Your Guide to the Benefits of Centrifugal Compressors
Small gains in cost and productivity can lead to very positive impacts in industrial manufacturing plants. These small gains are what maintenance and reliability professionals seek to make their day-to-day routines less challenging. During the process of reviewing options for delivering compressed air, in some cases, centrifugal compressors are overlooked due to the initial capital investment. What many in the industry are unaware of is that centrifugal compressors can pay back several times their initial capital costs from maintenance and energy savings alone. Knowing and applying the overall benefits of centrifugal compressors can be a successful method for reducing the overall plant costs involved in supplying compressed air.
The Hidden Costs of Air Compressor Operation
Many manufacturers are unaware of hidden costs of operating their compressed air system. Could this be you? With all capital equipment purchases, the initial cost is not the only expense to consider. Often there are associated costs that are not always apparent at the time of purchase that can significantly affect operational budgets. Therefore, when selecting an air compressor, it is critical to understand the life-cycle costs associated with the unit. “The Hidden Costs of Air Compressor Operation” white paper will: - Review the life-cycle costs of operating an air compressor, including how to calculate the costs of your current system. - Explain hidden costs not apparent at the time of purchase and why these costs should be considered. - Examine how one company used this process to save money while providing a reliable, quality air source.
