When it comes to replacing your air compressor, there are two main rotary compressor options available: vane and screw. Both produce the same end result but how do the two compare in terms of energy efficiency? Andy Jones, general manager at Mattei, weighs the technologies up.
The installation of Flow Meters in large facilities with multiple air compressors allows the operators to compare compressor usage and adjust them for optimum efficiencies.
When buying a new compressor, it is important to select the right model for the application.
Cooking up Savings for Major Bakery May 2, 2014 The solution was designed to improve the performance of an existing compressor, and to incorporate a new compressor which will recover up to 50kW of heat energy, utilizing the reclaimed heat for process heat, thus providing energy efficiency and lower running costs.

A recent total cost comparison demonstrates that electric linear drives, at current prices for components and electricity, pay for themselves within a few months even for simple point-to-point motions with two end positions.
By measuring their system and learning how it was operating, some easy-to-implement energy efficiency measures could be identified.
With electricity costs at an all time high, there are a number of areas manufacturers can focus on to reduce their spiraling compressed air generating costs.
Maintaining the efficiency of a compressed air system is a constant battle, with leaks being a considerable source of the problem.
