UGP workshop highlights compressed air efficiency

Western’s Upper Great Plains regional office is teaming up with Missouri River Energy Services Redirecting to a non-government site to present a workshop on managing compressed air systems.

The one-day workshop is scheduled for three different dates and locations for participants’ convenience:

  • Nov. 13 in Sioux Center, Iowa
  • Nov. 14 in Watertown, S.D.
  • Nov. 15 in Moorhead, Minn.

Sometimes called the “fourth utility” in manufacturing, compressed air offers several opportunities for significant energy savings, lower operating costs and a minimized impact on the environment through a smaller carbon footprint. Presentations will focus on:

  • Measuring, tracking and controlling system operating costs
  • Choosing the right system for your needs
  • Reducing demand
  • Maximizing efficiency in operation

Hank van Ormer of Air Power USA Redirecting to a non-government site will present the workshop.  Van Ormer is one of the country’s leading experts in compressed air systems and brings over 30 years of experience to the workshop.

Plant and energy engineers, plant operators and maintenance personnel and building owners and managers should register now to attend this unique workshop and begin lowering their compressed air costs. The registration fee is $109 per person, which includes continental breakfast, lunch, breaks, the workshop, and a comprehensive compressed air manual.
