SAVE MONEY YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW YOU WERE LOSING
EXPERT ADVICE LED TO A $115,000 SAVING
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”.
