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.
Air audits can be as simple or as comprehensive as you require. 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 analyse, for example, your air pressure requirements, power consumption and flow rate.
Our engineers can then provide recommendations that will help you to select the right size and mix of fixed and regulated-speed compressors. The compressed air audit may also identify if 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 then advise on any improvements that you can make to your network to help reduce leaks and, save money.
It is also worth knowing that a pipework system that is poorly sized, that has too many bends or fittings or which transports the air over long distances can reduce air pressure too. So at CompAir, we can also advise you on the best course of action to ensure your network is running at peak performance
