When you open your Compressed Gas Report (you can view a tutorial by clicking here) you will need to know three things in order for this report to work. First, you need to know what the db levels are for the leaks (you get this from your Ultraprobe). Second, you need to know what the pressure is at each of these leaks (this spreadsheet is an estimator because you only have a few options to choose from your pressure at leak. It is wise to underscore your pressure because if you have a pressure of 90 psi you don’t want to choose 100 in your spreadsheet because it will over-inflate your dollar amount. You always want to choose the lower pressure value. This way you will be more conservative of your findings.) Finally, you need to know how much you pay for electricity (per KWh) or how much you pay per 1000 cubic feet for any specialty gases you might have at that facility.Once you plug those figures in, your report will then start crunching the numbers and it will then spit out the dollar figures for each individual leak that you just found from your survey. It will give you a grand total (in dollars) of all of the leaks you found. After you finish plugging in the values for your report you can then start typing in where the leaks are located within the problem description.
If you have fixed some of the leaks you can type in “Y” under the “Repaired” column. It will then add that dollar value to the overall “Repaired” slot which will be located just under the “Cost Avoidance.” This report will also give you the percentage of all the leaks that you have repaired within this survey. The survey will also have CFM values for each individual leak and it will give values for the greenhouse gases for each individual leak as well.With all of this data at your fingertips you’ll be able to continue to help your organization cut down on energy waste, and best of all, save money!
