DirectAIR®: Compressed Air as an Outsourced Utility

Compressed air systems are a unique utility used in nearly all manufacturing and process industries. With compressed air systems, facilities own the utility and are responsible for all the costs (installation, generation, transmission, and maintenance). Today, outsourcing compressed air as a utility is becoming increasingly popular thanks to the improved ability of service providers to meet customer expectations.

Recently when a Tier 1 automotive supplier was experiencing reliability problems with an older air compressor, we suggested they outsource their compressed air requirements as a utility and take advantage of the DirectAIR® compressed air utility alternative solution.
