    Driving Down Energy Costs with Acoustic Imaging

    It is all possible with FLIR


    In today's challenging economic climate, businesses are grappling with soaring energy expenses. Amidst mounting costs and uncertain futures, industries worldwide are seeking innovative solutions to curb consumption and streamline expenditures. Get into the world of acoustic imaging - an invaluable tool offering manufacturers a lifeline in the fight against escalating operating costs and maintenance expenses.

    Why are air leaks so expensive?

    As energy prices soar to nearly double since 2021, businesses confront unprecedented hurdles in controlling operational costs and maintaining competitiveness. Inefficient machinery and undetected air leaks further compound these challenges, driving up energy consumption, decreasing productivity, and escalating maintenance expenses. The financial repercussions of unaddressed air leaks are dire, leading to substantial energy wastage, significant financial losses, and hampering efforts to enhance profitability.

    The Cost of Air Leaks:

    • Wasted Energy: Approximately 80% of energy in a compressor system is lost through heat dissipation, with up to a third of usable energy lost to leaks, resulting in exorbitant energy bills.
    • Production Disruption: Air leaks can lead to equipment malfunction and production downtime, disrupting workflow and delaying deliveries, leading to lost revenue opportunities.
    • Equipment Damage: Air leaks can cause damage to machinery and equipment, necessitating costly repairs and replacements, further adding to operational expenses.
    • Safety Hazards: Air leaks pose safety risks to personnel and equipment, potentially leading to accidents, injuries, and regulatory fines, compounding financial losses.
