Air Leak Detection Audit

Air Leak Detection Audit


Are you ready to maximize your air and energy consumption?

In a study performed by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) it's estimated that air compressors use as much as 10% of all electricity generated in the United States. Further, the DOE calculates that nearly 50% of this energy is wasted. Compressed air leaks account for 25%-30% of this waste.

Due to the known energy loss, industrial companies are using Air Leak Detection Audits to reduce waste and energy consumption. This savings varies at each facility, but the results across the board have been staggering. Companies are achieving up to 42% reduction in annual energy cost.

Audit Process:

  • The first step is setting up an on-site survey with SMCs Fluid Power division. An expert will arrive at your plant fully equipped and prepared to audit your facilities
  • During the audit process SMC experts will identify, tag and report all air leaks
