As electricity bills continue to rise due to new government mandates, manufacturing plants and other industrial facilities are making reducing energy consumption a priority. No company can afford to waste money by using machines or processes that consume too much energy. Since pneumatic systems are ubiquitous throughout manufacturing and can consume a large share of a plant’s power costs, ensuring they consume only the air required is extremely important. AutomationDirect White Paper, “Improving Pneumatic Energy Efficiency” discusses certain tips and techniques that can reduce pneumatic system energy costs by as much as 35 percent.
There are many sources of inefficiencies in pneumatic systems, but proper steps taken during the design phase, and implementing certain tactics when making adjustments can significantly reduce energy consumption.
This White Paper explores specific areas of pneumatic systems which can often be overlooked and provides key information to help you get the most out of your pneumatic system without the cost of unnecessary energy consumption.
