Compressed air is used widely throughout industry and is often considered the 'fourth utility' at many facilities. Almost every industrial plant, from a small machine shop to an immense pulp and paper mill, has some type of compressed air system. In many cases, the compressed air system is so vital that the facility cannot operate without it. This 3-hour online course discusses the basics of compressed air systems including compressor types, power sources used to drive the compressor, types of system controls, compressor system accessories, and uses of compressed air.
This US Department of Energy sourcebook that this course is based on is designed to provide compressed air system users with a reference that outlines opportunities for system performance improvements. It is intended to make compressed air system users aware of the performance improvement potential, details some of the significant opportunities, and directs users to additional sources of assistance.
