This is an eight (8) hour webinar (2 x 4-4.5 hour sessions), which means you can help us improve and develop it for full implementation.
It covers the following topics:
- Fundamentals Review – Test Your Knowledge
- Case Studies – See the Potential
- Organization of Assessments
- What Needs to be Collected?
- How Assessments are Done – Gathering Facts & Data
- Reviewing the Results – What is the Data is Telling Us?
- System Improvement & Energy Reduction Opportunities
- Developing a Technical & Business Case
- Final Project Measurement and Verification
- Case Study – From Assessment to Final Project
- Summary and Evaluation
Course instructors: Ron Marshall and Frank Moskowitz
Why was this course was developed?
For the past 20+ years we have been training end users, distributors, consultants, and others on how to improve compressed air systems. The Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems training provides excellent awareness of the basic components, system overview, and associated costs of this expensive product.
The feedback received from evaluations and research showed a need for additional training, but not to the same level as the CAC's Advanced Management of Compressed Air Systems. To meet this need we have developed this one-day seminar designed to provide more detailed systems information, but also to show how to tie it all together to advance an improvement project for management approval.
- Explain, through case study examples, how following the recommendations of compressed air system assessments can improve system performance,
- Understand important supply and demand side concepts and relationships and how they relate to operating cost,
- Understand how compressed air system assessments are organized, including coordination, logistics, and communications,
- Recognize what essential data needs to be measured and collected, and what makes up a comprehensive audit report.
- Understand the requirements for selecting a compressed air system assessor,
- Understand the meaning of common discoveries and observations made from the results of data collection and analysis,
- Recognize of common improvement measures and ways to calculate savings,
- Understand the basic elements of a project justification, including creating a technical and business cases, and using energy and non-energy benefits,
- Understand the importance of example successful case studies where technical case and business case is presented,
- Know the requirements for project verification and adjustments at the end of projects the importance of continuous monitoring to ensure continued efficiency,
