Compressed Air Auditing
Sparco Engineering Provides the compressed air auditing service for manufacturing industry. The auditing service includes the entire important factor such as (Dew Point, Compressor Air Quality, Leak Detection, Compressor Power Consumption & Efficiency, Mass flow rate, Pressure and total value of gas consumption). Our service provides the important knowledge for the client on air consumption and the compressor condition. A compressed air system audit can highlight the performance due to system leaks, inappropriate true costs of compressed air and identify simple uses, demand events, poor system design, and system opportunities to improve efficiency and misuse, and total system dynamics are calculated, productivity. In some cases, the local electric and a written report with a recommended course utility will help finance such an audit. of action is provided.
Important aspects of a Compressed air system users should consider below. using an independent auditor to examine their compressed air system. Several firms exist that System Issues specialize in compressed air system audits. System issues go beyond examining the Audits are also performed by electric utilities, performance of an individual compressed air equipment distributors and manufacturers, energy system component and, instead, examine how service companies, and engineering firms. Sparco Engineering don’t only provide the compressed air issues but also the solution to maintain the system.
And components on both the supply and demand side informed to the consumer should be aware of the system interact. Auditing typically address quality and comprehensiveness of audits can a number of systems issues. These are discussed vary. Auditing report provide below, and many are addressed in more detail in recommendations which are systems-neutral and other Compressed Air Systems Fact Sheets. leakages mainly tagged carefully and classified based upon how bad the leakage in the pipe.
- Taking baselines from new machines, returning older machines to peak condition for fresh baselines, using hardware and software (VP instruments) products, and working with OEMs on energy efficiency can help to reduce energy costs, improve performance and achieve greater sustainability.
- Air quality audits can identify particulates, oil or water in the compressed air, which hinders performance and reduces machine and component life expectancy.
- A machine that remains running when no processing is being done still consumes air. This reduces energy efficiency and can be remedied by designing operating cycles that shut the air off when the machine isn’t in operation.
Machine and system level Audits
Calculating the peak efficiency of a new compressor based system can be done easily by measuring variables such as pressure profile, flow profile and timing strokes to develop a performance baseline. As the system ages, deviations in any of the profiles indicate diminished performance, which can then be investigated and rectified.
“Air quality audits are essential because poor air quality often prevents achieving maximum performance and life span from system devices.”
An air consumption audit is an ideal tool, however, for equipment that’s been in operation for years with no baseline documentation. Although it might not restore a system to like-new condition, it can improve its efficiency. During an audit, a specialist uses measuring equipment and analysis software to inspect a machine in standby, off and running modes. Consumption figures for each mode are compiled and the machine is evaluated on a component-by-component basis.it gives the clear idea how efficient the air dryer system.
The outcome of an air audit can be significant. Consider the case of a manufacturer of baby diapers that couldn’t determine the reason for a pressure drop in its production system. An air audit revealed the cause to be a clogged air filter. The replacement of a filter led to a 10% increase in system efficiency and provided an illustration of the importance of routine maintenance.
Air quality audits are essential because poor air quality often prevents achieving maximum performance and life span from pneumatic devices. Particulates, oil or water in the compressed air supplied to a machine reduces machine and component life expectancy. The audit guides the efforts to improve air quality. Typically, an outside auditor is best equipped to report on air quality and can give suggestions for improvement.
