Compressed Air Audits


How much thought do you give to the compressed air that passes through your industrial machinery on a daily basis? Ask yourself these questions and consider how the answers might impact on your business.

  • Do you know how your system is working?
  • How much does your compressed air really cost you?
  • What is the quality of your air?

If you are interested in how to use compressed air more effectively, consider getting a compressed air audit from Air Energy. Reliable test data is the basis for informed decisions, and an audit is the most comprehensive way of obtaining accurate, reliable information.

Analysis of Power consumption can provide intelligent selection of the best size and type of Air Compressor. The savings on energy consumption can give a payback on equipment in as little as 12 – 24 months depending on the application.

Different compressed air auditing methods

There are three major compressed air audit methods. They are:

  1. Walk the Line – a simple visual check that requires no hardware, the procedure involves looking over some major points both inside and outside the compressor room. These points include filters, pipework and the condensation drain.
  2. Data logging – the method used by Air Energy, this involves recording the data of the current (amps) and using a standard formula that helps to calculate the kW usage to a fairly accurate point. The data logging method should always last a minimum of 7 days.
  3. Air Scan – This procedure can range from a full audit through to an evaluation of just select facets. These areas can include air measurement, air leak detection and control, air quality audit, maintenance review and monitoring and control program.
