The Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI), a leading source of manufacturer and product-neutral support for compressed air professionals for more than 90 years, has launched www.cagi.org to provide continually updated content and coverage of timely topics relevant to today’s workforce.
A CAGI subcommittee, comprised of individuals representing the major compressed air and gas manufacturers, launched the site as a means to provide credible, unbiased, non-commercial information for a broad industry audience that ranges from plant engineers to students. The site includes energy efficiency tips, trending topics and educational materials, maintenance advice, application and usage tips, and a member resource directory.
“With so much noise coming from a variety of sources, we felt it was critical to establish a credible, non-commercial resource for compressed air professionals of all levels of expertise and training,” said Mike Stone, chairman of the CAGI promotional subcommittee. “This new website does exactly that, cutting through the clatter and providing a comprehensive resource that allows compressed air professionals to educate themselves and make unbiased decisions about how to optimize their system so that it efficiently meets their needs.”
The website features three distinctive features to help compressed air professionals: SmartSite, selection guides and CAGI data sheets.
SmartSite, established in 2005, is a 24/7 online learning center that provides training, resources and technical information for individuals interested in learning about the fundamentals of compressed air.
By accessing the CAGI selection guides, consumers can input data collected from their current compressed air systems and access non-branded equipment selection guides to gain a better understanding of what products are best suited for their system.
The CAGI data sheets, one of the more popular CAGI resources, define operational and performance information used during the specification and application decision-making process. The information contained in the manufacturer’s data sheets is verified by independent third-party testing.
