Atlas Copco Compressors Brings Energy-Saving Solutions to WEEC
Atlas Copco Compressors will have its industry-leading compressed air systems solutions for energy professionals on hand at the World Energy Engineering Congress, or WEEC, October 31-November 2 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
“Energy is on everyone’s mind because these costs continue to rise while managers are simultaneously being asked to operate on lean budgets,” said Paul Humphreys, vice president communications and branding for Atlas Copco Compressors. “We’re always looking for ways to incorporate and apply innovative technology to our products and services so they can deliver real, immediate savings for energy professionals.”
WEEC is a leading energy event that draws attendees and exhibitors from across the country and around the world, providing energy professionals with the latest insights on economic and market forces, new technologies, regulatory developments and industry trends.
Representatives from Atlas Copco will be available to provide details on the new Elektronikon® mobile app that allows users to monitor and control compressed air systems anywhere from smartphones or tablets. This application is available for use with Apple iOS and Android devices. Atlas Copco customers with an existing Atlas Copco compressor with an Mk5 Elektronikon® can use the app after updating their software.
Frank Moskowitz, a compressed air systems analyst with Atlas Copco Compressors, will also be presenting a seminar in WEEC conference program titled: “The 14 R’s of Compressed Air Energy Management.” In his discussion, held Thursday from 2:30-3 p.m. in Room A314 (Track K, Industrial Energy Management) of the Georgia World Congress Center, Moskowitz will identify and review 14 ways that managers can combat the inherent energy losses that are the physical result of the compressed air process.
