Step 7. Energy Recovery
The final step in the Marshall Brewson system design is recovering the energy used to make the compressed air. Reducing the carbon foot print a key topic in any business, any way of reusing the energy has to be a serious option. Up to 94% of the energy used in compressing the air via a screw compressor can be recovered via heat recovery be it ducting the hot air into a factory or using a plate heat exchanger to heat up water. The saving can be considerable.
