How acting on the compressed air can improve your electrical energy efficiency
Energy efficiency potentials can be found in many areas. In general, every energy consumer operates with an efficiency that possibly may be improved. The two main questions are therefore:
How big is the share of this energy consumer on total energy consumption?
How big is the grade by which the energy efficiency (EE) of the consumer can be improved?
In industrial companies, compressed air are often significant energy uses (SEU). It is therefore meaningful to take a closer look at these systems. Compressed air is the most expensive type of energy. This is since by generating compressed air, 90% - 95% of the energy consumed (depending on the efficiency of the system) is converted into heat and 5% - 10% into usable compressed air.
Several measures can improve the EE of a compressed air system.
