Combat Rising Energy Costs

It has been a long cold winter this year and I just got my utility bill in the mail. I almost fainted. Sad to say, I’m told that I should expect rising utility costs due to the increased cost of producing electricity.

Rising utility costs has a trickle down effect and no one is exempt. Manufacturers, retailers, farmers, food service, etc. all share the same duress. As the cost to do business increases, prices go up. It’s almost like I’m taking the hit twice.

A recent survey by the U.S. Department of Energy showed that for a typical industrial facility, approximately 10% of the electricity consumed is for generating compressed air. For some facilities, compressed air generation may account for 30% or more of the electricity consumed. Compressed air is an on-site generated utility. Very often, the cost of generation is not known; however, some companies use a value of 18-30 cents per 1,000 cubic feet of air.(ref. DOE)

With that being said, EXAIR is your partner in compressed air energy savings. Our products are designed to use less compressed air for blow off, cooling, and non contact motion control. It is as simple as finding the leaks and making the repairs, controlling the air use, and upgrading to efficient engineered blow offs. Request your copy of our blow off guide [link]
