Engineers wishing to extend their understanding of how to operate an energy efficient compressed air system are invited to join Kaeser Compressors for the Compressed Air Seminar at the NMEC Training Village on 8th Nov.
From the fundamental principles of compressed air to the operation and maintenance of air compressors, control systems and air treatment, this Compressed Air Seminar will provide participants with the knowledge that can ultimately assist them in optimising the energy efficiency of a compressed air system, promises the company.
Often considered the fourth utility, compressed air is commonly one of the largest single energy consumers within a manufacturing facility and, depending on utilisation, electrical power can account for up to 90 percent of the total costs of compressed air production. In addition, the energy costs of a typical compressed air system can account for almost three quarters of its lifetime costs. It therefore makes sense to keep the power consumption of a compressed air system to a minimum.
Fortunately, compressed air is one source of energy where significant and sustainable energy savings can be found and many existing compressed air users could be hiding an energy savings potential of 30% or more!
Anyone wanting to use compressed air energy efficiently must consider the compressed air system as a whole and understand the numerous correlations and interactions within the system and its integration into the operational environment, advises Kaeser. The first step in realising such energy savings potential is therefore knowledge, and for many, compressed air training and education will be the key to unlocking this potential.
Committed to supporting the compressed air industry with training and education, this Compressed Air Seminar is designed to equip compressed air, end users, operators, supervisors and consultants, with the knowledge to assist them in optimising the productivity and energy efficiency of a compressed air system as well as controlling associated operating costs.
