Case Study – 5 month payback from repairing compressed air leaks

By repairing leaks in their compressed air system, our client - a large regional NSW manufacturer - achieved the following results: 

  • Reduction in total Recoverable Compression Capacity: 363 CFM*
  • Reduction in total annual energy: 837,489 kWh
  • Total savings: $69,489.

  
This reduced their leak loss rate from 25.8% to 20.1% - still a fair way from best operating practice (7% to 10% of peak air demand), but a very good start.

Our client repeated the leak detection and repair process the following year, bringing their Compression Capacity down to 184 CFM - 10.2% of peak air demand - saving a further $92,455 off their electricity bill. (Data collection methods for this project included baseline and verification data logging by our compressed air engineers.)
