Compressed Air as Energy Savings, Leak Survey and Recognizing Right Fittings to Show Cost Benefits

Rahul Patil and Kevin Rickert
Abstract—Energy savings being one of the most focused topics in every industry. Some leaks that are not obvious or visible has to be detected through technology with tedious work process. This study mainly focuses one of the specialty chemical production unit compressed air leaks through a continuously improving instruments and methods. These studies summarize conclusively that the best “overall” value a company can receive from tube fittings is by investing in higher quality, not by getting the lowest price. Add to this the fact that there are other fluid streams, besides compressed air, that are consumed at production facilities. These fluid streams (such as natural gas, nitrogen, or steam), due to their higher prices compared to compressed air, carry a significantly higher cost savings opportunity, and can more easily help justify standardizing on the highest quality tube fittings.

Index Terms—Energy efficiency and intensity, smart manufacturing, process systems engineering, energy savings.
