Energy Efficiency

Green Building Council Logo

Compressed air represents one of the largest oportunities for immediate energy savings and plant management is often surprised to hear that compressed air can represent 20 – 50% fo a plant’s energy bill. Using a sepcifically designed and efficient compressed air piping system can reduce your plant’s energy bill by 30 – 60% within 24 months.

Energy costs associated with a compressed air system are significant. For example, when analyzed over a ten-year period, the cost of energy consumed by an average compressed air system exceeded other costs, including the initial cost of equipment and installation. The cost of electric may exceed the cost of the capital equipment, each year! System pressure drops are one cause of inefficient energy use. A 14.5 psi pressure drop uses 10 percent additional energy. These drops can result from a number of sources, including poor system configuration, interior pipe surface corrosion, and compressed air contamination.

Transair is also an environmentally sustainable and responsible product, and reduces the carbon footprint by 80% over steel piping installations. The materials used to produce Transair pipe and fittings are 100% recyclable and guaranteed silcone free and meet the requirements set by the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification credits.

Parker Transair offers an Energy Savings Calculator that compares using a Transair system with other systems constructed in traditional materials.

The Energy Savings Calculator determines the savings and the ROI timeframe using compressor data, such as the pressure, power or throughput, the number of annual service hours, the type of dryer, plus data from the network, such as the length of the main circuit, the type of open or closed circuit, the pipe material used and the local cost of electricity, including an inflation factor.

Using your company data, you will be able to see why Parker Transair is the most efficient solution and the best option in the long term. And Alabama Bolt & Supply is the distributor to deliver this solution to you!
