Compressed air systems hold the key to greater productivity, efficiency and profitability in your facility. You just have to understand where to look and what to do. There is an increasing awareness that the systems approach to design and operation of industrial compressed air systems improves performance and productivity. A properly designed and functioning compressed air system reduces energy consumption and cost.
To optimise overall compressed air system efficiency, it is necessary to evaluate the whole system. Attempting to address individual parts of the system such as compressor control without evaluating issues of air storage, distribution and point of use can lead to incomplete analysis. Poor definition of system issues often results in treatment of symptoms. Failure to deal with the root cause of performance issues inevitably leaves the overall system with poor and inefficient operation.
In this workshop, you will learn the essentials of the systems approach, including compressed air system design from compressor to end use, piping and fittings, materials, codes and standards. Learn how to optimize the system for performance, to create and maintain balance between system supply and end user demand. An learn to eliminate waste lost due to leakage and inappropriate use of compressed air. You will also gain an understanding of the maintenance issues that apply; the cost of air leakage, the methods of detecting and correcting system faults to ensure smooth operation.
