Compressed Air Energy Audits
Electricity is the most common energy source for industrial compressed air production and that energy cost can amount to over 70% of the total cost of ownership.
At ACL we find that in many cases, this cost can be substantially reduced through various methods including: energy recovery, pressure reduction, air leak reduction, as well as the optimisation of operations through the appropriate choice of compressor size plus system control and regulation.
YOUR FREE COMPRESSED AIR CHECK
Using our smart diagnostic tools we can quickly provide a comprehensive report on your systems status, offering advice on where you could save costs and increase efficiency and productivity.
NO OBLIGATION. NO COMMITMENT!
Our compressed air system audits are fast and efficient, so won’t interrupt your working day.
Air compressors typically consume from 10-12% of a factory’s electricity, sometimes up to 30%.
Making even small changes as a result of ACL Engineering’s Free #airCHECK assessment can be enough to offer long-term financial savings and decrease your production costs.
HOW WE CAN SAVE YOU MONEY!
THE ACL AUDIT PROCESS
- Detection of air leaks
- Reduction in working pressure
- Wasted “Off” Load Energy
- No Loss autodrains
- Receiver and pipework sizing
- Multiple compressor control
The correct sizing for a totally new installation of compressed air equipment is dependent on the correct information. If there are existing compressors, then installing our Atlas Copco data loggers will assist with extreme accuracy for a compressed air audit.
If we are measuring a typical week or weeks, the report will confirm the exact usage for every minute of the day showing high to low production patterns. If measuring more than one compressor we can see the other machines assisting the compressed air usage throughout the survey, and as a bonus, we can identify the number of air leaks at times when the factory is not producing.
Furthermore, we can simulate the renowned Atlas Copco GA VSD+ or GA VSDs into the programme software to show energy savings on wasted kW. This can be as a standalone machine or a machine to support multiple compressors to remove the off-load wastage.
