Air Compressor Energy-Saving Tips

Air Compressor Energy-Saving Tips –

Roughly 75% of all makers have a compressed air system. These system control an assortment of equipment, including machine apparatuses, material handling, and spray painting hardware. Most of energy audits conducted in India recommends that small and medium size industries can save more in this type of saving.

On an average our Indian Industries uses 48% energy of total power generated. By reducing the air compressure wasted energy we can save and improve energy efficiency.

Cost of Compressed Air in Industries – Compressed air is one major costly thing which uses in manufacturing plant.

As roughly calculation we can say that if we use 8 kW power to generate the compressed air than generated air equivalent kW will be 1 kW only.

Before implementing energy reduction strategies, be familiar with all aspects of your compressed air system.

System supply –

Examine the supply side of your compressed air system for the sorts of compressors utilized and the type, reasonableness and settings of limit controls and other working conditions. Understand the fundamental abilities of the system and its different methods of operation. Confirm that air compressors are not very big for end employments.

System demand –

Recognize every possible use of compressed air in the plant. Measure the volume of air utilized as a part of every application and create a demand profile, amount of air utilized as a component of time, for the compressor. A general evaluation of compressed air utilize will help distinguish wrong employments of air.

System graph – 

Build up an outline of your compressed air system—including compressors, air supply lines with measurements, and compressed air end uses—to give a general perspective of the whole compressed air handle.


Leaks – 

Routinely check your system for holes. Compressed air leaks can be a major source of wasted energy in industrial facilities. Leaks can result in wasting 20% to 30%.In some cases, even up to 50% of an air compressor system’s output is wasted.

Assuming leakage of 30% of compressed air, a system with 150 kW of compressor power is wasting 45 kW due to leaks. This costs over Rs 27,50,000 in wasted electrical energy annually.


Wrong use of compressed air – 

Search for wrong employments of compressed air at your office. Rather than utilizing compressed air, utilize air molding or fans to cool electrical cupboards; utilize blowers to upset, suction, cool, blend, and expand bundling; and utilize low-weight air for blow weapons and air spears. Separate the compressed air source from unused gear.


Compressor size –

In the event that your compressor is larger than average include a littler compressor and grouping controls to make its operation more productive when somewhat stacked. Succession controls can manage various compressors to coordinate compressed air needs, as they fluctuate for the duration of the day.

Air receiver/surge tank –

In the event that your compressed air system does not have an air receiver tank, add one and reduce on/off cycling of the compressor. The tank is measured to the force of the compressor. For instance, a 30 kW air compressor needs roughly a 3 liter air receiver tank.

Cooler intake air – 

While admitting cooler air, which is more dense, compressors utilize less vitality to deliver the required weight. Cool air increases the performance of compressor.

V-belts – 

Routinely check the compressor’s v-belts for proper tightness. Free belts slip all the more every now and again which lessens compressor productivity.
