The Compressed Air Systems Optimisation (CASO) is a two-day course that provides candidates with sufficient comprehension and technical capacity to optimise a compressed air system within their organisation, as well as the required knowledge to undergo UNIDO expert level training and coaching.

CASO training exposes candidates to all common components of a compressed air system, and how to perform an associated assessment.  Basic exercises, case studies, and practical examples are discussed in the class.  The syllabus is for end-users, and is a pre-requirement for organisations and persons who wish to undergo in-depth training in compressed air systems. In-depth expert level training is done at an organisation’s facility where candidates are equpped with the knowledge, skills and tools needed to support the adoption and implementation of CASO in industry. Trainers provide onsite technical training, assistance, and coaching onsite of facility personnel on CASO project development and implementation.

  • Section 1: Supply side

This includes the definitions of compressed air (CA), air properties, CA efficiency and costs, compressors and their applications, rotary screw compressors, dynamic centrifugal compressors, rotary vane compressors and heat recovery.

  • Section 2: Treatment & Distribution

Condensate treatment, drying, storage, filtration, piping and installation conditions.

  • Section 3: System assessment

System analysis, pressure profiles, demand profiles, baselining energy consumption, case studies and exercises section.

  • Section 4: Demand side

Leakages, artificial demand, inappropriate uses, maintenance, and a power equation example.

On completion of the CASO two day course candidates will be able to:

  • Initiate the development and implementation of CASO measures
  • Apply knowledge to new and existing systems
  • Identify potential optimisation opportunities
  • Determine how to achieve cost savings and energy efficiency through the appropriate application of CASO
  • Assessing CASO opportunities

Technicians, electricians, plant operators, engineers that work in operations where compressed air is utilised.

Energy engineers, CEMs, CEAs, CMVPs who require more in-depth training on CASO and need to earn renewal credits.

The CASO training is at a level where candidates need to have an understanding of basic engineering concepts, or underwent a minimum of Fundamentals to Energy Management Training (FEMT).
