Four good reasons to avoid leakages

Why you should treat compressed air leaks like a dripping tap

How To Avoid Air Leaks Guide


Compressed air is expensive

Air is "free" but the production of compressed air is not. It requires expensive electrical energy. The production of 1 m3 of compressed air costs on average 1.5 to 3 cents (assuming electricity price: 0.10 €/kWh).


And there it goes…

Up to 30% of this expensively produced compressed air is lost due to leaks – always when the compressor is running!


Leakages Cost

Even leaks with a diameter of just 3 mm will cost around 2,800 € per year (8,000 operating hours, 6 bar, 0.10 €/kWh).


CO2 emissions

The energy-intensive generation of compressed air adversely affects the CO2 balance, even if the generated compressed air escapes unused.

Leakages Cost Money

Energy savings

On average, up to 30% of compressed air generated is lost through leakages.

Leakage Management

Leakage management – your advantages:

Reduce compressed air consumption by up to 30%

  • Quickly reduce compressed air costs and energy consumption
  • Reduce operating costs
  • Optimal use of the compressor power
  • Extend component life
  • High system availability
  • Secure processes
  • Energy-efficient and environmentally conscious plant operation
