Cost of plant air
Understand how to recognize air losses and calculate the cost
One popular trademark of SIPART PS2 is the almost legendary minimum air loss. The air loss associated with conventional positioners is very expensive. SIPART PS2, by comparison, uses air only when required, with the result that the SIPART PS2 quickly pays for itself.
Have you ever wondered how to quantify something you can’t see? How about equating that something to dollars? What if that “something” was plant air and your valve positioner was consuming a lot of it? How do you quantify that, and is it even worth your time?
Learn more about the cost of air from our webinar. Key takeaways include:
Understand how to recognize air losses and calculate their cost
Discover why an intelligent valve positioner can realize major savings
Compare piezo technology vs traditional positioner construction
Cost of compressed air
Air is one of the easiest sources of power to transmit and use. Unfortunately, it is also one of the most costly to generate. Recently, compressed air leaks have become one of the largest contributors to inefficiencies in industrial plant systems. The Department of Energy states that air leaks waste 20-30 percent of a compressor's output in a typical plant.
