In this blog we look at the typical causes of low pressure and how they can be resolved.
If the pressure is too low at point of use it may be tempting to turn to a quick fix - that being to just set the station pressure 1 bar higher. However, this is problematic! Every pressure increase of 1 bar increases the energy consumption of the compressor station by 6% and, it also sharply increases the leakage rate. With the energy costs attached to running a typical compressed air system accounting for nearly three quarters of its lifetime costs, reducing unnecessary energy wastage is therefore key to keeping these costs to a minimum. It is therefore advisable to first identify the causes of low pressure at the point of use and then consider the appropriate measures to take.
There may be a number of reasons why the pressure is too low at point of use. Common culprits are hoses, quick couplings and pressure regulators. However, there are three areas which should be assessed in order to fully determine the cause and implement an appropriate solution;
