Top 5 compressed air blog posts for 2019
Sit back, relax and join us in revisiting our top 5 most popular compressed air blog posts from the past year. See you in 2020!
How to cost effectively determine your new compressed air requirements
Bill, a Maintenance Manager of a logistics centre, recently contacted us to price up a new compressed air system. He needed to double his facility’s output and assumed he needed to buy more air compressors to meet the higher demand for compressed air this would create. After a few questions we determined a new compressor might not be necessary. In this blog post we look at the steps taken after Bill’s enquiry that assisted us in not only saving Bill the cost of purchasing new compressors, but also helped him lower his existing energy consumption.
How to take advantage of your Festive Shutdown
In this blog post we look at why some maintenance planning now will allow you to take full advantage of the extended festive shutdown period; plan now to get your larger compressed air service and maintenance jobs completed and any system improvements or upgrades.
Spring clean your compressed air system for a hassle free season
In this blog post we look at how a spring clean can help you keep your compressor running efficiently throughout the warmer months.
The benefits of predictive maintenance and maintenance kits
Would you like to reduce your compressed air associated maintenance costs? Would you also like to know your annual maintenance costs upfront for ease of budget planning and eliminate the risk of unplanned and costly downtime? In this blog post we look at how predictive maintenance and maintenance kits can help you achieve these goals.
The steps and advantages of undergoing a compressed air audit
In this blog post we look at what is involved in a compressed air audit, what the advantages are, and how an audit can greatly assist you in developing a tailored, reliable and efficient compressed air system.
How to detect and fix compressed air leaks
A compressed air system with a minimum amount of leaks will be more energy efficient and more effective. Leak reduction is one of the most cost effective steps you can take to immediately reduce energy costs and improve profitability. In part 2 of our compressed air leaks 101 blog post series we look at the 3 main methods of compressed air leak detection, best practice for fixing leaks and how to manage leaks on an on-going basis.
What are the costs and the culprits of compressed air leaks?
Unfortunately all compressed air systems will have compressed air leaks however did you realise that statistics suggest the average leakage rate is 25%, with some plants losing as much as 80% of their compressed air through leaks!* That’s a lot of wasted compressed air, a lot of wasted energy and a lot of wasted money. In part 1 of our compressed air leaks 101 blog post series we look at what the costs are to a business of compressed air leaks and where the main culprits can be found.
Turn your compressors into an energy source with heat recovery
With winter just around the corner, in this blog post we learn how you can turn your compressors into an energy source by harnessing the power of heat recovery in the fight against rising energy costs.
Mastering your compressed air system for optimum efficiency
In this blog post we look at how integrating an advanced master controller into a compressed air system with multiple compressors can assist users in optimising the systems energy efficiency and highlight the 3 keys ways that advanced master controllers reduce energy consumption.
How to take control of your compressed air associated energy costs
In this blog post we look at 5 considerations that will help you get started on your journey towards optimised compressed air energy efficiency.
