Air4u Limited can now offer Air Leak Detection. 


Leaks in the compressed air supply of your production are responsible for unintentional compressed air loss. This leads to higher energy consumption and thus, increasing energy costs and CO2 emissions. 

With the METPOINT CID leak management system, we can find, log and cost air leaks, so you can prioritise remedial work required to reduce your energy costs.

It operates without interrupting plant operation, reached system areas that are hard to access, and locates all air leaks. The leak detector uses ultrasound to find even distant leaks. To do this, you systematically walk along the compressed air lines and use headphones to hear whether you are approaching a leak. 

Air4u can arrange for an experienced Engineer to visit your site with our state-of-the-art METPOINT CID leak management system. During the leak survey, there should be no interruption to your production, depending on access to your system. Every leak found is tagged and logged by our Engineer. Afterwards, you will receive an itemised, written report which shows the results in a clearly understood and actionable format.

How do we do it? 

Assess your compressed air pipework distribution system. 

A simple walk the line so that we can better understand your distribution system and usage. If you have a schematic of your system available, such as a Written Scheme of Examination, it makes our work easier! 

Carry out the ultrasonice leak detection test.

With our state-of-the-air tester, which will recognise any the compressed air leaks. It also carries out on-board analysis to pinpoint the exact source of the leak and the exact size of the leak, in litres/minute. We can also take pictures of the leak to pinpoint it for accuracy.

Identify and tag leaks.

Each tag will carry an identifaction number, so that when you get your report, it is easy for you to see the location and severity of the leak.

Report the results.

The report will show, leak location, photographs and tag number, as well as useful information like, severity of a leak and the cost of the leak.

Best practice advice is that the percentage of compressed air lost to leakage should be less than 10% of your total compressed air production. Therefore, we recommend that your system is checked for leaks at least once a year. This proactive approach should enable you to keep a tighter control on the system and potential energy wastage.
