On average, 25 - 30% of compressed air produced by air compressors is wasted due to leakages.
So, by not having regular air leak audits, you are likely wasting thousands of dollars on undetected leakages.
A report by the Australian Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources, states that “the cost of running compressed air systems is often many times of other energy transfer methods… and up to 90 per cent of the energy used to compress air can be wasted in the process.”
This is where we help.
PERSAS is your one-stop solution to finding and fixing air leaks by actioning regular leak audits using state-of-the-art equipment.
What is an air leak and how can we detect it?
Air leaks occur in pneumatic systems in any location where you fail to contain the stored energy of the system. These may vary from loose fittings, worn seals to damaged or worn equipment. The obvious telltale of air leaks is the hissing sound they generate.
These are more difficult to detect in a noisy environment and sometimes are almost inaudible. A less obvious symptom of air leaks is the loss of efficiency through the system and the cost of not repairing air leaks promptly.
If you suspect an air leak, the first step is to contact our qualified team to set up an on-site audit. Our technician will attend your site, fully equipped, and prepared to audit your facilities.
During the audit process, our technicians will identify, document, and report any air leaks detected. We will then prepare a comprehensive quote to correct any identified faults (an optional service).
The benefits of using air leak detection services:
An air leak detection can dramatically reduce energy consumption and will ultimately reduce operation costs. Some other key benefits include:
- Gaining more available air
- Decreasing air consumption and capacity
- Increasing and improving machine efficiency
- Prolonging the life expectancy of equipment
We recommend bi-annual audits to ensure your business’s equipment is running at optimal efficiency. So, if you have not received a recent air leak detection audit, start a conversation with us today.
Partnering with leading manufacturers to provide a professional service
Our technicians use the latest in ground-breaking technology to detect air leaks. With supporting technology, we are able to quickly and effectively detect air leaks and provide tailored solutions.
We utilise tools, such as the Fluke ii900 precision acoustic imager, to detect and locate compressed air, gas, and vacuum leaks up to 70m. It’s equipment like this that helps us lead the charge when it comes to quality customer solutions and results.
Our team of experienced personnel understand these technologies and use them to support and effectively detect air leaks in workplace facilities. We do this without any need to stop your everyday operations, in most cases.
