The importance of fixing leaking compressed air equipment (it will save you thousands)

Do you know the true cost of compressed air leaks? 

FACT… Compressed Air is an expensive form of energy
FACT… Most compressed air systems have leaks
FACT… Unrepaired leaks are a waste of money that is directly affecting your bottom line

Compressed Air is a utility, much like electricity, water or gas. Often termed ‘The Fourth Utility’, many businesses rely on Compressed Air for their day to day operations.

But most businesses don’t realise the true cost of compressed air. As vital as it may be, compressed air is an extremely inefficient source of energy. It takes 6kW of electrical power to produce just 0.75kW of equivalent compressed air energy!

Is often a shock when our customers realise how much their leaking compressed air equipment is actually costing them

The bottom line is compressed air leaks are a HUGE waste of money.  Consider this…
  • Would you leave a tap running for no reason?
  • Would you leave a gas heater on that isn’t being used?
  • Would you leave the lights on when no one is home?

So, why leave compressed air leaks unrepaired?

Compressed Air Technology typically sees leakage rates equal to 20% – 50% of total compressed air usage, with some systems even higher! Reducing compressed air leaks, inappropriate use and artificial demand leads to lower operating costs, reduced maintenance and increased overall reliability.
