Industrial Gas Audits and Leak Detection Services can often reduce the cost and improve the performance of your metals and materials processing operation. Audits can be as broad or as narrow as required by your facility, from comprehensive assessments of the entire gas supply system and storage tanks, all the way through the piping to the individual use points - to review of the gas flow control, metering, and blending equipment, or the actual furnaces and process equipment that use the gas. Our engineers can inspect, audit, leak check and recommend repairs for your gas system as part of a comprehensive assessment to help enhance safety, reliability and operating performance.
“How do I know if I'm wasting gas due to leaks in my gas piping?”
Gas piping leaks can result from various conditions, including improper thread sealing, missed brazed joints, defective piping, over pressurization, or even vibration and shocks. A pinhole leak can cost you tens of thousands of dollars per year, depending on the size, number and severity of the leak(s). There are many ways to detect leaks; for instance, using soap tests, pressure drop tests, ultrasonic, mass spectometry or thermal conductivity tests. They all have their place; however, they also often come with limitations in precision, speed, difficulty or cost. Air Products’ leak detection service can identify and repair costly leaks in your piping to help improve your part quality and bottom line.
