How to choose the correct equipment for my construction application?
Pneumatic tools and equipment are used to complete many operations within the sector, such as breaking, sawing and drilling. Compressors are integral to these tasks, but one size does not fit all and specifications and air pressure requirements vary depending on the application (E.g. superficial sandblasting will require different performance criteria to heavy duty geothermal drilling.) Achieving optimum performance and continuous output while keeping maintenance costs to a minimum is overall a key challenge for the construction industry. Noise pollution, carbon emissions, heavy machinery, and the requirement for reliable operation – even in extreme temperatures and adverse conditions – are further complicating factors.
Power supply is also a very common requirement when it comes to construction operations. Hybrid solutions, a tandem between energy storage systems and power generators, help to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions on site, having a significant impact in the overall projects’ productivity. Light towers – solar, electric or diesel – are often seen illuminating these operations, ensuring safety and extending the working day. And, when it comes to dewatering applications, electric submersible pumps and surface units, are ready to deliver when a project is compromised with unexpected flooding.
