We always strive to come up with innovative solutions that help you optimise the way you use your air compressor systems, save you energy and reduce the carbon footprint of your operations.
Our innovative compressed air solutions include super-efficient variable speed driven air compressors, Class 0 oil-free compressors, energy saving air blowers, Smartlink compressor monitoring systems , aluminium and stainless steel compressed air pipework, nitrogen and oxygen generators, as well as parts and service for all compressor brands and types.
Simply put, we understand that energy consumption, which represents around 80% of the total lifecycle cost of a compressed air system, is one of your main pain points and we invest in innovative solutions to lower your energy bills.
Air compressors generate heat energy that can be harnessed for other purposes in the operating environment. For instance, waste heat from the compressor can be recycled as hot water which could be used within certain manufacturing processes, or it could be redirected into the heating or hot water system of the building.
You should specify your compressed air system by flow and pressure – not KW or horsepower. When correctly matched in terms of pressure and flow, compressed air equipment can offer:
Because there are 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!
Assess present and future needs by first checking out the existing compressed air systems from air output to point of use, with a thorough air audit.
Do not rely solely on the stated motor power rating to match the air compressor performance to the process air demand.
Start with the air pressure and flow requirement and then find the best fit in terms of drive motor power. Always keep in mind: pressure + flow = energy = cost.
What type of air quality do you need? Is an oil-injected compressor plus filtration sufficient for your application or do you need a genuine oil-free compressor?
