Gardner Denver has released a new guide exploring how businesses can improve their compressors’ energy efficiency, overall performance and total cost of ownership.
The guide highlights factors such as correct specification and prioritising whole life costs. It also explains how owners and operators can make savings and efficiency gains by carrying out an energy audit, and what an audit from Gardner Denver entails. The guide also highlights the common issues that can reduce a compressor’s overall efficiency, and how these can be resolved. It goes on to describe the increasing importance of the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 in maintaining compressor efficiency and optimising performance. Specifically, the guide explores how Gardner Denver’s cloud-based air management platform, iConn, can deliver analytics to help operators identify when, where and how energy waste occurs. Keith Atkinson, EMEAI sales manager at Gardner Denver, said that identifying inefficiencies and optimising compressor performance is increasingly vital for owners and operators looking to improve their bottom line. He added that energy costs account for over 80% of a compressor’s total cost of ownership. The new guide can be downloaded here.
