Accurate diagnosis brings healthy savings for top pharmaceuticals manufacturer

Friday 31st May 2013

Major European contract pharmaceuticals developer and manufacturer Recipharm recently called in Thorite engineers to carry out a data logging survey of compressed air production at the company's UK facility in Ashton-under-Lyne. The plant's two existing compressors, which power the total processing requirement, were found to be far from energy efficient. This led to Thorite recommending a single advanced HPC CSD125SFC Variable Speed Compressor to take their place.

The new compressor is now fully commissioned and is already providing impressive benefits: Compared to figures prior to the new compressor’s installation Recipharm's annual energy profile will see carbon output reduced by nearly 64 tonnes, whilst electricity consumption will fall by well over 100,000 kWh and energy bills will drop by nearly £9,500 each year.

Speaking of this much improved situation Les Williams, Recipharm's Project Engineer said: "Thorite's data logging exercise enabled inefficiency problems to be precisely identified - and their expertise has produced a fast and economic solution. The new system will pay for itself from cost savings alone in considerably less than three years, leading to an increase in overall profitability, but the environmental advantages are just as important - and are already happening."

Thorite's Data Logging, Leak Reduction Programmes and complete Compressed Air Audits & Surveys are just some of the services available to any company which utilises compressed air and needs to ensure the ultimate in energy efficiency whilst complying with all current legislation.

Full details are available from the company's head office in Bradford, West Yorkshire or from any of the company's regional network of Sales and Service Centres in Blackburn, Bolton, Doncaster, Huddersfield, Leeds, Rochdale, Sheffield, North Shields and Brierley Hill in the West Midlands.
