Introduction to Energy Saving in Compressed Air Systems

This module is designed to assist those who work with compressed air systems to fully understand the costs, and potential waste of energy, associated with compressed air use. Methods and practices to reduce leaks and inappropriate use of compressed air are discussed, as well as the need to set and maintain optimum settings.
Correct sizing of components in relation to load, speed and pressure is covered with the use of Festo ProPneu software.
