SCALES LEAK STUDY CAN REDUCE COSTS

Air Leaks

Air leaks are one of the largest contributors of waste in a compressed air system. For many companies, air leaks can account for up to 30% of total compressed air usage consuming thousands of dollars in energy and impacting system performance in many ways. A Scales Industrial Technologies Leak Study could reduce your operational costs significantly. We can identify and tag existing leaks, quantify them, and provide determinations as to the cost of repair or proper course of action.
