If we talk about operational costs of compressed air plants we are actually talking about the energy costs as they make up about 70 to 80 % of the total costs of a compressed air plant. Depending on the size of the plant this means considerable operating costs. Even in smaller plants this may quickly add up to 10 000 to 20 000 € per year. This is an amount which can be considerably reduced – even in case of well operated and maintained plants. For sure this also applies to your compressed air plant! Which actual costs per generated m³ air do you actually have? Which energy is gained due to the waste heat recovery? What is the total performance balance of your plant? How high are the differential pressures of single filters? How high is the humidity (pressure dew point)? How much compressed air is used? By means of the intelligent chart recorder DS 500 mobile and the suitable sensors and meters all these questions can be answered easily. For example by means of a long-term measurement over 7 days, data recording and evaluation at the PC.
