Efficient use of compressed air is an area where many manufacturing operations can make considerable savings.
It doesn't have to be difficult, paying attention to a few simple guidelines in the design and maintenance of pneumatic air preparation systems can generate significant savings.
This guide book contains specific tips on how to reduce your use of compressed air and reduce your energy bill.
Consider reducing supply pressure to the whole machine or introduce pressure zones; each with their own regulator to minimise air consumption and energy usage. e.g. taking an air pressure setting from 6.5 bar to 4.5 bar reduces energy usage by 30%.
