Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems is a one-day introductory course designed to teach facility engineers, operators and maintenance staff how to achieve 15 - 25 percent cost savings through more effective production and use of compressed air.  The Fundamentals course is worth 0.7 CEUs.

Participants will learn how to:

  • Calculate the energy cost of compressed air in their facility
  • Improve compressed air system efficiency and reliability
  • Identify inappropriate uses of compressed air
  • Establish a baseline by which they can measure improvements in compressed air performance and efficiency
  • Match system supply to actual production requirements for pressure and flow
  • Find and fix leaks
  • Establish a leak prevention program
  • Better control compressed air to improve productivity and profitability

Make your company more profitable by getting smarter about compressed air. Through a series of workshops, the Compressed Air Challenge® helps you evaluate your own systems and apply proven techniques. Workshop participants will be able to achieve higher productivity, reduced downtime, greater energy savings, increased product quality and greater efficiency.

Facilitated by Dave Booth, Sullair, U.S. DOE certified facilitator. With over 20 years of experience in the design, maintenance and installation of mechanical and electrical systems, Mr. Booth brings a broad range of diverse problem solving skills and perspective to improving compressed air systems.

Presented as part of KPPC's Environmental Sustainability training series, this workshop is offered in conjunction with the Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO) as part of its national efforts to improve industrial energy efficiency and environmental performance. AMO is part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy and works with diverse partners to develop and deploy technologies and practices that will help U.S. manufacturers succeed in global markets. Through the DOE Innovative Manufacturing Initiative, AMO is a key contributor to the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership.

The office leverages state, utility, and local resources to help manufacturers save energy, reduce climate and environmental impacts, enhance workforce development, and improve national energy security and competitiveness throughout the supply chain.
