Whether or not the air is clean or laden with dust, all air has mass. This means that as it moves, frictional forces slow it down. Making matters worse, friction increases as the air’s mass and speed increase. Friction is created by the air interacting with other materials, including the dust within it, the components it moves through (for example the hose, ductwork, along with other items), and the air itself.

5-steps to a comprehensive compressed air assessment

The U.S. Energy Department estimates that air compressors use as much as 10% of all electricity generated in the U.S., and as much as 50% of this energy is wasted. Compressed air leaks alone account for 25-30% of compressed air use. Consequently, many industrial companies are identifying ways to lower their compressed air system energy consumption. One of the most popular methods to do so is a comprehensive compressed air assessment, or “air demand analysis.” The objective of this paper is to define the five steps required in a compressed air assessment.
