Though certain variables (e.g. cost of electricity supplied to your facility, size of leak, etc.) will determine the costs associated with an under performing system, one thing we've found to be consistent: A constantly cycling or running compressor is probably costing you more money than you realize.
We recently completed an evaluation for a customer's compressed gas system. The customer's system is online approximately 8,760 hrs/year, and the facility pays $0.10/kWh for electricity. Given these variables, our findings were thus: Keep in mind the data displayed here does not take into account maintenance costs as a part of total savings.
What could your facility do with an extra $98k in your annual budget?
A single leak can cost $391/year, and a leak registering at 2.3 CFM isn't "big" as far as leaks go, but it's easy to see how quickly the costs can add up - how many leaks are in your facility?
So what does Compressed Gas Leak Detection Service from Swagelok look like?What to Expect
- A visual inspection of compressed gas systems.
- Source and cost of leaks through the use of ultrasonic leak detectors and Snoop®.
- A detailed report including leak location and size allowing personnel to set a maintenance schedule.
- A prioritized list of recommendations that help you eliminate leakage and conserve valuable resources.
