Case Study about optimizing compressed air station to reduce idle times and increase energy efficiency better responding to variable peak loads. Helmut Rembert, Senior Facilities Engineer at the John Deere factory in Mannheim: “Once the turbo compressors are switched off, you have to wait at least twenty minutes for them to start up again. If you want flexibility, you have to run them idle from time to time. But that is not energy-efficient.
