Compressed Air Leak Detection


Compressed Air Leaks

Compressed Air Leak Detection

In a single month, a ¼” leak in your compressed air system will result in a loss of 3 million cubic feet of air in a 100 PSIG system. This amounts to 107,000 kWh energy loss at power levels of 18 kW/100 cfm (a $10,700 value at $0.10 per kW.) The higher your system’s pressure, the more expensive the loss!

Compressed air system efficiency can be significantly compromised by air leaks. On average, air leaks are responsible for 20-30% loss in total air in most manufacturing plants. In cases where no compressed air system maintenance is performed and leaks go undetected, the loss can exceed 50%.
