Compressed air is usually one of the most expensive utilities to a business. With the cost of electricity on the rise, understanding how to reduce such compressed air associated operating costs has never been so important. This whitepaper demonstrates the first steps that can be taken in order to reduce compressed air associated operating costs.
This whitepaper considers the importance of meaningful data and the key criteria which should be sought in order to be able to compare quotes - comprehensively, critically and realistically.
In this whitepaper we look at the most common and widely used low pressure system solutions - rotary blowers and screw blowers, in order to ascertain which blower technology is right for optimum energy efficiency.
Different production processes require different quality classes for dry compressed air, so it’s advisable to identify the best and most cost-effective solution for your specific application. The expert tips and tricks presented in this whitepaper, will go a long way toward avoiding unnecessary frustration – and costs.
As a food or beverage manufacturer or processor you must meet stringent air quality standards when it comes to the production of compressed air in your manufacturing or processing facility. In this whitepaper we discuss why compressed air needs to be treated and some of the technologies that can be utilised in order to meet the most stringent of compressed air quality standards.
The low-pressure segment comprises a range of applications that are well-served by numerous compression principles. As to which principle is best and most future-viable differs for each individual case - yet the general principles presented here should provide valuable assistance in helping make these important decisions.
Compressed air is a vital utility in the automotive aftermarket industry. That said, its impact on workflow, product quality and energy bills can often be overlooked. This can mean costly rework as a result of poor air quality affecting paint jobs and workflow interruptions due to inadequate air supply both causing real dollar losses in terms of rework costs and inflated energy bills. However unlike other utilities, the end user has complete control over their compressed air system.
In this whitepaper which we look at three key factors which can assist a WWTP in optimising the efficiency and reliability of their blower aeration process.
The different types of technology available for generating compressed air are many and varied: rotary lobe blowers, rotary screw blowers and turbo blowers, to name but a few. With a wealth of options on offer, operators looking to purchase reliable and long-lasting equipment for applications such as wastewater treatment would be well advised to consider the matter very carefully from an engineering perspective before making a decision.
The extensive automation characteristic of modern production methods in the pharmaceutical industry makes compressed air a vitally important energy carrier. Supply failure can result in expensive downtime whilst inefficiencies in production and distribution can mean unnecessarily high costs. As a whole, this series illuminates design and implementation principles for ensuring an efficient, reliable and cost effective compressed air supply – which is often possible without major effort. Part 1 provides an overview and introduction to topics covered in more detail in the following parts.
A great deal can often be achieved with just a few measures to increase efficiency and cost savings of the compressed air supply. The second part of this series describes the key points to observe in the process of renovating an existing or planning a new system, and provides some tips on optimisation.
Turbo, reciprocating or rotary screw compressors, or blowers? Which compressors are the right ones? And how can they best be combined to achieve maximum efficiency of the compressed air supply? The third part of this series answers these questions whilst also demonstrating how the use of heat recovery can yield cost savings.
Different production processes require different compressed air treatment solutions, so it’s advisable to invest some time considering a few key points in this area in order to identify the best and most cost-effective solution. To better understand your compressed air treatment and condensate drainage options we therefore look at these key points in more detail in the fourth part of this series.
Once demand, qualitative compressed air requirements and station components have been determined, it’s time to consider the installation of the compressed air station and distribution system. Part 5 of this series of whitepapers, highlights the most important factors to observe when installing a compressed air system in the pharmaceutical industry.
The final part of the 'compressed air in the pharmaceutical industry' series describes how compressors are efficiently combined, outlines the alternatives to the operator model, and presents an overview of features such as predictive maintenance.
Here we discuss the latest refrigeration dryer technologies that simultaneously save both energy and space, lowering overall costs and guaranteeing an effective, reliable supply of compressed air. The place of future-proof refrigerants are also considered.
With 25 percent on average, of the compressed air produced by a typical compressed air system being lost to leaks, a compressed air system needs regular attention if it is to operate at its optimum efficiency and cost effectively day in and day out. Here, on-going compressed air leak detection and management plays a key role.
