Air Compressor Audits
Challenge: Conducting proper air compressor audits in your plant identifies opportunities for improvement and cost-savings in system design and operating procedure.
Myth: A trained observer can make a quick “walk-through” and offer good advice.
How to conduct an audit of your system
To conduct a useful air audit in your plant will require the skills of a trained technician and the use of proper measuring equipment. There are many benefits to a proper air audit:
- increased productivity
- reduced capital costs
- reduced operating costs
- peace of mind
What are we really trying to determine? The answer is: How much air do you really need? Unless you have the answer to that question, many of your decisions will be made based on inadequate or inaccurate assumptions. That could be costly.
