For decades, compressor manufacturers found creative ways to present their energy consumption in the most favorable light when up against competitors. Some were more scrupulous than others, but often the customer did not get the best value possible.
With over ten thousand air system audits under our belt, we've seen it all and learned a few things. One of the most common problems we see is that most systems have far more capacity than needed. On average, users operate at 44% of peak capacity. It's so common, we'd say it is an epidemic, and even our own customers are not immune despite our efforts to inoculate with education.
In an effort to help educate and hopefully ease some fears, Kaeser has written a white paper to provide some basic facts and information on Tier 4 final engines. Check out the new blog post about the white paper.
According to the Farmers' Almanac, the 2019-2020 winter season could be colder and snowier winter than usual for much of the United States. Is your compressed air system ready for the colder temperatures?
A reliable supply of clean, dry compressed air is vital for body shops. Taking the time to understand air quantity and quality requirements can keep energy costs in line and prevent the costly re-work caused by contaminants in the compressed air supply.
Check out a new infographic with some tips for receiving commercial shipments, whether from Kaeser or any other supplier.
In hazardous areas the presence of flammable gases or liquids, combustible dusts or easily ignited fibers can exist in sufficient concentrations to cause a fire or explosion, given a source of ignition (such as electricity running through a compressor). Moving the compressed air system away from these areas is often a cost-saving alternative to explosion-proof systems.
During the purchasing decision process, it is common for prospects to compare compressors with some sort of utility criteria. In other words, how much air will they get for their money.
Kaeser and most other compressor makers are now equipping their machines with Ethernet and other communications ports to facilitate tying in to plant monitoring and control schemes with the Internet of Things. What's been your experience?
There are many cases where a reciprocating compressor is a very good, economical fit for a shop, but service issues may lead owners to think they need a different solution. Here are some tips to avoid some common issues as well as some maintenance tips to keep your recip unit going.
A mistake by a field technician ends up saving a plant 13% in power reduction plus another 10% power benefit by running at lower pressure.
A small town faces the common dilemma of “repair or replace?” and achieves notable operational and energy efficiency gains
“New year – new me” Does that sound familiar? At the start of the new year, many of us are turning our attention from the accomplishments of the past year to new goals and resolutions for the year ahead.
One of our media partners recently quizzed their subscribers to assess users’ knowledge about compressed air systems. The respondents were in the automotive service industry, but the questions were not industry or application specific and the answers are a fair reflection of compressed air knowledge of most businesses with compressors 25 hp and below. We thought it would be useful to present the results and discuss areas where understanding of compressed air systems needs a boost.
The point least understood among the surveyed compressor users is how to size a system for the shop. We presented a scenario with five techs, each using 15 cfm tools, and gave five different compressor size (hp) options. Less than 40% picked the most appropriate option, and most incorrect answers were heavily over-sized. We see this in the field all the time. Operators routinely overestimate the size of compressor needed.
Knowing that your compressed air system is not only critical to your production but also affects the quality of your products, would you invest to avoid downtime from your compressed air system?
Compressed air is just as vital in the foundry and metal casting industry as it is to most other manufacturers. Unfortunately, why they rely on compressed air, the foundry environment is often horrible for air compressors and dryers.
Regardless of pipe material, a key point to understand is the relationship of pipe diameter to how much flow it can handle.
You've expanded your system and need more air, or maybe it seems like your compressor is just not making any air. Before you invest in new equipment or start worrying about repair costs, have you checked your filters?
The more you know about compressed air systems, the more you'll get out of them. Explore the various opportunities to learn more about compressed air systems via our current and archived webinars or sign up to attend a seminar in your area.
