Compressed Air is expensive ! Do you know how to calculate the cost ?
Calculation : Compressor Power * x Running Hours x Operation Days x Tariff = Power Cost
Compressor Power : 75kW (You can add in the service factor also for better accuracy)
Running hour : 24 hours
Operation Day : 365 days
Tariff : RM 0.34 / kWH
75 x 24 x 365 x 0.34 = RM 223,380
As a rule of thumb, every 1kW will cost almost RM 3000 per year.
Great. Simple calculation. Very close to my plant consumption data.
Is there a way to calculate or estimate VSD compressor’s power consumption ?
