More on Compressed Air Leaks…

Thanks to an informative business meeting earlier this week in Barrie, ON; LCA will be offering Ultrasonic Leak detection services to our customers. Thanks to Iain, Biren and Steven for the eye opening information and showing me just HOW much money we can potentially save our customers.  In some of their recent case studies they were able to shut off 2 of 3 compressors for their customers!  Absolutely mind blowing!! Iain posted recently on Linkedin and I will share here on our blog: I’m very frank in my discussions with customers.  I have little understanding (and tolerance) for accepting leaks as a cost of doing business.

Every 8 cfm to 12 cfm leak can cost you $800 to $1,200 per year. Van Ormer suggests setting up a short-term leak inspection program so that every sector of the plant is inspected once each quarter to identify and repair leaks. “Inspections should be conducted with a high-quality ultrasonic… More
