Lower the Pressure to Keep Your Compressed Air System Healthy by Bill Scales and Ron Marshall

Just as lowering blood pressure reduces stress on your heart, lowering your compressed air pressure reduces stress on the heart of your plant, the air compressor.

Manufacturing processes require adequate compressed air pressure to properly function. To avoid problems, production personnel who often believe that "more is better" will increase the pressure, but elevating pressures to higher levels than required increased input power consumed by the motor driving the compressor. In addition to this, the higher pressure causes higher compressed air flow consumed by unregulated air demands, such as air leaks, and thus further increases energy and other associated costs. Training at the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC) has addressed some air system problems, such as excessive pressure drop, that force plant air pressure to be maintained at a higher than necessary pressure.
