TCO: Considerations for Blowers & Compressors

How do you analyze the lowest Total Cost of Ownership when investing in a new blower or compressor? Initial purchase cost is only a small factor when determining the total cost. After-purchase costs, like energy, operation and maintenance, are much higher after the first few years.

Optimizing Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

Though many plants shop for equipment based on price, industry data shows that purchase costs represent only 10 percent of the total cost of ownership (TCO). This white paper shares the formula for analyzing TCO as part of purchase and design decisions, with case studies showing how five organizations use a TCO approach to yield dramatic savings.
