Advanced Thermal Mass Flow Meters

Monitor for Leak Detection

Compressed air system leaks can also cause a drop in system pressure, force equipment to cycle more frequently, and lead to additional maintenance requirements and downtime. Install flow meters, monitor flow, and get improved efficiency.

ROI for Improved Efficiency

According to a study done by the Department of Energy, depending on the extent of leaks in a given compressed air system, savings per year can be from $78 - $262 (annual leak cost per SCFM). This has a tremendous impact on energy savings.

Reduce Costs

Repairing leaks is critical to reducing plant operating and maintenance costs. Fox Thermal Flow meters use a high-accuracy sensor to provide an excellent method for evaluating how much energy is wasted by locating these serious gas leaks.

Precision Compressed Air Measurement with Fox Thermal Mass Flow Meters

Compressed air system leaks can also cause a drop in system pressure, force equipment to cycle more frequently, and lead to additional maintenance requirements and downtime. Anywhere from 7 to 10 times more costly than electrical energy, compressor systems require optimal performance and air flow control.

By installing a Fox Thermal compressed air flow meter to monitor for leaks, increases in usage that could be caused by any leaks can be identified quickly. Compressed air can become costly when air leaks are ignored. Often, plant personnel may assume that an air leak is inexpensive and a low priority since it does not pose a safety concern, but uncorrected air leaks can quickly add up to thousands of dollars in energy costs.
