New compressors power packaging processes

Monday 2nd February 2009

Thorite, the UK's largest supplier of pneumatic products and process systems, has installed the latest HPC compressor systems at Gateshead-based flexible packaging specialist Scholle Europe.

Scholle Europe is a world leader in bag-in-box packaging for the wine & spirits, food, beverage and industrial markets. The company has recently relocated from its previous Team Valley site to premises in nearby Wardley and the new compressors have been installed to power all the new plant's pneumatic requirements.

The compressors were supplied by Thorite's Tyneside outlet, Hogg Pneumatic Solutions.

Steve Huntsman, Scholle Europe's Maintenance and Facilities Advisor, has been impressed by the quality of service he's received and said: "The main factors that swung the job Thorite's way were down to the price I was quoted and the expertise of the staff I dealt with. The price was extremely competitive and the applications/sales engineer understood our requirements very well. Thorite's initial system design was accurate and the compressors were installed and commissioned on schedule. Good documentation, a flexible approach and constant support throughout the project were also much in evidence."

The complete HPC installation comprises:
1 x HPC CSD102SFC air cooled variable speed rotary screw compressor with 55kW EEFI motor.
3 x HPC BSD72 air cooled fixed speed rotary screw compressors with 37Kw EEFI motors.
Other HPC equipment includes a pressure band controller, air receiver, condensate drain, air dryer, filters, activated carbon tower and an oil/water separator unit.

Hogg Pneumatic Solutions, which recently moved to new purpose-designed premises on the Tyne Tunnel Trading Estate and can be contacted on 0191 258 2623, is just one of nine Thorite Sales and Service Centres which are located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire and the North East.
