Ideal compression ratio

Hi There


What is the ideal compression ratio that we can strive to achieve? I know it is easier to say higher compression the better, but I'm trying to understand if there is any bench mark to say x% is considered to be good compression. I see the compression ratio is around 2% for this system. But client wants to know what is the % that we need to get to ... to say that we have acheived a good progress.


thanks much




  • seriously no answers... I thought this is basic question that every client may expect one time or the another.
