Air Leaks are not a Game

Air leaks are invisible at first glance – but may cause obvious damaging effects on tools and components. Compressed air accounts for as much as 10% to 30% of industrial consumption of electricity, because of this leaks in compressed air systems can be a major source of wasted energy – on average 42% of energy can be saved by reducing air leaks. Improve your energy savings and increase production efficiency with LOCTITE.

Air Leaks are Responsible for:
  • Productivity losses due to pressure drops
    when using air tools
  • Higher maintenance costs since the system
    is running more, increasing the need for
    maintenance and repair
  • Higher equipment downtimes forced by
    longer maintenance times
  • Reduced equipment life because the entire
    system has to cycle more frequently

Air Leak Detection

In close collaboration with our distribution partner, we use an ultrasonic leak detector to identify compressed air leaks within the facility. The sooner any loss of air is detected the faster the equipment can be returned to optimal efficiency.
Documentation and Calculation

During a plant survey, our experts identify the leak location and its severity and tag the appropriate area. All information is compiled on a comprehensive report documenting leak losses and associated costs.
