Energy Savings

Each kW of compressed air is 7-8 times more expensive than a kW of electricity. Chicago Pneumatic set up a service with the objective to identify and quantify energy & cost savings with respect to generation of compressed air.

  • Most compressor installations run at too high pressure (most end uses are designed to operate between 80-125 psig)
  • Every 1 bar/14.5 PSI drop in pressure output, reduces energy consumption by around 7%
  • Most compressor systems are not shutdown during non production hours, wasting huge amounts of compressed air to leakages
  • Most multiple compressor systems do not have central controller to anticipate fluctuations in air demand
  • In most compressor systems no Variable Speed compressor is installed to anticipate fluctuations in air demand


Frequency driven units: VSD Regulation
The V(ariable) S(peed) D(drive) regulating system offers the capability to match perfectly compressor capacity to air demand.
