Compressed Air Leak Detection Survey

Compressed air is probably the most expensive ‘energy’ source on your site. Of the total energy supplied to a compressor, as little as 8-10 per cent may be converted into useful energy at the point of use. To minimise inefficiencies, it is recommended to check for leaks regularly and repair them.


The average leak rate in the UK is estimated to be between 20% and 50%. This represents a significant cost to you company as well unnecessary carbon emissions.

The benefits of fixing leaks are obvious, not only in cost savings but also in helping to reduce your carbon footprint.

Ultra-sonic leak detection

This can be undertaken at any time as it does not need the production process to be stopped. The main advantage of this method is that it is possible to quantify each leak and decide upon the priority of the repair as the scales on the instrument allow the size of the leak to be determined and hence its costs can be calculated.


The service which we offer will be carried out with no disruption to production.

We will compile a full report detailing;

  • identification of all leaks
  • remedial actions required
  • individual and total potential savings
  • energy saving recommendations
