Optimization is the Way Forward

Standardization lowers the barrier to getting started with the optimization of compressed air systems. At Enersize we recommend that you begin with an Xray of your system to get instant insights into the savings potential and a detailed action plan. Once you see how much you can save we’re certain you’ll be motivated to continue.

Here in Sweden, nature is in full bloom. In our garden, we are trying to protect the plants from being destroyed by some very stubborn birds. We installed a birdbath but this distraction was not enough to prevent some birds from trying to bathe amongst the plants and damaging them in the process. We can’t avoid the situation and we are still learning how to balance our relationship with those birds.

As strange as it might sound, there is an analogy between our relationship to those birds and the optimization of compressed air systems:

• Everybody uses compressed air in the industry.
• It takes time and know-how to optimize.

Optimization of a compressed air system has a very short payback time; it increases asset uptime and lowers your energy consumption and indirect CO2 emissions. Everybody agrees it is a good idea to do something about it: the question is how?

So what do you do if time and money are both limited?

A standardized, fail-safe method of approaching optimization is the best way forward.

Standardization lowers the barrier to getting started. At Enersize we recommend that you begin with an Xray of your compressed air system. In a matter of weeks, you‘ll have instant insights into the savings potential and a detailed action plan. For instance, you will learn about:
• Air waste, leakages, inappropriate use, and artificial demand
• Compressed air generation efficiency

Powered with the action plan from the Xray, you can continue to the next step – Xecute – and detect and address leakages. With a second Xray, you learn exactly how much you have saved and this usually provides ample motivation to continue optimization.

I can’t help thinking I am missing a way to measure the behavior of the birds in our garden. If I could, I would learn how to improve the situation. Similarly, continuous measurement of the compressed air system behavior is needed to understand what is normal and what is not, and then take control.

Your compressed air system puts a considerable footprint on our environment and this is why you need a clear strategy for energy optimization. The motivations are many:
• Lower risk of unplanned production stops
• Lower energy costs
• Lower indirect CO2 emissions
• Improve your facility

Practical tips for keeping your compressed air in shape

The fact that compressed air driven tools and machines are cost-effective and easy to maintain might also be the underlying reason why the whole compressed air system can be so neglected.

Electricians are experts on electricity. They know which cables to use in different environments. They also have to understand the dimensions of the cables to be used and which regulations to follow during an installation, related to cable channels, pipes, ducts and connectors.

Control Gap: When air compressors fight

This article discusses some unexpected discoveries that came about then compressed air system monitoring equipment was installed on some example systems.
The maintenance foreman of a local paint manufacturer had a morning ritual where he turned on his three compressors one-by-one at 6 am every morning like clockwork. He did so for as long as he could remember, since he started some 25 years ago.
