Managing Compressed Air Systems: Conversations for C-Executives

Compressed Air System GaugeThere have been significant trends in the compressed air and industrial pipework industry in which top executives are now engaging. Primary among these are conversations in the design of highly energy-efficient air compression networks that are also cost-effective. Now, more than before, these executives involve themselves even in understanding the operational processes of their production systems.

This has helped these company officials determine the right pumps, compressed air systems and industrial pipework. Also, consulting with compressed air system specialists has helped them optimise their return-on-investment.

It is, however, beyond discussing compressor functionalities.


Ideally, how well the air compression equipment and related parts function will depend on whether their design has optimised functionality for the particular process in which you will be using them. Since no single processing operation is the same in all companies, you will require engaging your compressed air equipment supplier in customising solutions that are unique to your business’ air compression needs. Typically, it will take plenty of time to monitor how the current system is functioning.

These changes would revolve around how best you can reduce your carbon footprint and monetise your carbon credits. The changes will also cover integrating technology for efficient tracking of energy consumption. Proper management and monitoring of air compression networks, too.

Managing & Monitoring

If your company has an expansive network of air compression units, it is advisable you separate it into sizeable zones. That will facilitate management and monitoring of individual equipment and processes. However, consult your supplier of compressed air solutions to recommend an application that will help you break up your compressed air networks and monitor these zones effectively.

Even with air compression units, you can realise a quantifiable payback on your energy initiatives. That will, however, require you to determine how best you can integrate the right technology to track the energy consumption of your compressed air equipment. You will also need to upgrade your network with highly efficient and cost-effective air compression.
