Air leaks are easily found, tagged and fixed with regularly performed leak surveys.
Air leaks happen at the joints, elbows, and end fittings of the piping. The process is simple, scan the piping and end fittings with an ultrasonic leak detector in a sweeping motion. Turbulence created by a leak is localized to the leak point. When you discover a spike in dB’s, inspect the area until you find where the dB’s peak. That is your leak point. As you identify leaks, tag them for repair when your maintenance schedule allows it.
Maintaining a regular leak survey schedule is crucial to the health of your factory, reducing energy costs and the effectiveness of your compressed air system.
