Save energy, reduce costs and improve system reliability with a comprehensive air audit by Blackhawk Equipment

What is an Air Audit?

What is an Air Audit Service ProviderAn 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.










What are the Benefits?

A comprehensive review of your entire compressed air system can help you:

  • Decrease your system operating costs
  • Discover the source of the problem rather than alleviating the symptoms
  • Improve air quality
  • Identify opportunities for improvements
  • Provide a factual basis for evaluating opportunities, calculating savings, sizing components, verifying retrofit results and performance contracting
  • Enhance productivity by reducing scheduled downtime and scrap rates

Levels of Assessment:

Walk-Through Evaluation 

(1/2-2 Days)

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.


System Assessment

(2-5 Days)

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.


System Audit 

(3-10 Days)

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.
