CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Going “green” and saving energy are two separate ideals that merge by circumstance, and focus on a campaign with huge potential wins. This battle starts in the air compressor room (supply side) and branches throughout the facility (distribution) to wherever air is needed (demand side). Along the way there are leaks, wasted dollars spent and energy consumed, all the while enlarging your carbon footprint. Take a look at these compelling reasons to tighten your compressed air system:

  1. Compressed air production is the 2nd or 3rd highest source of energy consumption in most companies.
  2. On average, air compressors account for 18% of all industrial electrical consumption in European manufacturing plants. Some suggest that compressed air costs account for as much as 30% of a manufacturing plant’s electricity bill.
  3. For every kWh spent on compressed air, an additional 0.8 kg of CO2 per month is spewed into our atmosphere.
  4. 75% of the total cost of your compressed air system goes to your electricity provider. The other 25% is accounted for by capital costs and ongoing maintenance.
  5. On average, only 43% of compressed air produced gets used to satisfy real demand.
  6. On average, 34% of compressed air produced is wasted to leaks.
  7. The remainder is consumed by wasteful applications and artificial demand.
