New Whitepaper - reducing energy consumption from compressed air usage

05 March 2017

BCAS has produced a 16-page document entitled ‘Reducing Energy Consumption from Compressed Air Usage’ aimed at energy and plant managers responsible for the performance of a compressed air system.  

The whitepaper provides an overview of how to save energy in a typical system, highlighting areas where waste occurs, steps that can be taken to minimise waste and then where to go for further information.
Marion Beaver, technical officer at BCAS, said: “Both energy and plant managers are busy people dealing with a wide range of different building services and processes.  It is unlikely that many will be experts in managing compressed air systems. This whitepaper provides a starting point, offering an informative overview, rather than a detailed guide.”
The white paper points out that compressed air typically accounts for 10% of an industrial company’s electricity bill - in some sectors it is far more.  It also urges end users to consider the whole system and points out that every element impacts upon its energy consumption.
