Air leaks are a concern for anyone operating a compressed air system. The average plant will have air leaks that waste up to 30% of the total air capacity.
Leaks will cause compressors to run at full load for longer periods of time. The compressors will not only use more energy, but may also need additional maintenance due to the increased loads.
Leaks can give the false impression that additional compressors are required to meet the demand for compressed air.
