It can be nearly silent, making it a challenge to detect. It can quietly be stealing your profits and wasting energy. When it comes to the financial security of your company, it may not even be on your radar, yet it can reduce the competitiveness of your company, depleting resources. You may even be walking right past it, stepping over it or simply have gotten used to it. It is the issue of leaking compressed air, and the larger your company and the more important compressed air and other gasses are to the operation of your organization, the more it may be costing you.
Part of the problem is we tend to view compressed air as a commodity. It is something we use and air, after all, is free right? Not exactly. Leaking compressed air is like leaving a window open in the winter. It is like having your air conditioning on high when you are on vacation. It is like driving with 1,000 lbs of bricks in the bed of your truck. You are using energy you are paying for to produce this wasted compressed air. It is not being put to proper use. In fact, it is estimated that about 30% of all compressed air produced is wasted. Imagine if you were wasting 30% of your other resources?
Not only are these leaks wasting the energy to produce compressed air, but it is also putting needless strain on equipment, creating potentially higher maintenance and equipment replacement costs. What may seem to be a small issue can cost a company into the hundreds, thousands, and even tens of thousands of dollars monthly in wasted energy and needless maintenance costs. Annualized, the waste in energy and financial resources can be staggering. The good news is that this problem can be addressed, and technology makes it simpler and more effective and efficient than ever. You can take steps to monitor, map and make compressed air loss repairs and put a stop to leaking profits today.
