Compressed air energy storage and pressure control

Solutions for Pressure Stability

Storage media and distribution and pressure maintenance systems are key components of any compressed air station. Efficient operation is assured only if network pressure is stable at all points and if the compressed air quality is high.

The Kaeser advantages:

  • Increase pressure stability and energy efficiency
  • Reduce compressor cycling
  • Increase effectiveness of dryers and filters


Compressed Air Best Practices

Calculating Storage for Demand Events

August 20, 2020 | 2:00 PM EDT

Join Keynote Speaker, Tom Taranto, Owner, Data Power Services, to discuss design calculations to engineer storage volume for specific applications, rather than using general rules of thumb to estimate the amount of storage volume. He will also review calculating storage volume for the unanticipated shutdown of a compressor and the need to accommodate the permissive start-up time of a stand-by compressor. He will also discuss calculating dedicated storage volume to improve performance of a high speed “flying cut-off cylinder.” 

Neil Mehltretter, Engineering Manager, Kaeser Compressors, Inc. is a guest speaker (approx. 10 minutes) and will be discussing How Controls and Piping Affect Large Air Demand Events. During Kaeser’s portion of the webinar, Neil Mehltretter will discuss how single compressor systems and multiple compressor systems operate during high demand events, whether additional measurement points can be helpful, and what impact piping can have on these events. 

This is an interactive webinar, with the opportunity to ask questions before and during the live event. Questions specified for Tom Taranto and Neil Mehltretter can be submitted to
