Did you know – A compressed air system leak is costlier than compressed air?
On average, an estimated 50% of compressed air in an unmanaged system is used for production. The other half is wasted due to leaks, misuse and artificial demand. Consider a 40 hp compressor that runs 3,500 hours at $0.10 per kW. Not surprisingly, an increase in the leak’s diameter is matched with an increase in production costs, which can become significant over the course of a year. Understanding how to recognize and detect the first sign of a compressed air system leak is essential for minimizing the effects of leaks and preventing unnecessary costs. But with extensive experience and expertise in the industry, an Ingersoll Rand assessment engineer can significantly reduce waste in a compressed air system beyond the cost of leaks.
