Compressed Air

Compressed air generation requires a high energy input for the production, processing and distribution.

A leak of only 1mm example results at 8 bar and a pump power of 0.6 kW in additional cost of about 800 euros per year.

A hole of 5 mm diameter at a pump power of 13.2 kW result in about 17500 euro per year.
(Assuming 15 cents/kWh, 24 h/day and 365 days/year of operation)
