Compressor cooks up savings at Omega Kitchens

Thursday 1st November 2007

Leading compressed air products and systems specialist, Thorite, has supplied a new 75kW HPC variable speed drive air compressor to high quality kitchens and kitchen furniture manufacturer, Omega Plc of Doncaster.

Omega Plc are currently engaged in a major expansion programme which will culminate in a state of the art manufacturing, distribution and trade showrooms complex of 315,000sq ft at their Thorne, Doncaster HQ.

The original, Thorite-supplied, HPC 37kW compressor had performed very reliably but lacked the capacity to produce the volumes of compressed air the enlarged manufacturing plant would require.

Thorite and HPC engineers carried out a data-logging exercise to analyse both the plant's current and projected compressed air usage. The new 75kW compressor was identified as being more than capable of meeting future demand, with extra capacity in reserve.

The compressor's advanced design also ensures improved performance and optimum energy efficiency, enabling worthwhile savings to be made on electricity charges.

The Thorite contract includes new pipework for a compressed air ring main to the new plant extension, ducting to provide additional heating, all related electrical installation and full service back up.
