10 Tips from the World's #1 Compressor Manufacturer Atlas Copco
Where to Start? Measure
You can’t build a cost saving strategy around unknowns, so begin by measuring your compressed air system’s energy consumption, flow rates and operating air pressure. This will provide baseline values, help to identify problem areas and compute actual cost savings from any improvements you make. A great way to analyze a compressed air system is to draw a pressure profile that shows the pressure drops through a system. These pressure measurements give feedback for control adjustments, determine pressure drops across components, and help to determine system operating pressures.
