New compressors bring savings at Vernacare

Tuesday 8th January 2013

Thorite has supplied and installed two new compressors at Bolton-based human waste management specialists Vernacare.

The compressors have been designed to offer a combination of reliability and energy-saving characteristics and comprise an HPC 90kW fixed speed CSDX162 plus an HPC 110kW variable speed model DSD202. Located in the main production plant, the two machines are currently saving Vernacare over 6% in energy usage while providing trouble-free performance.

Speaking of the installation Graeme Topping, Vernacare's Engineering Manager said: "As part of our on-going site energy reduction plan, the new HPC compressors have performed superbly and achieved significant energy savings. Our association with Thorite goes back over 20 years. They work very closely with us, providing valuable technical support, including the exclusive supply of pneumatic components, and have successfully delivered on everything they promised us. We are now benefiting from lower energy bills, reduced service costs and outstanding machine reliability - and with us now having agreed a 5 year "total care" service contract I'm confident that this situation is set to continue."

2012 Best Factory Award winner Vernacare employs over 200 people and specialises in the design, manufacture and supply of hospital bedpans, urinal bottles, washbowls and other products made from recycled paper pulp, which prevent cross infection. This cost efficient, environmentally friendly system is now used in over 90% of all UK hospitals and more than 40 countries worldwide. The company manufactures over 150 million pulp mouldings per year, with all products manufactured to BSI standards.
