To assure the efficiency and effectiveness of compressed air systems, the measurement of flow is crucial. Flow assessment determine the actual air demand and evaluate the appropriate size of compressor needed. Furthermore, it’s also help to identify the leak rate volume in compressed air system.
Our assessments can use thermal mass or pressure differential flow meter to track the output of the compressed air production system and match it up with the compressor status and system pressures. You will find out where compressed air is being used inappropriately and what opportunities for improvement are available. Using this information key energy performance indicators can be calculated to determine if your system is efficiently producing compressed air.
“Flow Assessment” is one of the most cost effective ways to do find, repair, keep measure and monitor the leakage. Once you able to manage those leakage in your plant, you are not only stop wasting money, you also improve your plant efficiency:
A typical example in the real world as above, the plant had leaks that made up approximately 36% of the average compressed air usage. With a local average industrial electricity rate of RM0.35/kW and base on 6000 hours operation a year, the leak cost was contributed to energy loss as much as RM117,000 per year.
