings and recommend actions to achieve these savings.

Repair compressed air leaks

Did you know that up to 20% of the energy consumption in your compressed air system could be lost to air leaks? That’s a lot of money you are blowing away. With RePress, leaks are fixed while the distribution net is under pressure, and without dismantling pipes or couplings.

Upgrade your compressor controls

In a multiple compressor installation, compressor control systems contribute to a more accurate pressure output and reduced energy consumption. Upgrading equipment to our latest technologies invariably results in efficiency improvements.

Recover thermal energy

During air compression, heat is generated. This is diverted to the cooling system and released into the atmosphere. However, this thermal energy can be put to good use. That’s where Energy Recovery comes in. It recovers the heat so it can be used for workspace heating, hot water or industrial processes. Your compressor is “creating” energy. Don’t let it go to waste!

Monitor your compressed air installation

SMARTLINK  enables you to follow up on the performance and service status of all the equipment in your air compressor room. Detailed reports help you keep track of your energy efficiency, also allowing Energy Management according to ISO 50001.

Frequently asked questions

Atlas Copco’s approach focuses on reducing the overall energy bill, which means that we look through your compressed air installation, from compressed air generation to the distribution network and demand. We pinpoint the areas where potential savings can be made. We then advise the appropriate actions to optimize the situation. Improving the energy efficiency of your compressed air installation can save you a lot of money.

Based on the utilization of your compressors and the requirement of thermal energy in your operations, Atlas Copco can determine your possible savings with the Energy Saving Potential Calculator. It shows you how much waste heat you can recover and how much you can save on your total energy bill. Up to 90% of the heat generated by a compressor can be recovered or reused.

Our skilled energy audit engineers carry out an air system energy audit with expertise in identifying areas of loss or inefficiencies within your compressed air system. A detailed report highlights the inefficiencies and provides proposals on how to optimize the performance and energy consumption of your installation. A typical AIRScan identifies tangible measures that results in 25-30% energy savings and a significant amount of CO2 reductions. You run the risk of missing out on a significant reduction of your energy consumption by not having your installation audited by our specialists.

Without a central compressor control system, the load/unload pressure of each compressor can be set to react to changes in air demand. If the system pressure drops, an additional compressor will switch to loaded running. However, the sequence will always be the same, and the advantages of a VSD are not fully put to use. The result: higher pressures than required, too much unloaded running and… a steep energy bill.
