Automobile supplier cuts energy consumption in half

Automobile supplier cuts energy consumption in half 


Air Technologies® helped a Kentucky automobile supplier reduce its total energy consumption by over 50%, saving a projected $140,000 in annual energy costs.

The large, innovative automobile supplier was operating with four large air compressors that were over 20 years old—each running at over 900 HP. The compressors were causing major maintenance issues such as frequent breakdowns and poor air quality. The problems consistently interrupted production, which resulted in increased costs and missed deadlines. In need of a complete compressed air system overhaul, the company reached out to Air Technologies® for a solution.

Air Technologies® experts analyzed the customer’s compressed air system and determined that the company was an ideal DirectAIR® candidate. Air Technologies® installed DirectAIR®, a complete state-of-the-art compressed air facility, at the customer’s site. DirectAIR® supplies continuous, high-quality compressed air with no downtime at the lowest overall compressed air cost. It eliminates all maintenance costs and customers simply pay a monthly operating expense, similar to a utility bill.

After the DirectAIR® site was installed, the customer saw a significant reduction in electricity costs. In fact, the new compressed air system has reduced the customer’s total energy consumption by over 50%. This is projected to save the company $140,000 in annual energy costs. The company no longer experiences compressed air issues and production levels have notably increased.
