NEWS: Problems with Compressed Air Leaks

Compressed air is used widely throughout the UK, across a variety of industries, powering equipment such as process machinery, valves and actuators, and even hand tools. Although it’s incredibly convenient and sometimes essential for safety reasons, compressed air can be expensive and it’s vital that you keep your system in a good, working, condition. No air should be wasted, so it’s important to keep an eye out for air compressor leaks and know what to look out for.

In the majority of cases, air compressor leaks are the biggest cause of compressed air wastage. There are many causes of leaks and you may not even know you have one, especially if it’s been there for a long time. We are able to use ultrasonic leak testing facilities to discover if you have a leak in your system. It’s better to be safe than sorry, if you do have a leak it will be detrimental to your system efficiency.

Here at ACL Engineering, we understand the importance of having an efficient air compressor system. You may not even realise how much it’s costing you, or that there is even an issue to begin with if the system has been running in the same way for a while.

However, air compressor technology is constantly evolving and becoming more energy efficient, which is incredibly important in this modern world we’re living in.


To ensure that your system is up and running to its fullest potential, we can offer you a free Air Check. We’ll be able to take a look at your current system and its efficiency, and discover if there are any leaks or other issues. These checks are quick and able to be carried out without any disruption to your production, in as little as just ten minutes. Our engineers will complete a visual inspection of your entire compressed air system and check the equipment for condition and appropriate capacity, ISO compliance, unproductive running and, arguably most importantly, for leaks.

After we have completed the Air Check, you’ll be given a no-obligation written report, highlighting your running efficiency and where improvements or energy savings could be made. Even small changes can be enough to offer you many long-term financial benefits.
