How to Conduct a Compressed Air Leak Survey

Compressed air leaks are very detrimental to business operations. Aside from decreasing productivity levels, leakages are very costly to the company because they hike electricity costs. This is why it’s important to conduct compressed air leak surveys. This is how you identify the points of leakage and make the necessary repairs.

We’ll go through the basic steps conducted during a compressed air survey.

Steps to Conducting a Compressed Air Leak Survey

There are different methods you can adopt to conduct a compressed air leak survey. Some professional plant operators measure the leak based on the level of decibels the leak is producing. Others make use of callipers to measure the diameter of the leak opening to determine the amount of air lost.

Action Plan

Now that you’ve conducted the survey, it’s time to devise an action plan to rectify the issue. Depending on the size of the leak, you must look for a plant operator to immediately fix the leak. For an experienced operator, this will only take a few minutes. If the leak is big the system may need new parts installed.

The last step is to compile a report that clearly states the location and description of the leak—including any repairs or replacements done.
