We set the industry standard with innovative solutions including super-efficient variable speed driven air compressors, Class 0 oil-free compressors, energy saving blowers, Smartlink monitoring systems , aluminium and stainless steel compressed air pipework, nitrogen and oxygen generators, as well as spare parts and service for all rotating equipment.
There could be a number of pressure/flow variants within each air compressor kW category. E.g. Atlas Copco has four models in the 11 kW range that represent a 30% differential in flow rate (from 28.7 l/s to 35.8 l/s at 7 bar.g) and over 32% difference in the unit’s purchase price! So the question becomes how do you choose or size a compressor? Which air compressor is right for your business? Which air compressor supplier should I choose?
Modern compressed air equipment, when correctly matched in terms of compressor pressure and flow to process demands, can offer reduced specific energy requirements, improved productivity, and lower lifecycle costs. Their enhanced performance may allow a lower kW rated machine to be specified at a correspondingly smaller purchase price and reduced running costs in comparison to higher rated equipment. It pays to apply a few essential rules when choosing a new compressor:
Air leaks, overdue servicing, inefficient running are all problems that face compressed air users everywhere. And though you may feel your installation is in good condition, you'd be surprised to find out what a trained eye can spot. Watch this video to find out why you should have an #airCHECK.
