The capital cost of buying a compressor is actually only a small part of the overall equation, and we want to ensure our customers obtain the lowest possible cost of ownership.
A system design specific for your requirements is key to reducing costs, managing your system’s energy efficiency for ISO 50001 and ensuring environmental responsibility for ISO 14001.
‘If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it’
Undergoing an energy audit is often the first step to improving the energy efficiency of your compressed air system. We survey all areas of the system in order to minimise energy consumption throughout, including generation, treatment, distribution and process usage.
Direct Air promise to guarantee projected savings from any survey conducted so you can restore control of your energy management and reduce your businesses carbon footprint.
We offer compressed air usage audits in accordance with ISO 11011. Using data logging equipment, we compile a detailed survey of your compressed air systems with particular reference to energy and the operating efficiency. We can monitor pressure, flow, energy, operating temperature and dew point, as well as carbon reduction.
Did you know up to 40% of your generated compressed air is being lost due to leaks? Air leakage is the single largest waste of compressed air. Direct Air offer a compressed air leak detection service to locate leaks, estimate leakage costs, calculate repair costs and provide a detailed report for corrective actions.
Approximately 10% of all electricity used in industry is accounted for by compressed air systems. Did you know over 90% of the electrical input to a compressor is lost as heat? Installing a heat recovery system is simple to do. It works on any make of compressor and can be achieved at initial installation or as a retrofit.
Variable Speed Air Compressors
Variable speed compressors are designed to save energy. The technology enables the compressor to automatically adjust its motor speed to match the air demand.
Direct Air offer compressed air flow meters to help identify potential savings, overloads and weak points in your system to improve its efficiency. By measuring the actual flow to the various production units, you are in a position to make decisions based on facts.
At Direct Air, we provide a guaranteed ROI that predicted savings from a compressed air installation will be met following the implementation of the system.
