The Lowdown on Leakage

Choosing the most reliable fittings and installing them correctly can save you money and make the workplace safer. Consider the many costs and consequences of leakage:

leaks contribute to wasted fluid

Lost Fluid

Millions of gallons are wasted each year (1 gallon of hydraulic fluid = ~$14 USD)

leaks contribute to lost production in offshore oil

Lost Production

Especially important in offshore oil where laws already limit production to a specific number of days per month

leaks contribute to equipment damage

Equipment Damage

Loss of lubrication can lead to premature wear/machine failure

leaks contribute to off-specification product

Off-Specification Product

Can be produced inadvertently due to improperly calibrated or operating instruments; material must be reworked, sold at reduced price, or disposed of

leaks contributed to a degraded work environment

Degraded Work Environment

Oil drippage can cause accidents; emissions can be expensive, dangerous — even illegal

leaks can lead to noncompliance fines

Fines for Noncompliance

Systems and equipment that violate validated processes can quickly become costly

leaks contribute to mass cleanup efforts

Cleanup

It takes time to locate and repair leaks; some call for special teams to manage toxic chemicals. There’s also the cost of shutting down a system to thoroughly clean it
