Control operating costs related to compressed air systems in the company
Compressed air is an energy carrier that is frequently used in many sectors, particularly when operating production machines and specific pneumatic tools. Despite its abundant use, it is a difficult vector to control, with high operating costs. In an unmonitored installation, production (heat) and distribution (leakage) losses can be as high as 90%. The aim of this measurement is to demonstrate the various levers for optimising a compressed air system.

Compressed air: an energy carrier that needs optimising in numerous sectors
Compressed air is an energy carrier that is frequently used in many sectors, particularly in the use of production machinery and specific pneumatic tools. Despite its abundant use, it is a complex medium to control, resulting in high operating costs. In an unmonitored installation, up to 90% can be lost in production (heat) and distribution (leaks). Compressed air costs can be contained by regularly analysing energy requirements and through technological monitoring. This measure should be applied when the analysis requires a new compressed air installation.
