The term “Compressed Air Audit” is loosely used to name a wide variety of studies, from automated equipment recommendations from equipment manufacturers to purely theoretical engineering analyses. A valid compressed air audit should be carried out by independent auditors and must include an in-depth analysis of the compressed air demand and supply and consider the main distribution piping as well. It needs to be based on reliable data and expert analysis. The deliverables include the collected data, a system evaluation, opportunities for improvement, a blueprint for a proposed optimized system, comparative financial projections, and a priced action plan to implement it.
