Shaping a Sustainable Future Today

“At Air Kraft, we share a common commitment with our Community: to engineer a greener, more sustainable future. Our dedication goes beyond mere words; it’s woven into the very fabric of our business practices and innovations.”

Part of our vision is to ensure we work alongside companies at the forefront of pioneering innovative cooling solutions while actively stewarding a more sustainable future. 

We are committed to reducing our emissions and carbon footprint over the next two years. As part of this journey, we plan to explore and integrate various energy-efficient technologies within our operations and products, aligning our efforts with broader environmental sustainability goals.

How can I reduce the energy used by my compressed air system?

Reducing energy consumption in your compressed air system can lead to significant cost savings and improved efficiency. Here are some strategies to help you achieve energy reduction:

  1. System Audit: Conduct a thorough energy audit of your compressed air system to identify areas of inefficiency, air leaks, and areas of improvement. This will provide insights into specific measures you can take to reduce energy usage.
  2. Optimize System Pressure: Operating the system at the lowest possible pressure that meets your application requirements can help minimize energy consumption. Excessive pressure leads to wasted energy, so consider adjusting pressure settings accordingly.
  3. Regular Maintenance: Implement a comprehensive maintenance program to ensure the system operates at its peak efficiency. This includes regularly inspecting and cleaning filters, checking for air leaks, and properly lubricating equipment.
  4. Fix Air Leaks: Air leaks are a common source of energy waste in compressed air systems. Regularly inspect and repair leaks in pipes, fittings, connections, and equipment to prevent unnecessary energy consumption.
  5. Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Equipment: Consider investing in energy-efficient compressors, dryers, filters, and other components. Newer technologies, such as variable speed drives and energy recovery systems, can provide significant energy savings.
  6. Optimize Air Demand: Identify and eliminate unnecessary uses of compressed air. Substitute compressed air with more efficient methods where possible, such as using electric or mechanical tools instead of pneumatic ones.
  7. Control and Monitoring: Implement controls and monitoring systems to match air supply with actual demand. This ensures the system operates efficiently and avoids energy waste during periods of low demand.
  8. Employee Awareness and Training: Educate employees about the importance of energy conservation in compressed air systems. Encourage responsible usage and provide training on best practices for minimizing waste.

By implementing these energy-saving strategies and regularly monitoring your compressed air system, you can significantly reduce energy consumption, lower operational costs, and enhance the overall efficiency of your system.

Leading the Charge on Sustainability

We focus our sustainability efforts on five key areas:

  1. Innovative Product Design:
    At Air Kraft, we prioritise sustainable innovation in our product design. Our commitment extends to collaborating exclusively with companies at the forefront of sustainable material use, enhancing the durability and repairability of our products. This approach ensures the reliability and longevity of our products and contributes to substantial energy savings, reducing operational costs and boosting efficiency for our clients.
  2. Eco-Conscious Operations: Our path to environmental stewardship is marked by our pursuit of ISO 14001 certification and continuous improvements in our logistics to achieve lower emissions. A significant 54% of our operational electricity is sourced from renewable energies. Ambitiously, we aim to fully transition to self-generated Solar PV energy by 2024, achieving 100% renewable energy usage. This bold step is a testament to our unwavering commitment to drastically reduce our environmental footprint and lead by example in sustainable practices.
  3. Carbon Reduction Commitment: With our ambitious carbon reduction targets at the forefront, we are actively investing in initiatives to offset emissions, including participation in certified schemes such as forest conservation partnerships. We are in the process of finalising a collaboration with a forest conservation partner, a step we are taking imminently as part of our dedicated efforts to combat climate change and contribute positively to the environment.
  4. Workplace Sustainability: We actively engage employees in green practices and foster a culture of sustainability through education and training programs.
  5. Responsible Business: Our supplier code of conduct reinforces sustainability standards. We donate a percentage of our profits to supporting the local Community and environmental conservation initiatives.
