Improving Energy Efficiency and Performance of Compressed Air Systems


Compressed air systems are among the highest cost and least energy efficiency systems in manufacturing.  Come to the next Energy Roundtable where Hank Van Ormer, founder of Air Power USA Inc., will show you what you can do to reduce the energy costs and increase the performance of your compressed air system.  The team from Air Power USA, Inc. have been among our most requested presenters over the years due to their vast knowledge of complex compressor systems and their extensive real-world experience.


Air Power USA is an independent consulting firm specializing in compressor equipment and systems.  Their approach to reducing compressor operating costs in commercial and manufacturing does not focus on equipment replacement, but starts with no-cost/low-cost approaches and evaluation of the entire system from compressor equipment, to piping and storage, to end use, and shows how you can squeeze fat savings out of thin air in each. If you have specific questions about issues, problems, or aspects of your compressor system, Air Power urges you to come to this event prepared to discuss them.
