The mission of CAGI (Compressed Air and Gas Institute) is to be the united voice of the compressed air industry, serving as the unbiased authority on technical, educational, promotional, and other matters that affect the industry. IMPO recently spoke with Rick Stasyshan, CAGI’s Technical Consultant, about ways the organization can help manufacturers become safer and more efficient users of this resource.
Q: How has the CAGI SmartSite been able to address compressed air-related training gaps facing some manufacturers?
A: The CAGI SmartSite was a collaborative effort of our member companies that contributed to provide an on-line compressed air training tool. The SmartSite is targeted to multiple audiences that includes but is not limited to compressed air users, distributor support teams, and the member company employees. The SmartSite is an introduction to the compressed air markets, applications, and understanding how the basic elements of a compressed air system work together. It is a great starting tool to understand compressed air, industry’s 4th utility.
