Compressed Air: Identifying, Analyzing, & Implementing Energy Reduction Opportunities

September 19, 2023 8:30 AM
3.5 hour Webinar

Course Description:

Do the employees on the shop floor still consider all air to be free, especially compressed air? How efficient is your compressed air system (cfm/kW)? What does it cost to run your entire compressed air system? What energy efficiency projects have you implemented over the last three years? If any of these questions peaks your curiosity then this course is for you!

This course will provide the students with the knowledge and tools to assess and reduce the overall cost to run their compressed air system. By understanding and utilizing basic thumb-rules, the student will be able to calculate the cost to run their compressed air system, the cost of inappropriate leaks, and the cost of compressed air leaks. Knowing these costs is key to help implement energy efficiency projects along with helping drive “no-cost” changes to their facilities operating procedures. In addition, understanding how to utilize the FOCUS ON ENERGY(R) Program to provide assistance in identifying opportunities, providing potential incentives and;

Learning Objectives:

As a result of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Estimate the associated cost of operating a compressed air systems and leaks.
  2. Develop Key Performance Indicators to validate system optimization projects and best practices.
  3. Recognize inappropriate uses of compressed air and associated cost.
  4. Identify, analyzes, and implement energy reduction opportunities
  5. Describe several best practices and new technologies for current and future expansion of compressed air systems
  6. Describe resources available through incentive programs such as Focus on Energy, Wisconsin's energy efficiency for potential incentives, financing, and assistance to implement Energy Efficiency projects.

The course provides the basic understanding of terms, definitions, formulas and thumb rules used to determine the operating costs associated with compressed air systems.

Intended Audience: Energy Managers & Director, Operation & Maintenance Personnel, Plant & Building Managers / Engineers, Consultants, Utility Representatives, anyone with interest in energy efficiency.
