LEAQS (Leak Management Solutions)
The LEAQS System will save you energy and the environment
If you want to achieve verified energy savings in your compressed air system it requires an overall view of all the parameters that affect results. Compressed air is a complex media to manage. Every single action you do in the system affects another. That is why we work to assist our clients by addressing all the issues in order to achieve maximum results.
The LEAQS system is the world’s most used system for leakage management with close to 6000 documented projects. We work with the world's leading corporations in virtually all types of industry.
The LEAQS system 6 key areas
Leakage data – information on the number of leakages, volume, cost, CO2 emissions, leaking products and brands, exact location, type of media. Project Management – Managing the repair process determines the financial success of the programme. Identifying the major leakages, their cost, required repair time and the exact material requirements allow our clients to effectively allocate the optimal amount of resources.
Repair – In order to facilitate effective repair the system allows you produce detailed reports on location, required repair time, material requirements down to individual leakages.
Project evaluation – Results expressed in financial and volume terms. Comparisons to previous surveys, repair efficiency, most common causes of leakages, brands is just some of the information you can obtain in order to ensure the viability of the project.
Optimisation – The LEAQS optimization software allows you to identify and quantify savings made in optimising compressed air applications.
Analysis – In the LEAQS system you are able to correlate all entered data which allows you to fully customise reports for key areas of information. Major problem areas, financial information, management reports, supplier evaluation etc. is vital information in making decisions about the compressed air system.
Optimisation of Compressed Air Applications
Next to leakage management, optimisation of compressed air applications is the most energy saving measure you can do in a compressed air system.
LEAQS have engineers with vast experience of discovering optimisation opportunities in pneumatics and compressed air applications. A professional control of pressure, dimensioning, blowing applications and general functions usually represent a further 25% of the savings potential. The LEAQS optimisation software allows you to document the measures taken and calculate savings.
Most of which have a pay-back period that is less than 6 months.
Measuring & Surveillance
Without compressed air your production stops. Considering the importance of compressed air it is surprising that less than 10% of companies monitor its use and critical levels.
To take control of consumption by monitoring its use and the pressure development in the system is a means of ensuring reliability of the system. It also means that you can verify and visualise the various actions and improvements you make in the system.
LEAQS can assist you in getting full control of consumption, pressure and dew point by installing temporary or permanent monitoring. Measuring is knowing.
Understanding the factors that drive compressed aircosts and quality is the first step in starting energy saving projects. Compressed air is a complex media that requires impartial training in order to succeed. The basic principles of compressed air, cost factors, dimensioning and general guidelines is probably the best investment you can make. It is also a pre-requisite for evaluating other actions you need to do in your compressed air system.
LEAQS conduct training programs that are completely client orientated and through compressed air seminars.
