CAGI and EERE Announce Remaining 2002 Compressed Air Training Venues
June 7, 2002
The Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI) and DOE's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy are offering two seminars, at locations across the country, designed to increase compressed air system efficiency. The seminars, scheduled from July through December 2002, teach participants to understand, measure, and control the operation of compressed air.
Thousands of facilities engineers, plant maintenance personnel and compressed air users have attended these compressed air seminars and have reported savings or efficiency gains of up to 30% in their compressed air systems.
The more basic of the two courses, Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems, is a one-day course designed to help facility engineers, maintenance staff, and operators realize cost savings through more productive and efficient use of compressed air. Proven techniques to calculate energy costs, identify compressed air waste from leaks and inappropriate use, establish best practices maintenance programs, and effectively control air compressors are discussed. The course fee is $300 per person and includes breakfast, snacks, lunch, and training materials.
Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems is a two-day course designed for the more experienced compressed air user. The seminar teaches participants to use data-collecting tools and analysis techniques to understand their compressed air use. Participants will learn to:
- Understand supply and demand issues
- Understand complex compressor controls
- Measure the impact of compressed air quality on production
- Sell compressed air system improvement projects to management.
The fee for Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems is $600 per person and includes continental breakfasts, snacks, lunches, and training materials.
