Compressed Air
​Industrial customers commit significant capital resources for compressed air systems that act as power sources for tools and equipment used for pressurizing, atomizing, agitating, and mixing applications. Optimizing compressed air systems can improve energy efficiency 20 to 50 percent, and dramatically reduce operations costs.
​Educational Compressed Air Materials

The Bonneville Power Administration created the roadmap to help utilities find energy savings in compressed air systems. There is also information for end-users.

The tools below were designed to help utilities communicate about compressed air.

Leak Detection Information  
  • Leak Detection Checklist
    Leakage can account for up to 50 percent of a compressed air system cost. This paper discusses how a leak detection program can save the end-user money.
​Compressed Air Challenge training series
The Compressed Air Challenge™ (CAC) has developed a series of training seminars to help you evaluate your own compressed air system and apply proven techniques to reduce operating costs and improve your productivity, product quality, system reliability and competitiveness.
  • Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems (Level 1)
    This one-day training provides attendees the opportunity to use their own system data in seminar exercises, as well as mastery of compressed air system components and techniques. Attendees can apply training and implement changes immediately upon return to their work place; thus, compressed air system optimization can lead to higher productivity, energy savings, increased product quality and greater efficiency.
  • Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems (Level 2)
    This advanced, two-day training provides in-depth technical information on troubleshooting and making improvements to industrial compressed air systems. Attendees will learn how to develop a system profile and address point-of-use issues, including determining actual air quality requirements and investigating and reducing highest point-of-use pressure requirements.
