Compressed Air Optimisation

While compressed air systems are easy to set up and operate, running them efficiently can be challenging.

Our Experience

Save up to 50% of energy costs

Free up capacity

Defer capital spend on new compressors

Reduce noise pollution in the factory

Compressed air systems often consume up to 7% of electricity use in manufacturing, or even over 30% in shipyards. In addition, the efficiency is rarely monitored, energy is nearly 80% of total compressor operating costs, and compressed air is easily wasted. This makes them a great target for energy savings.

There is a good opportunity to:

Compressed air systems can be generally separated into Supply-Side and Demand-side.

Optimising the supply-side means a focus on generating the compressed air at the right quality (dryness, particulates), the right pressure, and for the least energy possible at all flow conditions. Important things to consider are Compressor types, ongoing monitoring, and system controls.

Optimising the demand-side means ensuring the air is not wasted through leaks, unecessary pressure losses, ‘artificial demand’ or using it inappropriately.

Compressd air systems are simple to set up and run, but much more challenging to run well.
