“You can’t pull money out of thin air, but you can out of Compressed Air.”
Lee Majors, P.E., Process & Power, Inc.
Lee Majors has spent the last 20 years in the compressed air industry after working at a major oil refinery as a Reliability Engineer for rotating equipment. His experience includes roles in sales, service and repair, and technical analysis of compressed air systems. Lee also offers project management of implementations, and educational training on optimizing compressed air systems.
A professionally conducted analysis, or comprehensive audit, of your compressed air system provides you with the only sure way to manage the often mysterious workings of your air system. If there is accountability for meeting a certain ROI - and there is in most companies, a true, comprehensive audit will identify and quantify opportunities to: reduce operating costs, improve manufacturing productivity, minimize power consumption, and reduce capital spending.
The problems associated with operating a modern compressed air system are fairly complex and often camouflaged to the untrained eye. At the same time, many companies have cut back the internal resources dedicated to defining and solving those problems. That's where a professional Air Audit can help by addressing the total process of producing compressed air... not just the compressors. It's about taking compressed air, looking at it as your fourth utility, and making compressed air as dependable as your electric, water and gas services.
A true air audit will help plant operators optimize their systems and often result in turning off compressors, leading to higher efficiencies. In the past you asked compressor manufacturers, like Ingersoll Rand, to build the best engineered, most reliable, energy-efficient air compressors in the industry. But in today's global business climate, you need more than great equipment to survive and thrive. To drive operational excellence we must go beyond the components of an air system and find solutions to the operating issues every air consumer faces.
Your air system problems require total solutions. A professionally conducted Air Audit will help you define system problems, whether the problems are in demand, distribution or supply, allowing you to develop cost-efficient solutions that meet your return on investment goals.
