Minimize Compressed Air Leaks
Where compressed air escapes, friction
develops between the gas molecules and the pipe wall. This friction
produces a high frequency ultrasound inaudible to the human ear.
The METPOINTÂ® LKD registers the ultrasound, transforms it into an
audible sound and indicates it optically. In this respect, only
those frequencies are registered which will occur in the case of
Thus, the precise location of the leak
is easily identified even where industrial noise is present. Using
the METPOINTÂ® LKD, the detection of compressed air losses at
microcracks, worn-out flange joints, defective sealing rings or
loosened connections no longer presents a problem.
Is your company making less profit than it should? Of course you
can't know because second for second, this profit is vanishing into
thin air. Inaudibly, invisibly, unnoticed.
The reason: undetected
leaks in the compressed air pipework.
Although the chart is shown in Euro and compressor power in kW,
the trend is true regardless of the measurement units used, and as
you can see the impact on profitability is staggering. Don't forget
to take the conversion factors into consideration!
