Ultrasound leak detection covers a wide range of leaks: pressure or vacuum and any gas. Leaks of compressed air, gases or vacuum all create turbulent flows which can be detected with an Ultrasonic Leak Detector as the fluid (liquid or gas) moves from the high-pressure side to the low-pressure side of a leak. COMPRESSED AIR COSTS MONEY….. LEAKS ARE A WASTE OF MONEY. By being able to detect sounds that the human ear would not otherwise be able to hear and locating their source, you can identify places where your plant is quite literally leaking money. The Air Energy Ultrasonic digital leak detector has basic functions and also some powerful features such as frequency tuning and onboard data logging. Air Energy’s Ultrasonic Leak Detector is designed for use in conditions that require ‘intrinsically safe’ equipment. A typical survey:
By fixing leaks, you cut down on your energy expenditures, thus lowering your electricity bill and driving up the bottom line. Fortunately, through ultrasonic compressed air leak detection, you can identify opportunities to reduce both carbon emissions and energy usage. Eliminating waste has become a priority for both industry professionals and national governments, as the private sector looks for new ways to increase revenues, while countries around the world are looking to cut back on carbon emissions. By fixing and controlling compressed air leaks, we can address both of these concerns.
Of the energy that goes into an air compressor, on average only 18 percent comes out as useable energy. This means that less than 20 percent of the energy used for compressed air is actually workable. This is why small leaks can have such a big impact on costs. With the use of ultrasonic leak detection we can locate compressed air leaks and enhance efficiency. Air Energy trained staff can conduct an ultrasonic leak audit and provide a report detailing where the leaks are occurring and identify the cost savings.
