Susan Hodges, system design engineer, explains in a new blog the different costs associated with compressed air that must be considered when purchasing new equipment. The blog is posted on the Kaeser Compressors Inc.s website, www.kaesertalksshop.
"People often only think about the initial purchase price of a compressor," explained Hodges. "Unfortunately, that neglects other significant cost factors such as installation, energy efficiency, maintenance, and lost time and materials. It's important to consider each of these areas to truly understand the complete cost of owning a particular piece of equipment."
For more technical resources for the compressed air industry, Kaeser's blog features additional articles such as, "Receiver Tanks for Small Compressed Air Systems", "Piston Versus Rotary Screw Compressors" and "CAGI Data Sheets: An Apples to Apples Comparison."
