Menno believes that 80%..90% of compressed air saving opportunities are to be found outside of the compressor room and that supply side projects like adding new compressors (fixed or VSD) or implementing controls system should always come after a thorough demand side reduction process where the air distribution, air demand (incl. leaks/artificial demand/inappropriate use/system losses), quality of air and reliability of the system are continuously measured, trended and reported to support fact based system adjustments & improvements.
