These systems consist of a supply side, which includes compressors and air treatment, and demand side, which includes distribution and storage systems and end use equipment.
A properly managed supply side will result in clean, dry, stable air being delivered at the appropriate pressure in a dependable cost effective manner. A properly managed demand side minimizes wasted air and uses compressed air for appropriate applications. Improving and maintaining peak compressed air system performance requires addressing both supply and demand sides of the system and how to interact.
Plant air compressor system can vary in size from 5 hp to 6000 hp. Improved systems can save energy from 20 to 50% and save lakhs of Rs. Per year. A properly managed compressor system can save energy, reduced maintenance, decrease downtime, increase production throughput, and improve product quality.
