Compressed air solution for leading building materials manufacturer

19th November 2014

AFS has secured the contract to install a new compressed air system at the latest manufacturing plant of one of world’s leading construction aggregate producers.

After carrying out an on-site audit at an existing plant and successfully scheduling an ongoing maintenance and upgrade schedule, AFS was then asked to design, install and commission a new system at a new location.

Requiring compressed air for pneumatic operations during the manufacturing process, AFS has been tasked with delivering a solution to generate flow rates of 13m3/hr at 7BAR to Class 2 standards.

Utilising variable speed drive compressors, AFS will be able to ensure optimal on-demand supply combined with sustainable energy efficiencies which are based on peak times usage.

The solution, which combines components from CompAir and Parker, is due for installation and commissioning later this year.

Commenting on the project, Managing Director Andy Ryan said:
After demonstrating our value added approach to the initial audit, the client knew we were the right supplier to fit our their next plant.

As an independent company, we have been able to source the right technology to deliver the best solution. The new installation will be accompanied by a 5 year serviced warranty including a maintenance schedule to ensure ongoing efficiencies.
