Compressed air is often used as a source of power.And has very wide application. Any improvement in compressed air system will lead to reduction in utility cost.Whether it is indeed a good improvement?There are no performance testing methods available for testing existing end use equipments. The effectiveness of utilization side of compressed air is usually dependent upon operator’s discretion.Maybe it is too subjective.A research from Scientific Research Publishing puts forward a test apparatus which can make up for the shortage:
A test apparatus for estimation of compressed air flow based on measurement of pressure reduction in a fixed volume cylinder in a given time is developed. The test apparatus is easy to build and simple to operate in an industrial environment. This can be used for measuring performance of any pneumatic end-use equipment and for benchmarking the performance. The test apparatus was used in a foundry for quantifying the performance of the old and new blow guns.
It seems it is a good device,whether it operates accurately and then provide an accurate assessment data？Welcome to your point of view.
