Compressed air is an expensive utility and may be one of your largest energy consumers in your plant. In an effort to reduce operating expenses, most companies fail to exploit the potential savings associated with managing their compressed air systems. Experience tells us that you could reduce your costs by 25 – 50%.
A plant that implements a Compressed Air Assessment today will not only help save the environment, it will gradually reduce operating costs while improving system performance.
Deliverables of Air
- Demand Side
- Supply Side
- Due Point Analysis
- Point of Use
On average, a professionally diagnosed and executed Compressed Air Assessment saves a minimum of 25% in operating costs per year.
Benefits of a Compressed Air Assessment:
- Eliminate premature equipment failure
- Substantially reduce energy costs.
- Stabilize production and product quality.
We will focus on shutting off as much air compressor horsepower as possible, while still providing for redundancy and plant back up. Most plants operate 50% more air compressor horsepower than they require to manufacture their products. This is a fact gathered from over 200 system assessments since 1996, and it matters little as to what product is being manufactured. Our goal is to identify all sources of wasted horsepower and provide customized solutions to make sure your plant is running efficiently. If your plant is operating any rental air compressors, it may be a sign of a compressed air system that is out of control. Let us show you how to return these excessively expensive rental machines back to their owners.
Petro Chemical Energy is a completely independent energy engineering company. We focus on commonly occurring issues within compressed gas systems such as:
- Excessive water in plant air lines
- Low pressure in compressed air lines
- Air compressor controls
- Inadequate piping
- Inappropriate equipment
- Artificial demand (use of excessive air compressor horsepower over and above the real plant requirements)
- Rental air compressor usage is another common sign of an inefficient compressed air system.
