Supplying and installing a new compressed air system following a major failure on their ageing duty air compressor.
Abel Systems Ltd used one of our hire compressors to get production back up to full capacity and avoid unnecessary downtime while they waited for their new system.
Abel Systems Ltd had a major breakdown on their duty air compressor which significantly reduced production as their standby machine was undersized.
Their duty air compressor was an Atlas Copco GA608 fixed speed machine. At 36 years old it had reached the point in its lifecycle where it was no longer economical to maintain and it was oversized for their current production demand.
Abel Systems Ltd recognised their need for a new machine and contacted Simm Engineering Group. We advised them to invest in a new Atlas Copco variable speed drive air compressor to ensure their system was reliable and energy efficient.
Within hours of a site visit we had installed a hire compressor to get production back up to full capacity.
Once this was installed, we were able to conduct a free energy audit over 7 days. The data logging report looked at compressed air demand, pressure and current over a seven-day period, identifying energy costs and where savings could be made.
From this we designed, supplied and installed a compressed air system to meet their exact requirements, including the following equipment:
We were able to install a hire compressor within hours of the initial site visit. With over 250 pieces of equipment in our hire fleet, including air compressors, vacuum pumps and chillers, we are ready to react when our customers need us. Our focus is helping customers to avoid unnecessary downtime.
For Abel Systems Ltd this was exactly what they needed – the company who could get them back up and running the fastest.
“From start to finish Andrew at Simm recognised the importance of maintaining production at 100%.
“The prompt supply of a hire machine helped us to do this whilst we waited for our new machine to be installed.”
