Leakage is the major cause of inefficiency in compressed air systems. A typical system under constant operation with only a ¼” leak can cost an average of $8,300 per year in lost energy.

A large manufacturer was facing increased costs due to energy loss and man-hours spent tightening contact lugs on 16 motors. The contact lugs coming loose through vibration and harmonic loosening were accounting for an energy loss of about 13%, and were consuming as much as eight man hours per week to re-tighten them. The cost in dollars was calculated to be approximately $250 per motor, per year. An Applied® plant assessment discovered the efficiency problem and the plant now saves a total of $4,000 each year.
