Compressed air audits can be a supply side audit or a complete system audit. In supply side audits opportunities explored are limited to the supply side, i.e. compressors and the peripheral systems for improving the quality of air and reducing costs. Complete system audits study the complete system, i.e. generation, distribution and usage of air. A demand side audit can be performed to establish the new demand or for designing a new system.

Essentially, these audits help in reducing operating cost, improving productivity, iImproving air quality and eliminating problems associated in production and also in minimizing or eliminating future capital costs.

With compressed air being one of the poorly managed industrial utilities, there is enormous opportunity to change the way it works now. As every industry tries to cut down costs, audits of compressed air systems help in reducing hidden costs and ultimately contribute to increase in revenue. In these trying times we should remember that a rupee spent is a rupee earned.
