This blog is a clear example of the “quick fix” open air line which uses exceptionally large volumes of air for an application that can be solved with an efficient, well thought out solution. The savings benefits of an engineered air nozzle are significant.

]]>For the calculation of 14 SCFM @80psig increased to 95psig, you got 16.2 SCFM. When you calculated reducing the air to 55psig, you got 10.3 SCFM. When you calculated the difference of the SCFM saved, you left out the decimal in the 16.2 SCFM and typed 162 SCFM ( I don’t see where you got the x 10 multiplier). So in reality your SCFM saved is only 5.9 considering 16.2-10.3 is 5.9.

With this in mind, 5.9 SCFM x 60 minutes/hour x 8 hours/day x 5 days/week x 52 weeks/year is only 736,320 SCFM. If you multiply it by the .25 average facility air generation cost and divide it by 1000 SCF, your annual savings is only $184.08 not $4,733.04. (Please feel free to check MY math as well) ]]>
