In an average industrial compressed air system, 30% of energy is wasted.
On top of that, compressed air is about 7 to 8 times more expensive than electricity.
Not many people realize it – but compressors use huge amounts of energy. It simply takes a lot of energy to compress air. And because compressed air is so expensive, we need to do everything we can to not waste it.
A single compressor can easily waste $10k per year in energy costs.
Yes 'waste'. Not 'use'.
It means you can run this same compressor and create the same amount of compressed air, while using less energy.
Luckily, we can take some easy steps to reduce the waste.
On a medium size compressed air system, the yearly energy savings can add up to $10.000 to $30.000 per year!
Here are some of the most notorious energy wasters in your compressed air system:
- Air leaks
- Pressure drop
- Inappropriate use
- Artificial demand
- Inefficient air production
In this section of my website I will teach you how to save money on compressed air running costs!
It's not difficult to save thousands of dollars per year!
