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.
