Air leaks may seem like a small inconvenience, but they can be costly over time and affect production. Leaks can be caused by a multitude of things like loose or cracked pipes. It’s important to stay on top of issues like this to save money and have timely production.
Signs You May Have a Leak
- Pressure Loss
If you’re experiencing more drastic pressure loss this may be a sign of a leak somewhere within the compressed air system. Also, if the compressor is working longer and harder to produce the same pressure, you may have small leaks within the system.
- You Hear it
If you can hear the loss of air this means, there’s a larger leak within the compressed air system and you’re losing air at a rapid pace. These leaks are very costly yet rare, be sure to listen for these leaks whenever you get a chance.
- Your Pipes Are Over 5 Years Old
As piping systems gets older, they will develop leaks causing air loss. It’s smart to repair or update your piping every 5 years.
- You Lose Compressed Air When It’s Not Running
