Compressors work best when the air intake is positioned to take in the cleanest, coldest, and driest air available (this is usually outside air). Correct air intake positioning can improve efficiency by up to 3%. Savings in Other System Function Areas Other areas for savings are available by ensuring good heat exchange on intercoolers and aftercoolers, (ensure there are no internal blockages and that dirt is not allowed to build a thermal COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEMS 34 blanket on the cooler); ensuring correct settings and operation of dryers; and ensuring proper sizing of the distribution system.

6. Thermal Image vs. ) 45 ELECTRICAL CONNECTIVITY 46 the equipment. Infra red imaging systems require substantial investment in both training and cash outlay for the equipment. An alternative to equipment purchase is to investigate contractors who perform IR thermographic plant inspections at a per diem rate. When performing electrical connectivity inspections with infra red devices, the equipment is tested live. Therefore, as a safety precaution, it is essential that two persons conduct the inspection with (at least) one of the individuals being a qualified and licensed electrician.

If leakage was water rather than air, there would be little doubt that system repair would be given high priority, but because air is difficult to see, smell, and in some cases hear, it is often blissfully ignored. )) COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEMS 30 rating is linked to a specified leak hole diameter. 80 per hour, or a total annual cost of $15,900 (based on a 24 hour a day, 365 day compressor operation). This kind of financial loss is easily avoided and totally unacceptable. Leaks do not represent a constant power loss.
