A blog for the compressed air user
Kaeser Know How is a blog for the compressed air user in Australia where you can find a wealth of knowledge as well as advice and tip and tricks that could help you plan, design and operate an optimised and efficient compressed air system.
Why compressed air efficiency and reliability matters to onshore aquaculture
Part 1: Onshore aquaculture - using a Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) - is growing at speed thanks to its environmental, sustainable and highly predictable production credentials. In this blog post we look at some of the key roles in a RAS that require compressed air and explain why an efficient and reliable supply is so critical to its overall success.
Your 8-Point Spring Clean ‘to do’ list
In this blog post we provide an 8-Point Spring Clean ‘to-do’ list, to help you get your compressed air system ready for the warmer months ahead.
The benefits of air-lift mort and sludge removal systems to aquaculturists
Fish mortalities and the accumulation of sludge are both troublesome but unavoidable by-products of aquaculture. In this blog post we look at how compressed air is being used to provide an effective, efficient and reliable solution.
Piston versus rotary screw compressors
Both piston and rotary screw compressors are commonly found in automotive aftermarket workshops and garages. But how do you decide which one is right for your business?
The benefits of aeration and oxygenation to aquaculturists
From the impacts of rising sea temperatures, to algae blooms and jellyfish blooms, in this blog post we look at how compressed air can be used to mitigate these challenges, thereby contributing to more sustainable and environmental aquaculture practices.
Better safe than sorry
In this blog post we discuss what your responsibilities are as an owner of a pressure vessel (or air receiver), and in particular what function the pressure relief valve serves and how to maintain its integrity.
Effortless, effective and ever so smart
In this blog post we discuss how today’s sophisticated compressed air master controllers require minimal effort for maximum and on-going energy efficiency gains.
In sync for increased energy efficiency
In this blog post we look at the differences as well as the pros and cons of synchronous reluctance versus asynchronous motors used in variable speed drive (VSD) compressors.
Is a VSD compressor the right choice for optimum energy efficiency?
One size does not fit all! In this blog post we consider the pros and cons of VSD compressors and discuss where they may be optimally suited.
How important is the purchase price of a compressor?
In this blog post we discuss Life Cycle Cost (LCC) as an approach to assessing the true and total cost of a compressor.
How do I select a compressed air audit provider?
In this blog post we summarise three key factors that you should consider when selecting a compressed air audit provider.
Why do I need to service my compressed air filters?
In this blog post we look a little closer into why compressed air filtration is required and explain some key reasons why it’s important to maintain the integrity of your compressed air filters.
