The Kaeser Half Day Conference 2016

Our partners at Kaeser are coming to Pittsburgh to host a half-day conference at Heinz Field designed to educate and network manufacturing and engineering professionals in compressed air best practices. Hosting will be two highly experienced engineers: Wayne Perry is Kaeser’s Senior Technical Director and Werner Rauer is The Product Manager for Kaeser’s Screw Compressors. Werner is also the author of many of the articles at, an excellent resource for compressed air advice.

The Conference will host two seperate learning tracks for attendees:

Elegant and Efficient: Compressed Air System Design In this track, Werner Rauer takes the first hour to walk through the ideal design – what you need and why. In the second hour, he acknowledges that the opportunity to put together a system from scratch, where even the size and location of the compressor room are in an engineers’ control, does not come along very often. We put together compressed air systems in less than ideal conditions in the real world. So the issue we need to consider is how we move in the direction of the ideal in actual situations we face.

Leaking Money: Optimizing Compressed Air Systems for Sustainable ProfitabilityWayne argues for a paradigm shift in the way we think about compressed air systems. Typically, they are conceived in terms of machinery meant to deliver a particular result on the demand side of the system. This, he believes, is precisely the problem. Instead, we need to think of a compressed air system as a utility, not unlike electricity. And when we do, there is demonstrable evidence that we will not only decrease our carbon footprint, but increase our bottom line.
