Compressed air is widely considered the fourth utility. Used in more than 70% of manufacturing processes, your compressed air system represents a huge opportunity for energy savings¹. In fact, it is estimated poorly designed and maintained compressed air systems in the United States cost up to $3.2 billion in wasted energy costs each year².
Electricity represents more than 75% of the total costs of an industrial air compressor over its lifecycle³.
Increasing compressed air system efficiency is critical to help keep your operating costs low.
Sullair offers efficient capacity control options to help you only compress the air you need and none you don’t.
Spiral valve technology uses a variable capacity air end equipped with bypass ports along the length of the air end casting. Compression volume is varied to suit air demand by progressively opening or closing these bypass ports by means of a rotating spiral valve.
Closed bypass ports mean 100% of air capacity is being compressed
As the bypass ports open, less air is compressed
Sullair and our global network of Authorized Distributors can perform full system audits. These audits can help identify key performance parameters such as actual delivery to production, system reliability and quality of compressed air (ISO classes).
Common areas audits identify for efficiency improvement include misuses of air, inefficient system setups and machines not properly sized for operations.
Compressed air generates heat and you can reuse it for other functions in your operation such as make-up air or to heat your facility. This can result in significant energy savings.
Many Sullair air compressors are equipped with AirLinx® Remote Monitoring. This allows you to easily monitor your compressor from any connected device.
Also, Sullair Authorized Distributors are true compressor experts. They are ready to provide quick and easy service and maintenance which helps keep your compressed air system operating at optimum efficiency.

Producing more compressed air than you need means you’re wasting money. Compressors are frequently one of the biggest users of electricity in an industrial setting. But while producing compressed air isn’t free, there are ways to help balance the compressed air your operation demands with the supply available.
