Compressed air system leaks are a significant source of wasted energy that can cost your business thousands of dollars a year. In fact, the Department of Energy estimates that, on average, as much as 20 to 30 percent of a compressor's output is wasted on leaks. These leaks can also lead to system problems, including fluctuating system pressure, excess compressor capacity, and decreased service life.
The Leak Survey and Repair Program provides cash incentives to help businesses make their compressed air systems more efficient through leak analysis and repair. Proactive leak detection and repair can reduce leaks by 50 to 75 percent (or more) and boost your bottom line.
