Leak Detection

Compressed air leaks can commonly account for 20-50% of a plant’s total compressed air consumption. Frequently, fixing leaks is as simple as tightening a loose connector and as such can provide an extremely attractive payback period.

Ash Air have Technicians who hold the UEQ-TC-1A certification (Recommended Practice for Personal Qualification and Certification in Airborne Ultrasound) for ultrasonic air leak detection, who can not only detect the leaks but can provide on the spot repairs. Most leak detetion programs that are carried out do not offer this service as standard but at Ash Air we can save you money from the minute we start on your site.

Q. Do I need to stop my plant to carry out a Leak Detection ?

A. Ash Air are actively looking for energy saving solutions within the market place and are keen to pass on to its customers significant energy savings. A leak detection survey on your compressed air system is one way that we can do this for our customers. A survey can be carried out with minimal disruption to your production schedule and we are happy to work in with you to establish the best possible way of achieving this. The survey can be carried out during the normal operation of your plant / facility or we can arrange to carry this out whether it is during a scheduled shutdown, weekend shutdowns, overnight audit or during production

Ash Air is equipped with latest and powerful ULTRA Probe 10000 leak detection equipment. It has trained engineers to the internationally accredited ANSI /ASNT CP-189 and ASTM E 1002-2005 standards under the guidance of a US Technical Specialist with the support of Energy Research Group of University of Waikato in the Engineering Faculty.
