FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Compressed air is one of the three highest cost utilities in use at your plant. It is also one of the least maintained in terms of system leaks. Leaks are expensive and wasteful, but most often ignored.

Finding and fixing leaks is an easy way to reduce energy costs but finding them is not easy because of background noise.

  1. Why we don’t find and fix air leaks?
    Leaks are often considered an unavoidable cost of business. Many of us simply don’t realize the high cost of compressed air leaks.
  2. Air leaks cost you real money
    Compressed air leaks are one of the leading expenses in the industrial world to this day. Leaks are a source of wasted energy, but they also contribute to other operating losses.
  3. How much air is being wasted?
    Air leaks are wasted energy. An industrial compressed air system loses up to 40% of its compressor’s output to leaks if left unchecked.
  4. The best way to find leaks
    SDT’s ultrasound technology provides you with the ability to check vast areas for air leaks quickly and effectively. The SDT270 hears high frequency sounds created by leaks, while ignoring low frequency plant noise.
  5. How to fix compressed air leaks
    Finding the leaks presents a solution to the problem. But only fixing the leaks nets cost and energy savings. Without a follow-up to ensure found leaks were actually fixed, leak detection is just another expense.
  6. Air leak prevention program
    Implementing an Air Leak Prevention Program into your facility is essential for energy and cost savings. Proactive leak detection and good organization will reduce leaks to 10% or less of system demand.
