Energy used to operate a compressor

Cost of Compressed Air

Compressed air is used in almost every facility and manufacturing plant. The cost of generation, however, is often overlooked by plant managers, maintenance, and production. Air is not free. Ultrasound can be used to save $10,000's, even $100,000's annually in energy savings.

According to a U.S. Department of Energy survey, between 10% and 30% of electricity consumed is for compressed air. Most manufacturing facilities use compressed air. A significant amount of energy is lost due to waste and air leaks.

The typical compressed air system uses only 50% of its air supply for production. The rest is wasted or lost to air leaks.
