Saving Areas > Air feeding
Do you have a shut off valve?:
Static leakage is the air consumption measured when a machine is stopped. Typically, this value is 10% of the whole air consumption, but you can select a different percentage based on direct measurements.
Do you have a consumptions/leakages monitoring system?
Dynamic leakage is the difference between the expected air consumption and the air consumption measured when the machine is working. Ofter due to wear, typically this value is 10% of the whole air consumption, but you can select a different percentage based direct measurements.
Could you reduce operating pressure?
Please select the appropriate operating pressure according to the application (SMC suggests not to exceed 5 bars).
