Compressed air efficiency opportunities

It’s not too good to be true. Improved compressed air system efficiency leads to improved reliability, product quality and overall productivity. How do you identify opportunities for improvements? Join us to find out. We’ll discuss the associated cost of operating a compressed air system, identify best practices and share proven energy reduction opportunities; as well as the latest compressed air system trends and technologies.

As a result of this training, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the associated cost of operating a compressed air system.
  • List key performance indicators used to validate system performance.
  • Describe compressed air system operations best practices.
  • Identify energy reduction opportunities.
