Advantages of working with us


In today’s health and productivity-conscious environment, the quality of your compressed air is very important; both for the long-term operation of your pneumatic tools and equipment, and for ensuring your team are looking after their own respiratory systems by breathing safe air. Compressed air quality is often neglected or not given enough attention.

High-quality compressed air will directly reduce the maintenance and breakdown costs of your pneumatic machinery while enhancing the performance and longevity in the process.

Good compressed air will also reduce rust and dirt build-up in your piping system, which over time adds to the deterioration and failure of the plant being operated.
Air compressors utilise oil to lubricate the moving parts of the air pump. This means there is usually oil contamination in the air supply called oil carry-over.

Other harmful fumes such as carbon monoxide can be drawn-in by the air compressor and add to the already toxic air supply.  This air contamination, if present, needs to be effectively removed by correct filtration, if you are to guarantee the safety of your staff, consumers, and equipment.  
  • Healthier, safer, more productive staff
  • Higher equipment longevity
  • Higher product quality
  • Lower maintenance costs
  • Higher plant reliability
  • Lower breakdown costs
  • Do you have an ageing plant, and need to know the best plan for replacement for capex planning?
  • Does your compressed air usage vary a lot during production?
  • Do you frequently run out of air in your factory?
  • Are you concerned your current compressor is not the best or most efficient solution for your needs?
  • Are you looking to reduce your carbon-footprint?
If you answer ‘YES’ to any of the above questions, you really need a full air audit of your factory.  Knowing the best plan for replacement of ageing equipment can help with Capex and cash-flow planning for the short-medium term for any sized business.

If you air usage varies, or you’re frequently running out of air in your factory, you really need to know exactly how much air you need, and when! Or if your current compressor was a second-hand purchase or left over from a previous enterprise, it could be very over-sized for your operation.  All of these examples could mean you are paying for power to run your compressor when it’s not being used!

Even if you’re simply looking to reduce your carbon footprint – an air audit will highlight where your money is being spent, electricity is being wasted, and leaks not being repaired.  Installing highly efficient variable speed and permanent magnet compressors, along with the correct treatment and disposal of condensate will drastically reduce your carbon footprint.
Vibration can be caused by a variety of conditions including bent shafts, unbalanced rotating parts, worn or bent gears, damaged bearings, misaligned couplings or bearings, or electromagnetic forces.  The most common causes in compressors are unbalanced rotating parts and abnormal aerodynamic forces.

By regularly monitoring the compressor vibration, patterns can be noted over a period of several months.  If the vibration continues to worsen, it likely indicates issues that need urgent remedying.  Being aware of these changes in the compressor will allow timely repair before the situation is irreparable, or will help with forward planning for new equipment, should the compressor not be worth fixing.  This allows time to source new equipment and have it installed on-site ready to go before catastrophic failure of dying equipment.
Absolutely!  Did you know that on average, 20-30% of the total energy consumption in a manufacturing facility is consumed by the compressed air system?  And that it’s common for 30% of compressed air to be wasted on leakage?

This means a massive 9% of your annual electricity bill could be wasted with air leaks!

Most common compressed air leaks are caused by loose air fittings, broken valves, cracked bowls on pressure-regulators, drain valves, inlet valves, dust collector valves, cracked hoses, worn couplers, cup seals, spool valves, o-rings, and open nozzles.

If you can hear a leak it is at least 1cfm!  A leak of this size costs you at least $30 per shift per year, and that’s only 1 leak.
