Flow and Pressure Control
As much as 20% to 60% of the energy used to operate compressed air systems is wasted! One of the major contributors to this waste is operating air systems at elevated pressures. Well known is the fact that compressed air stored at higher pressures can provide a capacitance effect for sudden hign volume demands. Less known is that higher pressure storage that is not properly controlled and managed will result in not just the additional energy to compress to a higher pressure but also significantly higher air consumption from all compressed air users! Ingersoll Rand flow and pressure controllers have been developed to optimize systems in order to eliminate waste by efficiently and effectively managing system storage through flow and pressure control.
