Compressed Air Airnergy analysis for carbon conscious industry
With increasing energy costs a fact of life for business, and carbon and emissions levies and taxes a looming reality. The performance and efﬁ ciency of your compressed are systems have never been more important. Potential energy savings not only reduce the environmental impact of your business, they also return money to your bottom line.
The CompAir Airnergy Analysis will help your business meet the requirements of the Energy Efﬁ ciency Opportunity Act 2006 in conjunction with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGERS) Act 2007.
System Audit Pay Backs
- Meet benchmarks for State and Federal grant assistance.
- Identify and manage reductions in power use and CO2 Emissions.
- 30% + energy savings on compressed air usage.
- Typical payback outcomes 1-2 years.
- Reduce over capitalisation of equipment, either due to upgrading or expansion.

A thorough Airnergy analysis can commonly result in energy savings of up to 30%. However in utilising our detailed demand side auditing and analysis process, we have been able to achieve savings of up to 50% in some installations.
10 to 20% of savings are commonly found on the supply side
- Technology & controls
- Installation issues
20 to 30% savings are commonly found on the demand side
- Compressed air leaks
- Artiﬁcial demand
- System dynamics
