Reducing System Pressure – Cost Savings Calculator
When the compressor discharge pressure is set above the minimum required rate of the consumer , energy is being wasted. The goal is to calculate and set the correct set point and improve the system. Below is the calculator to help you calculate the amount of energy that is being wasted. The calculation is based on a widley excepted assumption that every 0.1 bar (1.5psi) pressure reduction incurs a drop in energy consumption of about 0.7%.
