Pressure consumption measurement and leakage detection
There is usually complete transparency about the consumption of electricity, water or gas in every company. Even leaks, for example in water supply networks, are usually visible to everyone and can therefore be quickly eliminated. Compressed air, on the other hand, often is lost as waste unnoticeably due to leaks in the consumption network, even at weekends when the compressor is permanently in operation or when it is not needed for production. The amount of energy required to generate compressed air is enormous, since electricity costs account for around 70 to 80 percent of the total costs of a compressed air system.
Even with smaller systems, costs of 10,000 to 20,000 euros per year can quickly arise. It should therefore come as no surprise to anyone that compressed air is one of the most expensive forms of energy in industry. This is reason enough to pay more attention to this topic, if only with regard to possible savings in compressed air and electricity costs.
