Air Technologies® helped a musculoskeletal manufacturer improve the efficiency of its compressed air system and save an annual $157,327 in energy costs.

Problematic Compressor

The Air Technologies® customer was operating four oil-free air compressors and one oil-flooded compressor with an efficiency of 4.2 kilowatt-hour/thousand cubic feet, using a standard compressor sequencer control to meet its plant’s demand. The company recently consolidated two air compressor rooms and was looking for a new controls system to improve efficiency under variable demands and conditions.

Expert Help from Air Technologies®

A team from Air Technologies® conducted an audit, identified and repaired system leaks and provided additional energy-saving solutions. Air Technologies® experts helped centralize the compressor room and replaced the oil-flooded compressor with a new Atlas Copco oil-free air compressor. They also installed a ManagAIR® control system to maximize the efficiency of the overall system—under all load conditions—and automatically adjust to pressure demands.

With the new solutions now in place, the manufacturer is saving $157,327 in energy costs each year. Plus, it received an additional $157,327 utility rebate for the project.
