Revised Compressed Air Sourcebook for Industry
December 30, 2003
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Compressed Air Challengeﬠ(CAC) have just published the latest edition of Improving Compressed Air System Performance: A Sourcebook for Industry. Compressed air is widely used and is considered the "fourth utility" at many industrial facilities. Review the revised edition to learn about ways to improve industrial compressed air system performance.
This valuable technical reference points out performance improvement potential and details key opportunities. The sourcebook also offers practical guidelines and related resources and tools available through DOE, CAC, and industry. It describes why the "systems approach" is a cost-effective way to operate and maintain industrial compressed air systems. Using this approach, compressed air system operators analyze the supply and demand sides of the system and how they interact.
Use the sourcebook to:
- Gain an understanding compressed air system basics
- Identify specific system-wide and component-level opportunities to enhance compressed air system performance
- Find resources, tools, and information from DOE, CAC, and others in the compressed air marketplace.
The sourcebook contains three sections:
Introduction to Compressed Air Systemshis discussion provides an overview of compressed air systems and describes system components. The section also characterizes applications of compressed air in different industries.
Performance Improvement Opportunity Roadmapearn about specific opportunities for enhancing compressed air system performance. A set of fact sheets describes these opportunities in detail.
Where to Find Helpeview this comprehensive list of associations and other organizations involved in the compressed air system marketplace. You will also find a listing of resources and tools, such as publications, software, training courses, and videos.
The sooner you learn about available compressed air system improvement opportunities, the sooner your company could begin improving system performance and the bottom line.
