Did you know that the right filter has a big impact on the efficiency of an air compressor? A clogged or blocked filter can negatively affect compressor efficiency by as much as three percent.
You may not think that is that such a big deal. But, consider a manufacturer that runs a 200 horsepower air compressor 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 8 cents per kWh. It costs that manufacturer $110,062 a year to operate the air compressor – meaning the right filter, operating at peak performance, can save more than $3,000! Have more than one compressor? Then the savings can really pile up.
