Eliminate Inappropriate Uses of Compressed Air
*Equipment that is temporarily not in use during the production cycle.
**Equipment that is no longer in use either due to a process change or malfunction.
The table below shows inappropriate uses of compressed air in an automobile assem- bly plant. The plant took several action steps identified in the table to eliminate or reduce these inappropriate uses. Peak flow is identified in cubic feet per minute (cfm).
The plant audit showed that the energy used to generate the compressed air averages 18 kW/100 cfm. The aggregate electric rate at the plant is $0.05 per kWh.
