Why you can't afford an old air compressor

February, 13 2020

Maintaining the efficiency of a compressed air system is a constant battle, with leaks, lost efficiency, oil or water ingress and increasing power bills being a considerable source of the problem. 

Compressed air systems consume 10% to 15% of all industrial electricity. And yet, compressed air is an inefficient form of energy – 90% of the input energy used is discharged as waste heat. This is not only costly from a sustainability standpoint – wasting energy means wasting money. Over a 10-year period, electricity costs make up 76% of a factory’s operating costs. In many cases, the electricity used by a compressed air system in a factory makes up the largest percentage of an increasingly expensive electricity bill.

Planned shutdowns are essential in making sure that equipment is operating efficiently, it’s also a great way to extend the life of your equipment. But it’s not just larger businesses that can benefit from a planned maintenance and shutdown period. Workshops, panel and paint, manufacturing facilities and more can all see the rewards from taking time to ensure their plant and equipment like air compressors are looked after so you don’t see any unexpected breakdowns.

Compressed air quality standards

November, 27 2019

If you work in a business that manufactures food and beverages, pharmaceuticals or electronics and you require the use of compressed air then you will no doubt know the importance of having high quality compressed air on hand. Compressed air can contain unwanted substances like oil and water, so it’s important that the compressed air you’re using is up to the required standard for the job. Poor quality compressed air can affect operations and, depending on where you’re using the compressed air, these unwanted substances can impair your production results, staff health and end up costing you more money.
