Air compressor guide

Dec. 1, 1997
A guide to understanding and measuring the complete cost of generating compressed air is available from Kaeser Compressors, Inc. The guide demonstrates that in 125 hp applications, the annual cost of electrical power to drive compressors can be twice the cost of the compressor unit. Over a typical 10-year period, a compressor that costs $40,000 can accumulate up to $800,000 in electrical power costs.

The guide explains the various factors that affect efficiency in the compressed air system, and outlines easy steps to dramatically increase the efficiency of existing systems.
