Relatively few people realize that for a variety of industrial manufacturing applications, from air knife drying to simple blow-off nozzles, the use of high pressure compressed air that bleeds into the atmosphere represents a significant waste of energy. This is confirmed by the DOE’s Compressed Air ChallengeÆ, calling it “an inappropriate use of compressed air.” This costly waste of energy can be eliminated by replacing the use of compressed air with lower-pressure, high-velocity air.
