254 views

Published on

Tip summary
Take air compressor intake air from the coolest (but not air conditioned) location.
(Every 5 C reduction in intake air temperature would result in 1% reduction in compressor power consumption).
Proposed actions
o Review the intake location for your compressed air system.
o Plan to conduct the required changes to locate it to the suitable temperature possible to decrease the power consumption.
Economics
o Low cost opportunity with a high ROI.
Savings
o Estimated energy savings range: 3 % of the overall compressor energy use.
o Decrease equivalent amount of CO2 emissions accordingly to save the environment.
Conclusion
o Relocating the system intake point can save the compressed air system energy use by 3%.
o Please share this tip with others to share knowledge and increase energy efficiency awareness.
