CPD: 14
Closing Date Before: 23-Oct-2022 (Subject to change based on availability of seat)
Organised By Technical Division - Mechanical Engineering (METD)


The objectives of this course is to introduce and provide understanding of compressed air system; the various air compressors, air storage system, air treatment system, as well as the efficient design consideration of the compressed air system. This course will focus on the system optimization approach on the compressed air system taking into consideration the end use requirement, distribution system and compressed air station supply side management. The system optimization approach provides an overall energy saving besides ensuring the compressed air system performance and reliability. Efficient and reliable compressed air system reduces energy consumption and downtime besides ensuring smooth production and operation in the industrial plants.
In summary, this course will provide the participants with experiences in compressed air system design, selection of air compressor, optimizing compressed air system to improve efficiency and best practices in maintenance and operation to achieve high system reliability. At the end of the course, we hope plant engineers and facility users will be able to optimize the existing compressed air system and reduce the energy consumption hence the cost of energy.
