Analysis

Letting the Data Pave the Way

After we collect data about your compressed air system, we analyze this data and provide you with a specific assessment of your facility or facilities.

During this process, we will:

  • Develop key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Build an accurate model of your system's compressed air usage and needs
  • Identify ways to improve your compressed air system

We can help you to reduce your system operating pressure, improve compressor reliability, or reduce the system downtime. Not only will we show you what these methods would look like, but we will also develop implementation plans and discuss how to go about making these system changes.

As part of these improvement measures, we’ll estimate the savings that each action can provide, as well as estimate the total weekly, monthly, and annual savings you can obtain.
