Compressed air leaks waste thousands of dollars every year. The following example is typical of a medium-size manufacturing plant.

Assumption:
3 - 200 hp compressors (160 kW each)
10 machines
6800 operating hours per year
Leaks account for 25% of annual cost

Total annual cost:

Cost of losses due to leaks:

Part no. List price ea. Qty. Total
AL1322 $371.00 4 $1,484.00
SD8501 $803.00 10 $8,030.00
SD1540 $950.00 3 $2,850.00
EVC108 $27.00 13 $351.00
E18423 $70.00 4 $280.00
       
    Project Total $12,995.00

 

ROI calculation
$12,995 / $40,800 X 12 = 3.8 months payback
