Kaeser Know How is a blog for the compressed air user in New Zealand where you can find a wealth of knowledge as well as advice and tip and tricks that could help you plan, design and operate an optimised and efficient compressed air system.
Quick tip: How to energy efficiently ensure the correct air pressure at the air connection
What do you do if your compressed air pressure is too low at the take-off point in your system? Do you just set the station pressure 1 bar higher to compensate? In this blog post we identify how you can get the correct pressure at the air connection while avoiding this costly pitfall.
In this blog post we discuss what compressed air contracting is and the benefits you could realise by selecting this option - especially in the current climate where many CapEx budgets are constrained thanks to COVID-19.
In designing a compressed air station one of the most common questions we get asked is - should the dryer be installed before or after the air receiver? There is actually no right or wrong answer as each layout has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. In this blog post we discuss the pros and cons of both options and provide some examples of when each configuration may be most beneficial.
Two fundamental requirements of compressed air equipment used in the mining sector will be ongoing operational reliability and safety. Selecting high quality equipment to initially meet these requirements is a great start, however it is only part of the story when it comes to continually meeting these requirements. In this blog post we look at 3 key factors that will play a large role in ensuring the on-going reliability and safety of compressed air equipment.
