Air Efficiency Audits
Whether you are looking to replace or upgrade your compressors, improve the energy efficiency of your existing installation or stop wasting money through air leaks, an Air Efficiency Audit is a great place to start!
Compressed air audits are an effective way to identify your current energy use and to assess your compressed air needs.
As well as carrying out an audit of your compressed air system, you should also include regular checks for air leaks in your maintenance routines too.
A simple leak detection survey can identify any problems quickly and, any remedial action you take can have an immediate, positive effect with fast payback periods.
How do I audit my compressed air?
A data-logging unit is attached to each compressor in your network for a fixed period of time. The results from the audit can then be used to determine your current air pressure requirements, power consumption and flow rate.
We can then assess whether your current compressed air system is suitable for your current application. The compressed air audit may identify that you need to switch to a new, more efficient machine, carry out further network improvements or pipework upgrades or if your compressor requires better control. We can advise on any improvements that you can make to your system to help reduce leaks and, save money.
The top 5 targets of a compressed air efficiency audit
- Air demand and supply - Make sure you have the right compressors to meet your demand efficiently
- Fix air leaks - Air leaks are a costly waste of energy and money
- Avoid over pressurisation - More pressure means more energy and increased risk of leaks, consider your requirements. Lowering system pressure may solve a lot of problems
- Bad Piping - Old piping, incorrect sizing, too many bends and tees reduces the efficiency of your compressed air system
- Maintain your Compressor System - Change Air/oil filters, separators and lubricants at the optimum time, not when they clog up and cause a pressure loss or damage to your compressor system
