iOS 4.0+

Cost: Free

Company: Quincy Compressor

Calculate the overall efficiency of a compressed air system and identify potential energy savings with this easy 5-step process. The result is the system's efficiency quotient, or EQ rating. This tool is a calculation "worksheet" that provides an estimate of overall operating costs, system efficiency level and potential savings from having an complete EQ analysis performed.
