Compressed Air Leakage Programs
For larger compressed air users or those wishing to take their Leakage Programs to the next level, we offer a more comprehensive approach to ensure leaks are detected, repaired and verified in order to reap the energy saving benefits hidden in your compressed air system
- Measurement – of the non-productive demand, apportioning leakage volumes and evaluating the cost to the business
- Detection – of leaks and recording with tags, photographs and comprehensive reporting
- Grading – of leaks to prioritise repairs and identify potential OH&S issues
- Repair – of leaks or development of in-house repair programs to be undertaken by site personnel
- Verification – of the savings generated after repairs have been completed
Compressed air systems deteriorate over time
A good repair program is a continual repair program. We recommend assessing the level of leakage every 6 months, and actively encourage plant personnel to partake in repair programs, in order to ensure wastage is kept to a minimum.
