Understanding air movement and control systems is vital for any pneumatic application. When considering your next design, there are many aspects one can easily overlook. A part of this process that is often neglected is the financial return one gains from their equipment. If your application depends on using an air compressor you may want to take a second look at what this is actually costing you. Switching to a regenerative or centrifugal blower can reduce running costs as much as 95%! When you have a job to do and a deadline to meet, it is easy to jump to the first option, but with compressed air, you’re just blowing your money away.
