Optimising compressed air systems: Reducing costs and enhancing sustainability

11 July, 2024

In today’s climate of fluctuating energy prices, the inefficiency of compressed air delivery systems can be a significant financial burden. System leaks and outdated filters exacerbate this issue, but an optimised setup can yield substantial savings. Donaldson, a leader in filtration solutions, has demonstrated this potential through a series of efficiency projects.


New maintenance free compressed air filter does the job of three conventional filters

02 July, 2024

ERIKS UK & Ireland has launched a new compressed air filtration technology - Expel. The compressed air filter continually removes 99.9999% of water, oil emulsion fluids and solid particulates down to 1 micron. Its design means that users never have to change any internal elements, but simply fit and forget. Typically, it would take three conventional compressed air filters – one each for water, oil emulsion and solid particulates – to do the job of one Expel

Dual-speed compressor

02 May, 2024

Atlas Copco Compressors says it has introduced the world’s first dual-speed compressor, the GA 11-30 FLX. Positioned between fixed-speed compressors and those with variable speed drives (VSD), the GA FLX gives compressed air users a third option. Thanks to the dual-speed technology, the start-up peak, unload power and transient losses are significantly lower than other fixed speed compressors. As a result, the GA FLX consumes up to 20% less energy, positioning it as the most energy-efficient fixed-speed compressor within the portfolio.

How much do air leaks really cost?

08 February, 2024

We all know that compressed air leaks are a huge source of energy (and money) waste, but do you know how much they really cost? After conducting around 60 surveys in different facilities from different industries, using an ultrasound camera, UE Systems concluded that the average leak would cost around £1200 per year. When you think that any industrial site will have dozens or even hundreds of leaks, you can quickly realise the savings potential. H&P reports.
