When sizing an efficient system, our job as compressed air consultants is to ensure the compressors that are installed in the supply area deliver the exact amount of air required by the plant’s demand area.
Easy, isn’t it? We simply see how much air we consume on one side and choose the compressor based on that capacity and pressure. But the challenge is plant production demand varies throughout the day, or week, or year. That means compressors must adapt to those variations, and that’s where capacity controls come in.
