The Hidden Value of Compressed Air Heat Recovery

Social responsibility is forcing manufacturers to find new ways of reducing their carbon emissions and energy consumption. Obvious steps like the use of low-energy light bulbs and automated heating offer some immediate carbon savings. However, even once these steps are taken, there remains a pressure to reduce further. Aside from the negative impact of CO2 production on the environment, there […]

10 Ways to make a compressor installation energy efficient

Compressed air accounts for a significant part of total energy costs for industrial manufacturers – typically about 12% and may be as high as 40% in some facilities. This means that any compressed air energy savings that are achieved will have a big impact on a factory’s total energy consumption and CO2 emissions. These ten best practice tips will help […]
