Event Details

In this workshop, you will learn the essentials of the systems approach, including compressed air system design from compressor to end use, piping and fittings, materials, codes and standards.

Learn how to optimize the system for performance, to create and maintain balance between system supply and end user demand. And learn to eliminate waste lost due to leakage and inappropriate use of compressed air. You will also gain an understanding of the maintenance issues that apply; the cost of air leakage, the methods of detecting and correcting system faults to ensure smooth operation.
