dc.description.abstractThis 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 the selection of an air compressor large enough to deliver sufficient compressed air for the estimated system requirements. As system air requirements grew, additional compressors were added. Today, modern, high quality manufacturing facilities require a more scientific approach. Many manufacturing processes require strict controls over compressed air pressure, temperature and purity levels. Competitive pressures also force manufacturers to drive product and operating costs to an absolute minimum. This paper will detail the initial system design criteria that must be addressed prior to issuing procurement specifications. Once the system design criteria is determined, the equipment specification, selection and installation process will follow.en
