Optimise performance of 5 compressors, dryers receivers

by Michael
(PJ, Malaysia)

Hi Bill,


How to optimize performance of 5 compressors, 5 dryers and 5 receivers in one plant.

My new work place have 5 compressors (range fr 160hp to 100hp), 5 dryers (range fr 5.6 - 16 m3/min)and 5 receiver tanks, all line up individually, piping only join up after dryers...do you think we can make it better?
personally i thinks this will have high fluctuation on every single combo...

hope to hear from your advise on this..


thanks
Michael

Can't tell without some idea of your plant demand will be, and perhaps a bit on whether they are vsr

In general, you want them to come on in such a way to minimise the total number of starts, which of course uses extra energy.

Otpimizing air system in a plant

This is well beyond the scope of this website, Michael.

I think you need to have a local air expert visit, assess, monitor and draw up a plan.

Not something I can do from here, though Malaysia would be a great place to visit.
