CAPS Australia compressed air audits

Energy Efficiency Services, a newly formed division of CAPS Australia, claims that compressed air audits enable companies to get the most out of their technology and reduce energy consumption and costs.

Compressed air is an important and major part of most manufacturing and industrial processes and it is estimated that air compressors consume 10-15% of all electricity used by industry in Australia. Many systems are operating with old technology or ineffective controls, wasting large volumes of air through leaks, inappropriate usage and other artificial demands. By embracing the benefits of the latest energy-efficient technologies, many opportunities are available for compressed-air users to improve both their bottom line and the environment. Investing wisely in new equipment and leveraging existing systems, will allow companies to begin saving energy more effectively. New control technologies allow compressors to more accurately match demand to significantly reduce energy consumption and improve payback periods.

Simply matching the compressor to the application can realise huge savings.

Air audits offer a detailed breakdown of compressed air demands for different processes in a facility over a period of time and quantify variations in demand and peak air requirements for a system. The collected data, once analysed, gives companies an overview of energy and life-cycle costs allowing for an analysis that can be used to determine energy savings available from more energy-efficient alternative compressed air solutions.
