How Can I Make My Compressor System More Energy Efficient and Save Costs?

Our passion for energy efficiency and cost saving derives from the concern for our children’s future. Analysing the efficiency of your system is a brilliant way to start saving.

Compressed air leaks can commonly account for 20-50% of a plant’s total compressed air consumption. Frequently, fixing leaks is as simple as tightening a loose connector and as such can provide an extremely attractive payback period. Ash Air have qualified technicians for ultrasonic air leak detection, who can not only detect the leaks but can provide on the spot repairs. Most leak detetion programs that are carried out do not offer this service as standard but at Ash Air we can save you money from the minute we start on your site.

We recommend:

1) Leak Detection

Compressed air leaks can commonly account for 20-50% of a plant’s total compressed air consumption. Frequently, fixing leaks is as simple as tightening a loose connector and as such can provide an extremely attractive payback period. Ash Air have qualified technicians for ultrasonic air leak detection, who can not only detect the leaks but can provide on the spot repairs. Most leak detetion programs that are carried out do not offer this service as standard but at Ash Air we can save you money from the minute we start on your site. Our certified engineers can analyse your system with leak detection equipment and data loggers and suggest the best solution for you.

2) Energy Audits

The benefits of a Compressed Air Audit, are the potential reductions in the operating costs for the end user; this in turn will improve the productivity of the manufacturing process. Ash Air can tailor a compressed air audit to suit your needs. If a walk through audit is sufficient one of our team of trained staff can carry this out, and feed this information back to you in a professional report with actions and recommendations.

We can also offer full in depth audits; with a comprehensive data logging of your compressed air equipment on site. As a result of this, we can propose recommendations to enhance the operation of your equipment on site. Energy represents the largest cost associated with operating an industrial compressor and therefore represents the largest opportunity for savings. One way Ash Air can help to calculate your energy consumption is through the use of a data loggers. During off load running, fixed speed compressors deliver no air but can still consume between 20-40% of full load power.

At Ash Air we know it's important to understand a users air demand so that the best solution can be identified in order to save energy losses. Data Loggers can be connected to the incoming electricity supply which records a reading of the incoming Amps every 90 seconds over a seven day period. This data is then downloaded from the data logger into a software package. Graphs and reports can be produced to simulate and calculate energy consumption. This data can then be analysed to produce a demand profile for the compressor system and subsequently an accurate compressor profile can be recommended. Installing the correct compressor for your system requirements is the first step in saving energy and reducing your energy costs.

Energy Efficiency

Variable Speed Drive (VSD) compressors can save up to 30% of system energy costs. We have various VSD models to suit your air requirements and working conditions        

Energy Recovery

The energy recovery option can capture heat and recover up to 75% of energy loss.
