Energy Audit

Compressed air systems don’t always run to their best potential with the following all affecting energy efficiency:

  • Incorrectly specified equipment
  • Leaks
  • Poorly sized & designed pipework
  • Long distances
  • Excessive bends and fittings

We offer compressed air usage audits in accordance with ISO 11011, using independent data loggers meaning our results are not manufacturer driven.

The data logging equipment allows us to compile a detailed survey of your compressed air systems condition with particular reference to energy and the operating efficiency of the system. We can monitor pressure, flow, energy, operating temperature and dew point, as well as carbon reduction.

How do we assess an audit?

  • Compressor kW sizes
  • How many loggers needed?
  • Is flow, dew point, pressure, temperature required?
  • How many days to carry out leak survey?
  • Shift patterns
  • Cost of electricity on site
  • Observe process within factory
  • Look for obvious leak issues
  • Process leaks
  • Misuse of compressed air

The energy audit

A standard audit would consist of installing data loggers for a minimum of 1 week, including weekends, to capture a variety of different production demands before presenting a ROI evaluation.

Energy loggers are fitted to all compressors, as well as a pressure transducer.

The data loggers collect and store information relating to a compressed air system’s:

  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Moisture dew point
  • Flow rate

In addition, current and voltage loggers enable current, volts, power factor and the true power of each air compressor to be accurately logged.

All data following the time period is downloaded for analysis and is presented in a detailed report outlining opportunities for energy savings.

Not only can this deliver energy savings and reduce your carbon emissions, it also demonstrates your environmental responsibility.

5 reasons to data log your compressed air system

To get the most out of your compressed air system, data needs to be collected. This identifies inefficiencies and highlights adjustments to save money in the long run.

While air compressors are rated by manufactures, it’s useful to know how this reflects on your complete functioning system.

The data recorded gets analysed to show whether any cost savings can be achieved. But how else can you use data loggers?
