  • Compressed Air System Leaks: The Cost, Common Culprits, Detection and Repair
    Like a furnace that heats a home that's well insulated, a compressed air system with a minimum amount of leaks is more energy efficient and more effective. Leak reduction is one of the most cost-effective steps a plant can take to immediately reduce energy costs and improve profitability. Leak
  • Pulling Money Out of Thin Air
    a compressed-air system is in fixing air leaks. Much has been written about air leaks. However, there are new audit and detection methods worth revisiting. It is not unusual for a well-maintained plant to have a leak rate of around 20% of total compressed air production. A single 1/16-in. leak can
  • How Ultrasound Technology Was Used To Locate Low Level Leaks In Heat Exchangers
    Ultrasonic leak detection has been used for a variety of applications ranging from energy reduction by locating compressed air leaks to quality assurance inspections such as locating wind noise and water leaks in automobiles. The secret to success is to understand the nature of what type of leak
  • Medical Device Link .
    , fluids could be accidentally delivered to the wrong location, or the wrong fluids could be extracted, inciting dangerous consequences. The most common methods of leak detection include pressurized air and tracer gas systems, and there is increasing focus on using hydrogen as a tracer gas. Hydrogen
  • Monitoring Pneumatics Makes All the Difference
    pneumatic systems until they fail, typically because it is difficult to isolate the process or component contributing to higher air consumption. To pinpoint leaks and losses, system air-consumption monitoring should be an ongoing effort. A leak-detection program is one option that usually involves
  • Methods for Checking/Auditing Pipe Flanges, Pressurized Connections and Other Critical Fastened Joints
    The Clean Air Act requires refineries to develop and implement a Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR) program to control fugitive emissions. Fugitive emissions occur from valves, pumps, compressors, pressure relief valves, flanges, connectors and other piping components. A study conducted
