Thought Leaders Series: The key to operating a cost effective industrial compressed air station

Start time: 1.00pm AEST. Join us as subject experts talk about the true cost of operating an industrial compressed air station and air leakage management.
Thought Leaders Series: The key to operating a cost effective industrial compressed air station

Compressed air specialists discuss the true costs of owning and operating a compressed air station, and the key cost factors that should be considered in designing and maintaining a system for optimum cost effectiveness. Includes an in depth look into compressed air leakage - one of the largest on-going costs of operating a compressed air system - with real case study examples demonstrating how long term reductions can be made.
Like gas, electricity and water - compressed air is an essential utility to many areas of industry. Compressed air is also one of the most expensive utilities to generate. Operating an energy efficient industrial compressed air station is therefore key to keeping these costs down. However, achieving this requires a number of factors to be considered that transcend beyond the obvious initial capital equipment purchase price.

In this webinar Jeff Coyle, National Design and Engineering Manager (KAESER Compressors Australia) will break down what the true costs of operating an industrial compressed air station are, and highlight the key factors that a compressed air user should take into consideration when it comes to designing and operating a compressed air station for optimum cost effectiveness.

Dr James Neale, Principal Engineer at Energy Systems Management Ltd, and Chair of the Maintenance Engineering Society of New Zealand (MESNZ) will also join this webinar to discuss compressed air leak management. Compressed air leak management represents the single biggest efficiency gain opportunity for most end users, with typical payback for this type of work typically measured in weeks or months rather than years! James will review the main leak management strategies that can be employed for a range of systems, from the small-scale workshop right through to large scale complex industrial sites. He will then review some specific case studies selected to highlight specific solutions that listeners will be able to adopt in their facilities that will deliver long term reductions in air leakage rates and repair costs.
