Air compressor leaks are very common in all applications, but can be very costly and difficult to find. On average, 20-30% of the compressed air used in a manufacturing plant is wasted as leaked air. Finding and fixing these leaks can save your business thousands of wasted dollars a year.
The most common areas you will typically find a leak in your system are:
External unloader valves
Most leaks can be resolved by tightening fittings, couplers or valves. Hoses may need to be replaced if a small hole has punctured the hose or pipe. A small 1/4'' hole in your hose lines can result in almost $5,000 a year in wasted energy if you are running constantly at 100 psi. A 3/8'' hole can result in over $10,000 a year.
