FOR BLOWER AND COMPRESSOR SYSTEMS
Lone Star can perform detailed system audits or simple assessments on blowers or compressors in air, gas, pressure or vacuum applications. These engineered services can offer many benefits to our clients from improving reliability, saving energy or planning for future expansion or retraction plans. Audits generally offer payback for the investment in just a few months of operations and could save a considerable amount of money.
Plant processes often change over time and it makes sense this demand change will have an effect on your blower or compressor systems. In general, blowers are mid-sized nearly 80% of the time from the time of start up. Compressors generally waste 50% of the air they create. It is rare an audit does not find obvious deficiencies.
Beyond the mechanical blower or compressor, audits focus on the control system that locally controls a given unit but more importantly how it interfaces with the process that it serves. It is this disconnect between operations that often presents the highest opportunity to save energy.
TYPES OF AUDITS
Simple walk through and make general observations as to best practices by an experienced engineer.
COMPRESSED AIR AUDIT
These are very detailed evaluation that takes days or even weeks and often includes data logging and sample measurements.
