Compressed Air Heat Recovery Basics

12 Aug , 2016  

Daniel Stewart, ERS, for Zondits Compressed air is a notoriously expensive energy source but one that is widely used in commercial and industrial settings because of its ability to be easily stored, the high output-to-weight (and output-to-size) ratio of pneumatic actuators and tools, and the low maintenance requirements of end-use devices. As a general rule […]
