Heat recovery can drastically reduce energy costs associated with running air compressors. Amazingly, almost 100% of the electrical energy input to a compressor is turned into heat. Approximately 2% of this energy radiates away from the compressor package into the ambient surroundings and 2% remains in the compressed air.
This means that with the installation of heat recovery systems from Kaeser up to 96% of the energy dedicated to compressed air production can be recovered and reused. Therefore, in view of continuously soaring energy prices and concerns regarding the environment, the potential benefits and savings are enormous.
