is-compressed-air-pressure-putting-pressure-on-your-bottom-line

IS COMPRESSED AIR PRESSURE PUTTING PRESSURE ON YOUR BOTTOM LINE?

We already know by now that compressed air systems, while critical to our manufacturing processes, are notoriously inefficient by most standards.  Up to 90% of the input energy to a compressor is rejected as heat; which leaves us with the potential for 10% of that input energy to do the actual work of compressed air. We’ve sadly accepted that 30% of that will be lost to leaks, and of the remaining 7%, we’ll lose some to bad applications, and some more to pressure loss across piping, filters and dryers.

how-to-chooose-the-right-air-compressor-for-automotive-part-2

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT AIR COMPRESSOR FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS PART 2

Just like compressed air tools and their activities have use-factors, the proportion of time a tool is used versus the time it isn’t, air compressors have duty-cycles, the proportion of time the air compressor can operate without the risk of overheating and sustaining excessive wear, versus the time the air compressor needs to stop and cool down, before it resumes again.

how-to-chooose-the-right-air-compressor-for-automotive-part-1

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT AIR COMPRESSOR FOR AUTOMOTIVE APPLICATIONS PART 1

Choosing an air compressor can certainly be a challenge,  especially if you don’t have all the necessary information, or are unfamiliar with the questions that you even need to ask. Air compressors are used in a wide range of applications, and power a wide range of tools and equipment. And the size and type of air compressor used will depend on the particular needs of the application, but the questions to ask to arrive at the right choice of air compressor are generally the same.

how-important-is-compressed-air-treatment

HOW IMPORTANT IS COMPRESSED AIR TREATMENT?

So, what is compressed air treatment? It is a group of compressed air system components, when used individually, or in various combinations, will clean and dry the compressed air to meet standards required for the application to which it being used. There are international standards for compressed air quality for certain applications, these are referred to as ISO 8573.1, and refer to the amount of dirt, moisture and oil that remains in compressed air after it has been treated. These components are identified as follows:

HOW TO SAVE MONEY BY INSTALLING FLOW METERS IN YOUR COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEM

Imagine driving your car to work on the highway, you look at your dashboard and none of your instruments are working – no speedometer, no gas gauge, no clock! We are so used to seeing these points of reference that we would find ourselves a little bit lost if they all of a sudden disappeared.

how-to-save-money-by-installing-larger-diameter-pipe-in-air-system

HOW TO SAVE MONEY BY INSTALLING LARGER DIAMETER PIPE IN YOUR AIR SYSTEM

Without a doubt, the most direct route to a more efficient compressed air system is to look beyond your air compressor, focus in on your air pipe distribution system, and assess whether it is designed appropriately for your application. The more efficient your compressed air pipe system design, the more efficient your compressed air system.

where-does-your-air-compressor-get-its-air

WHERE DOES YOUR AIR COMPRESSOR GET ITS AIR?

Where you install your air compressor has a direct impact on compressed air quality, your air compressor's operation, and consequently, your compressed air system's reliability.

Air compressors need air, primarily for the function of compressing it and sending it down pipes to perform work, and also as a critical cooling medium to keep air compressors running the way they should, consistently, reliably and efficiently.
