Today compressed air plays very important role as part of expense. A huge chunk of expenditure can be saved as such. Effort in terms of monetary and energy will be a waste if even fraction of the compressed air is lost because of leak in the system without making the best use of it. There are leak detection and repair systems that can be adapted to overcome such wastage of compressed air. In this project, a procedure using ultrasonic leak detector to identify, locate and repair leaks is adapted. The summary of controlling already existing leaks and preventing more new air leaks are documented with proper data and information.
