Facts about energy saving of compressed air system



"We are quick to identify energy losses from hot surfaces and to insulate those surfaces. But we are not so sensitive when it comes to saving compressed air, fixing air leask for instance, because most of the people think that the air is free-of-charge, but they don't reallize that to get the air at higher pressure than the atmospheric pressure requires considerable amount of work (energy)"

"The cost of electricity to operates the air compressor for one year can exceed the purchase price of the compressor"

In the next section we will see the cost of compressed air as well as the amount of energy wasted through the air leaks and so on.
