Compressed Air Recycling


I am adding a page on compressed air recycling, not because I am an expert or even am involved with this field, but because when I consider the high cost of power used to generate compressed air, it seems axiomatic that recycling exhaust compressed air makes sense.

There are obvious issues with harnessing valve exhaust air to try to reclaim it, not the least of which is if you back pressure the exhaust compressed air, which you might need to do to collect it, what effect will that have on the operation of the valve or air-driven device?

Yet, compressed air recycling should be focused on, and I offer this page to interested persons as a focal point for those wishing to use recycled compressed air, and those that have technology to do so.

For the financial benefit of our fellow compressed air users and the environment in which we all live, please post your questions, comments and available technology for compressed air recycling below.
