This course will give you a thorough understanding of compressed air systems and it’s components. It teaches you all you need to know about compressed air, to feel confident working with and managing a compressed air system.

You will be able to do all the stuff that needs to be done to keep your compressors running happily for a long time, to avoid downtime and to reduce running costs.

Everything you need to know if you work with air compressors / compressed air is in this course.

This course is for YOU if:

  • You want to create a reliable compressed air system.
  • You want to save on electricity costs and maintenance.
  • You want to have a strong foundation of compressed air systems.
  • You have the responsibility for the compressed air system in your factory.
  • You’ve been working with compressed air for some time and really want to know how things work.

The problem with compressed air systems is that small (and big!) mistakes go unnoticed, until it is too late.

Lucky, most of this is easy to prevent. If you know what to look for. It all starts with more knowledge about air compressors and compressed air.

This course gives you everything you need to know to run an optimized and reliable compressed air system.

What you will learn

Here's a quick overview of what you will learn in this course. For more details see the 'detailed content' tab below.

Introduction to Compressed Air

We start at the basics - why we use compressed air, what is needed for compressed air, compressed air = stored energy and the cost of compressed air.

Compressed Air Basics

The fundamentals of compression of air and the main units: pressure, volume, capacity or air flow, free air delivery and pressure drop.

Compressed Air Quality

What makes quality compressed air, and why do we need it? Dust, water and oil in air and compressed air quality classes.

Air Compressors

Learn about air compressors, how they work, what to look out for, etc.

Compressed Air Equipment

Learn about compressed air dryers, condensate traps and drains, compressed air filters, air receivers.. and more.

Maintenance & Operations

Learn maintenance and operation procedures for all compressed air equipment

This online course is built on an advanced online ‘learning management system’ – Lessons are organized in sections and each lesson consists of both video and text.
