The real estate mantra, “location, location, location,” rings true for getting the energy savings and reliability you’re expecting from your compressed air system. To obtain the envy of all your friends and neighbors, there are a couple of key design considerations that greatly affect your compressors’ performance and therefore your system’s performance.

Join compressed air experts Neil Mehltretter and Wayne Perry as they examine key design criteria when planning your compressed air system, including ventilation, equipment clearance, compressed air storage and piping, and the overall compressor room environment.

This webinar reviews the key design considerations that contribute to an energy-efficient, reliable, scalable compressed air system.

Webinar attendees will be able to answer:

  • How does ventilation impact compressor performance?
  • Why is my compressed air system constantly shutting down?
  • Are my compressed air storage tanks sized correctly?
  • Is my piping designed to deliver air with maximum efficiency?
  • How can I tell if my station is efficient?
  • Can system design affect compressor reliability?
