Step 6. Control and management
The use of a management controller or a compressor with a variable speed drive inverter can help reduce the system pressure of any air system, the band width on a standard air compressor is usually at least 0.5 bar but with the aid of a controller or inverter the band width of a compressor can be reduced down to 0.1 bar. If an air system pressure can be reduced by 1 bar an energy saving of 6% can be achieved as well as a reduction of any air leaks in the system.
