New compressor saves money at IMS

New compressor saves money at IMS

Wednesday 24th January 2007

Thorite, the north of England's leading supplier of pneumatic products and systems, recently installed a new Hydrovane 11kw compressor at Bradford-based office furniture manufacturers IMS Office Fitting and Design Ltd.

Thorite's engineers spent a week data-logging the efficiency of the IMS's compressed air system, which is used to drive CNC machines, air tools and spray equipment.

The data-logging results pointed to problems with the production of compressed air and it was decided to simulate the replacement of the existing compressor with Hydrovane's latest product, an ultra energy-efficient 11kw, vertical vane model, which had just been released.

Using the performance parameters of the new compressor it was immediately apparent that its installation would enable IMS to make significant savings on its overall electrical consumption. With the new Hydrovane now in place IMS reports savings of over £500 in annual electricity charges, as well as having benefited from enhanced capital tax relief, thanks to the compressor's "green" credentials.

The Hydrovane range of compressors is just one of a comprehensive collection of energy-efficient pneumatic products available from Thorite, which are enjoying increasing demand as their money saving attributes become more widely appreciated by industry in general.
