On-Demand Webinar: Compressed Air
Advice from the Experts: Ways to Improve your Compressed Air System
This webcast begins with a presentation on principles of compressed air efficiency by Ron Marshall of Compressed Air Challenge. Ron discusses the effects of pressure on leaks, compressed air-powered equipment, and compressor power, as well as the importance of awareness training. This is followed by an analysis of the causes of high pressure such as piping loss, poor components with high differential, and higher than desired flows due to production and leaks, as well as options for remedying them.The webcast continues with a discussion on how to cut compressed air waste with leak detection, presented by Werner Rauer, Product Manager, Rotary Screw Compressors with Kaeser Compressors, Inc. Eliminating compressed air leaks can add 25-30% back into your compressed air supply yet many plants struggle with executing leak detection and repair programs. In his presentation Werner discusses how piping materials affect leaks, how to calculate the annual cost of a leak, methods of leak detection, and how to implement a leak repair strategy
