Thorite targets compressed air inefficiencies

Friday 18th November 2005

Compressed air and fluid process control systems specialists, Thorite, are mounting a series of direct marketing campaigns aimed at increasing industry's awareness of the cost and energy-saving benefits inherent in the latest compressor technology.

The price of electricity is increasing at an alarming rate. Couple this with the fact that leakage from many compressed air systems can account for as much as 40% of total output and the scale of savings energy-efficient air production can bring begins to become apparent.

Thorite are offering "Air Audits" to enable companies to identify major sources of wasted energy, by data logging compressor plants. Once the audit's results have been analysed the most energy-efficient new compressor system solution can be recommended.

However, new capital equipment purchase can obviously put a strain on industry too, so Thorite also provide advice on the government-backed Energy-Effeciency Loan Scheme from the Carbon Trust.

These loans feature 0% interest and are unsecured. They enable most companies to borrow between £5,000 and £100,000, with repayment over 1, 2, 3 or 4 years, with no arrangement fees.

The use of energy-efficient compressors may also enable companies to take advantage of the government's Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme (ECA) providing "up front" tax relief for businesses paying corporation or income tax.

Energy efficiency is good news for everyone - lower carbon emissions reduce the risks associated with climate change and energy bills start to reduce as soon as a new energy-efficient compressor begins operation - even better, the loan advice available from Thorite can enable companies to install the latest compressed air systems at no extra cost!
