Compressed air leak Audit

The predominant source of energy waste in compressed air system is compressed air leak which aggregates to 25%-35% of the total compressed air generated. Leaks exists in joints, flanges, welds upto end use instrumentations.

A well-maintained compressed air system (facility engaged in regular leak audit with post repairs) will have leaks less than 5-10%. But in a poorly managed facility, the leaks account upto 35%.

80% of the leak spots in the system is inaudible. Conversely the largest leak repairs yields huge reduction in compressed air leakage quantity.

We put forward Ultrasonic leak detection services to identify leaks in the system. Our compressed air leak detection services has expands from small manufacturing facilities, garments to cement plants.

Gas leak detection includes gases like :

  • Argon
  • Hydrogen
  • Oxygen
  • Nitrogen


  1. Identification of exact location of leaks in the system
  2. Tagging the point of leaks
  3. Detailed Report providing insights:
  •    Section wise leakage quantity and leak points
  •    Quantity, cost, image associated for each leak.
  •    Energy reduction post repairs.

Note: Our Leak Detection extends in identifying leaks in oxygen, argon and nitrogen lines as well.
