Most Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About JHFoster's Compressed Air Evaluation Services
An energy evaluation generally discovers enough problems, and opportunities to correct those problems to pay for itself by saving tens of thousands of dollars in operating expenses.
Our evaluations offer an in-depth look at the entire operation of a compressed air system. We utilize advanced software to establish a baseline that addresses the “what if” scenarios for system improvements and we provide a detailed and accurate analysis including:
- State-of-the-art equipment monitors kW, amps, pressure, flow and dew point
- Breakdown of flow usage
- Supply equipment assessment
- Distribution system assessment
- Point-of-use assessment
- System upgrade recommendations
- Return on investment applied to all recommendations
- Supporting data (real-time monitoring graphs)
Key problems include improper application of compressor controls, compressors competing against each other, too many running at the same time, and fluctuating plant pressures.
