Air Treatment

Quality compressed air for efficient pneumatics

For engineers, compressed air is such an important resource that it is often cited as the fourth utility in industry – after electricity, water and gas. Studies estimate that ten per cent of all industrial energy is used just to compress air.

By following along, you can be confident in designing and building an air purification system that exactly matches the needs of the task at hand with no frills.

If you are looking to start your journey, or expand your knowledge on this topic, you can take a look at our expert report about compressed air quality. Otherwise, if you are willing to design the most suitable air treatment system for your process, then our air treatment guide is the best tool for you.

“Compressed air treatment  is the basis for the reliable operation of any pneumatic system.  
Whether you use compressed air for standard applications, or as a process medium, it must always be adapted to the purpose. Thus, it is possible to achieve, or exceed, the declared service life of pneumatic components, which can save considerably on maintenance costs, directly and indirectly reduce the company's carbon footprint and improve the hygienic conditions of the environment where compressed air is used.

Release the pressure  

 By Andy Still, Industry Projects Manager, Energy, Europe

APRIL 2021
The subject is more than serious. Pneumatic equipment accounts for about 20% of all factory power consumption and there is a proven way to improve energy efficiency: reduce the operating pressure. SMC explains how companies can achieve this objective and thus fall in line with manufacturing’s most important current trend.
