At John Henry Foster, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality products and services available. Even more, quality customer service starts internally with our very own employees continuing education. Matt Vermedahl (account manager), Steve Cherney and Taylor Young (both capital sales support specialists) attended Xcel Energy’s Compressed Air Challenge: Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems technical training last week.
Reducing Our Customer’s Energy Costs
“The focus was on saving energy in compressed air systems. We learned different ways to help reduce our customer’s energy costs. We worked on formulas for determining their annual system energy costs, which would help show the customer how much they could potentially save,” explained Cherney.
Compressed Air Challenge Technical Training
The Xcel Energy’s Compressed Air Challenge technical training was a way for attendees to get hands-on guidance. Similarly, attendees learned about a variety of topics. These included how to calculate compressed air system’s energy costs, learn about ways to improve compressed air system efficiency and reliability and see how others are achieving 15-25% cost savings through more effective production and use of compressed air.
“I highly recommend attending Xcel Energy’s Compressed Air Challenge technical trainingin the future, it was very informative. Above all, we discussed there are several ways to save on energy costs. From appropriate air use, quantifying air leaks in the system, air receiver options & the type of air compressor(s) in their system and not everyone is always aware of these savings,” concludes Cherney.
