Title: Compressed Air System Optimization
Author: Aegerter, R.
Abstract: Several years ago I went to a gas station and noticed that my car's tires were low on air. I saw the gas station had an air compressor, but it cost a quarter to use the compressor. I paid my quarter and used the compressor. I realized then that compressed air wasn't free. Compressed air wasn't free at the gas station and it isn't free in your plant. Most people in industry believe compressed air is free. Air leaks go on for years. When an expansion is planned and the plant is tight on compressed air, the project's budget includes an air compressor that is amply sized. If this sounds like your plant or if your plant is having problems with sufficient compressed air capacity, then it may be time to optimize your compressed air system.
