Our team has two employees who are Certified Compressed Air System Specialists (CCASS) by the Compressed Air & Gas Institute. CAGI’s personnel certification program for compressed air system specialists provides a means of verifying the capabilities of professionals in the compressed air systems industry. We also have 5 Department of Energy AirMaster+ Specialists. This means our customers get the best service and comprehensive answers to air system improvements.
An analysis of your compressed air operation determines how well your compressed air systems are meeting your actual production needs. We match the supply to the demand side as closely as possible.
We understand that each plant is unique and believe there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution to meet everyone’s needs. We look at the system as a whole, then match the correct measure specific to the system.
A comprehensive review of your entire compressed air system can help you:
Energy costs for inefficient compressed air systems can account for up to 76% of lifetime equipment costs. Just a single 1/8” hole can cost you up to $2,000 in wasted energy costs each year! There are so many ways to save money, which is why Blackhawk Equipment is the best option for maximizing your savings and leading you through the process.
Using the SystemWizard system analysis software we can quickly evaluate the cost and efficiency of a compressed air system, compare multiple compressor alternatives and calculate investment paybacks on energy saved. This is an ideal tool for a system walk-through assessment as defined by the Compressed Air Challenge/DOE.
Our SysteMate hardware and software provide you with a real-time assessment of your company’s compressed air usage thru limited data logging. SysteMate takes power and pressure readings as inputs then calculates the true flow output, automatically generating a report which graphs system parameters, including air flow. All of this is done without any production interruptions. This assessment is typically confined to data gathering in the compressor room.
Our LogAir Auditing System combines the first data logging system specifically designed to meet the comprehensive requirements of today’s compressed air system. We personally train the auditors so they can provide the ultimate in compressed air system analysis and optimization. This assessment typically addresses supply and demand data logging. Our auditors work with you to understand your needs even going beyond the requirements defined by the Compressed Air Challenge and DOE.
