Did you know up to 40% of your generated compressed air is being lost due to leaks? Air leakage is the single largest waste of compressed air. Therefore, you will be using more energy than required and increasing the running hours which means you’ll need more frequent air compressor servicing.
Average annual compressor leak costs:
1.5mm hole – £2,000
4.0mm hole – £14,000
6.0mm hole – £30,000
The above costs are calculated based on electricity figures of £0.34p/kWh3. With energy costs constantly increasing, savings are now likely to be significantly higher. 360° Air offer a compressed air leak detection service to locate leaks, calculate leakage costs, calculate repair costs and provide a detailed report for corrective actions.
Our 360° air leak audit service can be integrated into your ongoing maintenance plan to ensure that your system is working at optimum performance and efficiency all year round.
