Compressor Energy Services, Inc. (CES) specializes in maximizing the efficiency and cost effectiveness of compressed air systems in large manufacturing facilities. With over 25 years in the compressed air systems industry, the CES team of engineering, systems and technology specialists’ measure, analyze and report on compressed air system performance and provide recommendations for improvements.
CES is hired directly by the Utility Companies to perform Audits, Measurement & Verification (M&V) and Retro Commissioning (RCx) for its customers. CES is an approved vendor with all major New England utility companies. CES has conducted over 500 assessments and secured over $3 Million in utility incentives.
Compressed air, often called the fourth utility (with water, electricity and gas), is one of the most expensive utilities used in industry and the one utility generated in-house. No other utility provides this level of control over system efficiency and cost.
We have been conducting compressed air system audits world-wide since 2002 and have assisted companies such as Anheuser-Busch, Ben & Jerry’s, Boston Beer Company, Cabot Cheese, Edwards Lifesciences, Energizer, Ethan Allen Furniture, General Dynamics, General Electric, Gillette, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Johnson & Johnson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Millipore, New Balance, Osram Sylvania, Smiths Medical, Sturm Ruger, Teradyne, Tyson, Unilever and Velcro.
We install power, flow and pressure meters to establish a baseline of the electrical usage associated with operating the compressed air system. We quantify the energy savings opportunities by analyzing a large data set, assessing the system structure and operation, identifying and documenting leaks, compare performance to system specifications and provide recommendations for reducing compressed air usage.
The turnkey implementations of recommended energy efficiency measures identified in our reports typically have a Simple Payback of less than eighteen months. A metering system is left in place to verify savings. Data is shared with utility companies allowing them to conduct an independent analysis. We stand behind savings projections and back our findings by offering pricing guarantees that assure that return on investment is achieved.
