For some companies it is the lack of verification that is the biggest obstacle in starting a leakage detection program. However the two key factors for determining progress, air consumption and pressure are relatively easy to measure, before and after the survey. The results can then be converted into kWh and into monetary terms. On the diagrams below you have a verified before- after scenario for a client that had been advised that they need to invest in more compressor capacity. They decided to invest in a leakage detection and remedial program to verify not only what size compressor they would need but also if leakage detection could reduce consumption.
The average consumption in this case was reduced by more than 50%. Instead of five compressors running they now require only three. In addition to energy savings and reduced service costs their need for more compressor capacity was obviously eliminated.
LeekSeek can provide clients with monitoring and third party compressor audits to have results verified and quantified. A compressor audit is also beneficial from other aspects. It will often reveal other areas of potential and creates a better understanding of the system that many times is vital for uninterrupted production.
