Big saving possibilities when blowing with compressed air

Big saving possibilities when blowing with compressed air

Posted by Viktor Gustavsson

The key to optimize compressed air usage is to identify all blowing applications. They are not only the applications that use the most compressed air, they are also the applications with biggest saving possibilities. If the compressed air is used in the correct way, it is possible to lower the compressed air consumption by 35 percentages.

Compressed air usage in manufacturing industry

In Europe, approximately ten percentage of the industries energy usage is used for creating compressed air. 20 percent of compressed air is used by actuators and about five percent is used by compressed air driven tools. 15 percent is lost due to leakage. The biggest use of compressed air, utilizing 50%, is blowing with compressed air. If you think about it it’s not so strange. A cylinder doesn’t use nearly as much compressed air as a blowing application. 

Optimize blowing with compressed air  

One simple way to optimize the usage of compressed air is to install an air nozzle. This will not only optimize usage, it also makes it possible to use the surrounding air, halving the sound level and minimizing the risk of occupational accidents. This is possible thanks to a special blowing technique. If the compressed air is used in the correct way, it is possible to lower the compressed air consumption by 35 percentages.

 

Optimizing compressed air does not only mean energy savings, but also cost  savings. Find out how much your compressed air cost.
