Air compressor guide
Kaeser Compressors has published a guide to understanding and measuring the cost of generating compressed air. The guide explains the various factors that affect efficiency in the compressed air system, and outlines steps to dramatically increase the efficiency of existing systems. The guide demonstrates that in 125 hp applications, the annual cost of electrical power to drive compressors can be twice the cost of the compressor unit. Over a typical 10-year period, a compressor that cost $40,000 can accumulate up to $800,000 in electric power costs.
