    • Energy Efficiency in Compressed Air Systems 

      Hingorani, A.; Pavlov, A. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu)Texas A&M University (http://www.tamu.edu), 2010)
      Energy use in compressed air systems accounts for typically 10% of the total industrial electricity consumption. It also accounts for close to 99% of the CO2 footprint of an air compressor and approximately 80% of the life ...
    • Making Compressed Air System Decisions 

      Porri, R. E. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1996-04)
      This paper presents a decision making process that will permit the design, installation and operation of a high efficiency and reliable compressed air system. The design of a compressed air system was formerly limited to ...
    • Saving Energy in Industrial Compressed Air Systems: Issues and Obstacles in DSM Program Design 

      Trojanowski, D.; Parfomak, P. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.eslwin.tamu.edu), 1993-03)
      Compressed air systems are among the most common and least efficient electrical end uses in industrial plants. Over 50% of plants use compressed air systems. According to various estimates, between 20% and 35% of the energy ...
    • Understanding the Basics of Compressed Air Systems 

      Herron, D. J. (Energy Systems Laboratory (http://esl.tamu.edu), 1997-04)
      Compressed air can be a manufacturing facilities' most expensive utility. Estimates and actual measurements of compressed air systems indicate ten to thirty-five percent of all compressed air generated is lost to leakage ...
