NCA (National Compressed Air) understands that there are costs associated with the production of compressed air. But many users are paying more than they need to. As a leading provider of industrial compressed air systems, NCA knows that there are more efficient ways to operate air compressors, and its auditing service is designed to identify wasteful compressed air practices to help companies realize savings in both energy and maintenance costs.
An eight-step approach
Energy costs represent as much as 75 per cent of the total cost of ownership of a compressed air system. But the auditing system employed by NCA — the Quincy Systems Auditing Service — can reduce energy costs by as much as 50 per cent, and maintenance costs by 30 per cent through a detailed, eight-step approach.
It’s a system that involves an on-site analysis that can take up to a week. The company’s expert staff will:
- Analyze supply equipment;
- Measure storage capability;
- Qualify air demand;
- Resolve production problems;
- Create system diagrams;
- Determine operating costs;
- Develop an action plan; and
- Provide the customer with a complete report of findings and recommendations.
The result is reduced energy costs, maintenance and downtime.
“By simply changing how to produce and use compressed air more efficiently with your existing equipment, the results can have a significant effect to your bottom line,” the company explains.
In addition to its auditing service, NCA sells the latest, most advanced energy-saving compressed air equipment in the industry, and services the equipment it sells. Its variable speed/displacement air compressors, cycling air dryers, compressor control systems, steady pressure control valves and more have saved companies thousands of dollars a year.
