A compressed air system supplied by Thorite has enabled a specialist chemical manufacturer to make significant improvements to its production process, while maximising energy savings.
Thorite's Capital Equipment team routinely specifies and supplies compressed air systems that include several pieces of industrial hardware – from compressors, chillers, filtration equipment, pumps and integrated pipework systems.
The system supplied for the chemical manufacturer included installation of an HPC Kaeser 37kW variable speed, frequency controlled compressor, a Parker Hyperchill process chiller, and associated pipework.
The customer chose an HPC compressor to provide reliable compressed air to a range of automated production machines used to manufacture a range of powders, while the Parker Hyperchill process chiller cooled the machines during the production process. In addition to the compressor and chiller, Thorite also installed a compressed air distribution network with take-offs at specified points, together with a range of transfer pumps for moving raw product directly into specific production areas.
To supplement complex capital projects, Thorite can provide a full aftersales support service for all customers, where full 24 hour/365 days per year back-up can be provided to protect any investment in compressed air plant and minimise production downtime.
Thorite Aftermarket Solutions is a new concept for after-sales customer care, replacing previously outdated service contracts by providing customers with a menu of service and support options that are tailored to their specific requirements. The resulting package gives customers greater added value and a much more focused service from Thorite’s team of capital equipment sales and support specialists.
