Ultrasonic Leak Detection Benefits

With energy costs skyrocketing the importance of implementing a leak detection and repair program for your compressed-air system becomes readily apparent. Especially once you consider that compressed air on average is about 10% of your electricity bill.  Add a leak or several air leaks and your electricity bill can go through the ceiling.

Compressed air leakage is the major contributor to energy loss in compressed air systems. A typical plant may lose up to 30% of its compressed air through poorly maintained pipe joints, fittings, couplings, and equipment.

Since air leaks often get progressively worse over time, it is entirely possible that you have not correlated your rising electricity bill to a compressed air leak(s).  In fact, you might have blamed your service provider erroneously.

While actively listening for air leaks is your first line of defense, this method has a small degree of effectiveness. The human ear has limitations, especially in a noisy environment. It is generally accepted that leaks up to 6 scfm can go undetected by the human ear.

Our technicians use state-of-the-art ultrasonic leak detectors.  These detectors transform leak sounds so that leaks that were previously undetectable are clearly audible. Once we find the leaks, we will record, tag, and quantify them for you.

Where to do we typically find leaks?

  • Aging pipework (corroded joints and take off points)
  • Flange connectors (gaskets and pipe dope that need replacing)
  • Fittings (worked loose)
  • Manifolds
  • Flexible hoses (cuts and splits due to wear and tear)
  • Couplings (damaged seals)
  • Drain valves
  • Pneumatic components including tools, valves, and actuators.

If we find any leaks during our survey, we recommend that you repair them quickly.  The cost of letting us repair the leak(s) is almost always far less expensive than allowing the leak to continue.  Let our factory trained installation and service technicians do a professional job and save you money.

Never worry about leaks.  Air Centers of Florida has the best installation and piping team in the industry.

ACF Service Programs for Rotary Air Compressors

With the responsibilities of keeping employees working, productions lines moving, and costs down, you don’t need the additional worries of maintaining your compressed air equipment.

At Air Centers of Florida, we understand compressed air equipment is not just a purchase – it’s a long term investment. A Preventative Maintenance program will save you thousands of dollars each year in energy costs as well as protect your compressor from premature break downs.

Dirt build-up on inlet filters, oil filters and separator elements will cause excessive pressure drops and make a compressor operate outside of its design parameters. This dirt build-up changes compression ratios and leads to:

  • Excess power consumption
  • Elevated operating temperatures
  • Overloading of downstream components
  • Unnecessary compressor wear & tear

The typical power cost to continuously run a compressor for one year is more than the original purchase price of the compressor itself. Performing Planned Preventive Maintenance can potentially reduce power consumption, translating into significant dollar savings.

Additionally, our expertly trained Certified Technicians can identify inefficient components and provide solutions that often have an immediate payback via Reliability and power cost savings. Often we will find solutions that have an energy savings potential of 10 to 30 percent.
