CA System Analysis...
 As participants of the Compressed Air Challenge® Fundamentals of Compressed Air Seminar learn, a compressed air system analysis can highlight the true costs of compressed air and identify opportunities to improve efficiency and productivity. Compressed air system users should consider using an auditor to analyze their compressed air system. A number of firms specialize in compressed air system analysis, and electric utilities, equipment distributors and manufacturers, energy service companies and engineering firms, also perform it. “When selecting a service provider, it is important that factors, in addition to price, be considered,” says Niff Ambrosino, chief operating officer of Scales Industrial Technologies and a CAC® Fundamentals and Advanced Instructor. “The qualifications and capabilities of the audit technicians, and reputation in the local industrial community are key and should also be considered.” Read the rest of this article
