En­ergy wastage from com­pressed air sys­tems can go un­no­ticed be­cause sys­tem in­ef­fi­cien­cies aren’t al­ways ob­vi­ous. An au­dit by a com­pressed air specialist can iden­tify op­por­tu­ni­ties to save en­ergy through­out your site – from air gen­er­a­tion to dis­tri­bu­tion and end use. Red Stag Tim­ber’s au­dit re­vealed op­por­tu­ni­ties to re­duce leak­age and im­prove com­pres­sor con­trols. By mak­ing changes the busi­ness is achiev­ing a 48% re­duc­tion in com­pres­sor elec­tric­ity use, sav­ing around $115,000 a year. It also im­proved pro­duc­tiv­ity, and in­creased their com­pet­i­tive­ness in ex­port mar­kets.

Andrew Lawes En­vi­ron­men­tal Ad­min­is­tra­tor for Red Stag says: “Ex­pert help from com­pressed air sys­tems spe­cial­ists was key to iden­ti­fy­ing the best so­lu­tions for our busi­ness”.

Many in­dus­tries can ben­e­fit from im­prove­ments to com­pressed air sys­tems. Talk to an EECA Busi­ness pro­gramme part­ner for ex­pert ad­vice and to un­lock any fund­ing that may be avail­able.
