Compressed air systems typically lose over 25%- 40% of their supply through leaks. Leaks are not only wasted energy, they are also significantly expensive and contribute to increased CO2 emissions.
In fact, “Compressed Air Challenge” identifies that 42% of the energy savings potential in compressed air systems is from leak detection and repairs which provides a return on investment in less than 2 months.
Whatever sector you are from, you use compressed air & as an engineering lead, one of the best actions you can take is, immediately catch this "low hanging fruit" by : -
1. Hiring a consultant to identify leaks by High Frequency Ultrasonic Leak Survey, literally all leaks, from your compressor room till the end use. You will come to know how many leak you have, CFM of each leak, cost of each leak to the plant & total leak cost for the plant.
2. Implement the findings or hire a service provider to help you with it.
Take away = immediate cost reduction, less hours of compressor operation & environmental benefits.
And yes it works in the same way for Gasses Like Carbon Dioxide. Nitrogen etc as well.
