Compressed air system audits and surveys

Air leakage is the single largest waste of compressed air. A 3mm diameter leak could cost your business over £2,000 per year, with potential for up to 40% of an unmanaged system’s total air-usage being lost to leakage, whilst electricity costs continue to soar.

A comprehensive programme should be established to report leaks, enabling them to be repaired as soon as possible to minimise losses. Thorite offer a comprehensive compressed-air leak detection service, either as part of a full compressed air audit or simply as an air-leak reduction survey.

Thorite carry out compressed air-leak detection surveys in accordance with the latest ISO standard compressed air energy efficiency assessment ISO011011:2013
