Compressed air often uses more energy than most other equipment in a plant. Leaking air lines, couplings, air tools, hoses and other defective compressed air components can be major sources of energy loss.

The PCMS Engineering compressed gas leakage survey is designed to identify and quantify costly leaks on compressed air and gas systems.  Through the accurate identification of these leaks, we have proved that significant savings can be made to an organisations bottom line with relatively short returns on investment can be achieved.

ultrasonic leak detection


PCMS utilise the latest ultrasonic detection equipment that has the ability to detect leaks of various sizes through various system pressure ranges, providing the maximum accuracy of calculation of costs and return on investment.

The following is a list of some of typical systems that PCMS have surveyed:

Compressed air systems

Nitrogen Systems

Argon Systems

Other welding gas systems

Steam leakage surveys *

*usually combined with Steam heat Loss Surveys

Once the leak is detected the directional noise value is then recorded which is then utilised along with other key site information to determine the physical cost of the leak as well as an estimation of the cost of repair.
