Atlas Copco Rental provides large volumes of compressed air - fast!

February 27, 2020

When a global leader in specialty chemicals needed help generating large volumes of compressed air — with extremely little time available for getting the needed equipment in place — Atlas Copco Rental had a powerful answer, and was able to provide it quickly.

After the company’s chemical facility in northeastern Mississippi suffered a stationary compressor failure, the need for supplemental air was urgent — without it, the plant would have to be completely shut down. Time was of the essence, and only the right equipment could meet the need.

A successful solution

Fortunately, Atlas Copco Rental’s Covington, Georgia, branch had the needed equipment on hand, and could get it to the plant on short notice. Personnel from Atlas Copco Rental delivered and installed a ZH 9000 oil-free centrifugal air compressor within 10 days of getting the call. Provided as a plug-and-run package, the ZH 9000 was delivered directly to the worksite in its integrated, 40-foot-long, weatherproof transport container to become a stand-alone mobile air power plant, with only electrical and water hookups needed for the equipment to spring into action. Once placed, the high-volume compressor was capable of providing compressed air at 140 psi (10 bar), offering a maximum flow of 9,000 cfm (254.9 m3/min) — and could do so with an energy-saving design and guaranteed reliability. Further, the provided unit was able to meet needs for constant air or could handle processes with fluctuating air demands. And with its ISO 8573-1 Class 0 certification, the 100% oil-free air supplied by the ZH 9000 was guaranteed not to contaminate the plant’s end products. When the client needed powerful, high-quality equipment in a short period of time, Atlas Copco Rental met the need fast — and kept the plant’s work on track.
