Operational efficiency is closely linked to saving energy and emissions throughout the production process. Such savings can be found in optimizing compressed air systems. Sika sites are considering compressed air systems as a whole and are constantly keeping them optimized and maintained.

Sika's energy saving program encompasses the optimizatoion of compressed air

Saving energy in compressed air systems

Compressed air systems are important in many manufacturing environments because they deliver force without the risk of igniting a fire. However, there is the danger that well over 60-70% of the electricity powering the system ends up as waste heat. Considering the amount of piping and tanks, for Sika it’s important that leaks are avoided, and controls and maintenance is optimized.
