Minimize Compressed Air Leaks

Leaks are a significant source of wasted energy in a compressed air system, often wasting
as much as 20-30% of the compressor’s output. Compressed air leaks can also contribute
to problems with system operations, including:
• Fluctuating system pressure, which can cause air tools and other air-operated
equipment to function less efficiently, possibly affecting production
• Excess compressor capacity, resulting in higher than necessary costs
• Decreased service life and increased maintenance of supply equipment (including the
compressor package) due to unnecessary cycling and increased run time.
