Compressed air engineering handbook

Knowledge is power

Kaeser compressed air engineering handbook

If you are looking to operate an optimised and efficient compressed air system then it is important to have an overall understanding of compressed air as an energy carrier as well as the compressed air system as a whole, the numerous interactions and influences that occur within a system, and how it integrates into the operating system. As they say 'knowledge is power' and in this case having knowledge could save you power!
