It is important and cost-effective for any business to conserve energy and aim for greater sustainability.
One must measure the flow in compressed air systems in order to ensure that system's efficiency.
When taking into consideration the costs of such a system, you will find that the investment of the system costs less than the actual power consumption to run it.
Consider as well that industry--your business included--contributes to 40% of worldwide CO2 emissions. Carbon dioxide is expended in the creation of electricity from the use of fossil fuels. As you can see, wasteful emission from various corporations can contribute greatly to the issue of global warming. When faces with the possible crisis of climate change, your business will not only benefit from the supervision of energy consumption to reduce costs, but will also portray to the world its commitment to environmental responsibility.
To remain competitive in the industry it would do well to reap the rewards of saving energy over your competitiors--as well as show goodwill towards prospective customers in your company's eagerness to embrace a more eco-friendly approach.
Mass flow meters, pressure controllers and many other measurement systems have been designed for precisely these issues. One system employs a wide range of measurement to measure the standard volumetric flow, which calls for the thermal mass flow principle. This method is the primary choice for most corporations in that its cost is quite a bargain for its performance. Thankfully, your gas flow meter can be installed in no time as the overall process is quite simple. Calibration is done on one device that may simply be removed from the rest of the system, a huge advantage that makes the system easier to use. Because the mass flow meters is compact, you can judge the consumption of all systems connected to it at a glance.
Because compressed air systems lack any easy way to determine their cost efficiency, investing in mass flow controller helps to deduce the performance of your existing air systems. 40% more compressed air than is actually needed is consumed by corporations that could save a great deal of money by investing in meters that tighten up efficiency. These companies--and they are in the majority, sadly--simply don't have the tools necessary to see their energy use versus the requirements.
It is not only important to save a well-earned dollar, but to also have a conscience towards climate change and future generations. If the public is aware that you are more environmentally conscious than your competition, they will often be more willing to invest in it and give you their business.
Compressed air costs are made up of: the equipment, the maintenance of such equipment and--most expensively--the energy cost itself.
