GLRPPR Sector Resource: Compressed Air Leak Management Pilot Project
Compressed Air Leak Management Pilot Project
Funded by a state energy grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority, that is the question the IWRC aimed to answer through this 2014 pilot project. Equipped with ultrasonic detection equipment, IWRC environmental specialists conducted 25 audits at small businesses - auto body and manufacturing facilities - throughout Iowa.
IWRC specialists identified and tagged compressed air leaks throughout each facility, documented energy loss and cost savings associated with the leaks and provided corrective action recommendations.
Available documents include an overview and results of the pilot project; a checklist of tips and most common air leak sources; and full results from all 25 businesses.
