How Air and Gas Leakage Testing Helps the Overall Operation to be Cost-Effective
Leaks are not only a safety hazard in an industrial compressed air system. They can also cause your facility to waste a lot of energy and make you lose 20 to 30 percent of your compressor’s output. As a result, you could be spending more money, especially when the problem persists. You might even need to buy new compressors to replace faulty ones. Avoid these issues with air leakage testing. It can quickly identify problems so you can address them immediately.
Testing for gas and air leaks is crucial, as leaks can negatively impact productivity and reduce the efficiency of your tools and equipment. They can decrease air pressure, causing downtime when tools function inefficiently and reducing equipment longevity. A leak can also increase the demand for air power beyond what is required, making compressors work harder and cycle more frequently and depleting the lifespan of the entire system. All these can be avoided through routine inspection, maintenance, and air leakage testing.
Gas and air leakage are also the reason for downtime-related losses and increased maintenance expenses. The problem reduces the longevity of compressors while requiring expensive and frequent repairs that can get in the way of your productivity and profits.
How is it done?
Gas and air leakage testing are conducted using an NL acoustic camera. It provides immediate analysis and an informative report on any leakages in the system, so you can make better operations and maintenance decisions.
Professionals will thoroughly analyze the compressed air systems with an ultrasonic camera to identify possible air leaks and then recommend solutions to fix the problems. Their reports are technically justified to support your decision-making.
Be sure to hire a competent and qualified team for air leakage testing. Reputable service providers have in-house instruments and can produce instant reports to help your business remain compliant.
