Case study: ensuring an uninterrupted air supply

A leading pharmaceutical company required the temporary supply of compressed air whilst its existing asset was in for repair. Based on the company’s longstanding and trusted relationship with Atlas Copco Specialty Rental UK, they turned to us for the solution!

Customer challenge

A temporary supply of compressed air to replace the existing asset that needed repair

Our solution

Atlas Copco Rental quickly provided an oil-free air compressor

The result

Remained fully operational during the repair whilst offering the same quality

A class (zero) act

As part of its operational license, our customer is to always have a fully functional compressed air supply and therefore has two compressors on duty as a contingency. The company required an interim air supply to satisfy this requirement whilst its ZT50 was being repaired. Our customer creates pharmaceuticals which improve the health of both people and animals, it was of critical importance that this temporary air was oil free as it eliminates the risk of end-product contamination. We therefore recommended our ZT55 VSD FF (full feature) which is an ISO 8573-1 Class Zero oil-free air compressor. An electric driven air compressor, the ZT55 VSD FF offers variable speed drive – the VSD in its name - which delivers 292 cfm at 8.6 bar or 300 cfm at 7 bar. In addition, it features an integrated dryer. This unique all-in-one package offers valuable space saving, fault-free installation, easy commissioning, and a swift start-up.

The right solution at the right time

We are proud to say we successfully provided our customer with the right solution at the right time. Not only did our asset run flawlessly whilst onsite but we also undertook swift installation and subsequently decommissioning of the asset as required. What’s more, we have received positive feedback from our customer.

We knew Atlas Copco Specialty Rental UK would deliver what we needed, when we needed it. The process is always really straightforward. The Sales Engineer went above and beyond what was required to ensure our site up time was maintained. The unit was delivered and collected on the agreed dates, and a good level of communication was kept throughout.
