Thorite repair kit keeps production going 24/7!

Tuesday 2nd October 2007

Northern England's leading compressed air products and process systems specialists, Thorite, has launched an essential Pneumatics Breakdown Kit. These indispensable products are designed to ensure costly interruptions, due to pneumatic failures on production and processing equipment, are kept to an absolute minimum.

The breakdown kit comes in a robust portable case and contains a carefully selected range of valves, solenoids, fittings and hose clips which are sufficient to cover the most common breakdown occurrences. Now production and maintenance engineers can feel secure in the knowledge that they have the means of effecting simple, quick repairs to their pneumatics systems, resulting in major down-time savings.

Speaking at the launch of the new breakdown kits, Alan Donkersley, Thorite's Sales Director commented: "Thorite is serious about providing the highest levels of service possible for our industrial customers and we are constantly developing new ways to make their operations more efficient. The innovative Pneumatics Breakdown Kit is designed to fix the majority of known failures that occur with pneumatic systems, enabling production equipment to keep operating 24/7. Although the repair may not represent the final solution, it will be more than adequate until the correct like-for-like components can be delivered and installed, or until a Thorite Engineer can advise on a complete solution to prevent the failure recurring."

The Pneumatic Breakdown kits contain over £220.00 of products, but are priced at just £150.00. They are available from Thorite's National Distribution Centre on freephone 0800 034 5850, from any of the company's eight regional Sales and Service Centres or online at
