Glass manufacturer saves cash with tailored, efficient, package
AFS were able to tailor a package that was up to 75% more cost efficient than other suppliers and in doing so delivered lower acquisition costs, lower maintenance figures and a decreased environmental footprint.
Glass manufacturing is well-known for its high emission levels, so in order to continue to manufacture a premium product, the client needed to invest in a state-of-the-art filtration system for their plant in Yorkshire, UK.
The filter system identified was an intricate and multi-stage system designed by German supplier ‘Lührfilter’. However, in order to operate effectively, their filter requires large volumes of compressed air.
It would be easy for a compressed air company to have a quick scan of our requirement figures and provide a quote for a compressor unit. Sure it would do the job but it wouldn’t be the best solution for us. AFS tailored their solution exact for our business requirements.
In order to deliver a cost effective and sustainable supply for this demand, the client required a tailored and creative solution.
AFS were able to quickly identify that while a 70kw compressed air system may seem to be required, that actually a number of much small units could handle the manufacturing requirements.
As a result, AFS were able to table a package that was up to 75% more cost efficient than other suppliers and in doing so delivered lower acquisition costs, lower maintenance figures and a decreased environmental footprint.
They analysed every possible aspect of our manufacturing process and provided us with a cost effective, energy efficient solution.
