From Experience: Bringing the Outside In
Less horsepower is required for an air compressor to run with cooler intake air. Every 5°F drop in air inlet temperature can result in approximately a 1% increase in compressed air with the same horsepower input. In many plants, though, air intakes for air compressors are located in the same room with the compressors, boilers, or both. Read the May issue of Hixson’s From Experience newsletter to learn about reducing energy costs for air compressors.
