Efficient Compressed Air Production

Generally treated as support function, compressed air is widely used in production facilites for the operation of process machinery and the actuation and control of pneumatic valves, cylinders and controllers. However, the quality and availability of compressed air may have a significant effect on the plant's core production. The Vaisala DRYCAP Hand-Held Dew Point Meter DM70 was used for measuring pressure dew points in their AirAudit, part of their AirWorx service. The audit measures a number of parameters associated with the performance of compressed air system, aiming at improving their energy efficiency.
