4 steps to have a good nights' sleep
Step 1: Monitoring
Understanding energy consumption empowers you to find savings. Research has shown that a factory spills up to 50% of their compressed air consumption. Companies with an energy management system in place are more profitable in the long run. An energy monitoring system entitles you to save your energy and money by providing insight into the energy flows; not only compressed air but also other utilities.

Step 2: Measure your compressed air/ gas
Compressed air and inert gases like helium, argon, nitrogen, and others, are expensive. For example, compressed air is 8-10 times more expensive than electricity, and industrial gases cost even a multitude this. The measurement from the flow meters will show you where, when and how much air or industrial gas is used. Use actual data to justify improvement investments and maintenance management in order to allocate costs and subsequently save money and energy. How to start measuring?

Step 3: Measure your power consumption
No more guessing how much power is used in every step of your production process, from the compressor to the dryer and pump. Use power meters to gain more insight into your power consumption. It allows you to optimize your production process, quickly detect malfunctions and even increase your efficiency. What are you waiting for?
Step 4: Measure your dew point
Maintaining the dew point of your compressed air or gas system ensures a longer life for your equipment and reduces maintenance costs. It is therefore recommended that the humidity level of your installation is constantly monitored. This insight helps you avoid exceeding acceptable limits.
