Enhance Compressed Air Reliability Using A Total System Approach by


Compressed air is used in various production processes of virtually almost all modern manufacturing facilities. Because it is clean and easy to store, compressed air can be used for multiple applications including operating power tools, conveying, lifting materials, and controlling robotics. Significant energy savings can be achieved with full understanding of how an air compressed system works.

A total systems approach makes way for increased plant operation performance and reduced system inefficiency. Having sufficient knowledge in the overall impact of running a compressed air system and determining the required actions based on specific compressed air needs can minimize energy costs by around 20%.

Multiple companies only have a partial view of compressed air system performance as focus is often placed on routine compressor maintenance as well as power consumption. Concentrating on the supply-side components alone does not necessarily mean cost-savings or operation improvements. Potential savings as well as performance can be affected by factors including usage of an undersized equipment, wasted air, and air leaks.

Maintaining reliable compressed air, sustaining process requirements and keeping costs in check are responsibilities of plant managers. Learning how to manage a compressor room is important as it helps in providing quick solutions to issues encountered in the working environment. Plant managers must also be familiar on the effects of air pressure and flow, heat recovery, air quality at point-of-use, and wasted air for efficient evaluation of system performance, energy use, and cost savings. With a total systems approach that completely analyzes a system’s supply and demand sides, constant and steady system pressure, uninterrupted workflow, and minimal downtime can be secured.

As an important investment for any plant facility, a compressed air system must be well-maintained to ensure optimal performance, payback and equipment longevity. Determining savings can be done by looking at the entire system, specifically on how each element works together. This involves checking supply-side components including compressor controls, air treatment equipment, dryers, and filters. It also includes looking at demand-side equipment such as heat-recovery and point-of-use systems. A total systems approach checks on how air-system components work side by side to generate air, configure, calibrate, and maintain maximum performance.
