The pneumatics doctor will see you now...

Tuesday 18th February 2014

Suffering from an arthritic air supply, constipated compressors or pains in your processing system? Then a visit to Thorite's newly appointed pneumatics doctor can provide just the right prescription to get your plant back to robust health.

Thorite, long been recognised as the UK's biggest independent distributor of all forms of pneumatics, is rolling out a unique "pneumatics surgery" service at its Brierley Hill, West Midlands Sales and Service Centre aimed at providing expert advice to keep compressed air systems in peak condition.

Thorite's West Midlands' customers are being invited to submit basic appraisals of pneumatics problems to James Paskell, the company's Pneumatics Applications Manager, enabling him to gain an insight into possible solutions. The customer is then given a free one hour appointment with James to discuss their situation in detail, outline remedies and arrange a site visit if required.

Speaking of the new service James said: "Profitable pneumatics operation depends on efficient operation. It is generally accepted that over 10% of electricity consumed by industry is used to generate compressed air, yet in a poorly managed system between 30-40% of this air can be wasted. I'm looking forward to providing the best advice possible to help local industry, whether it's discussing the latest energy-efficient machinery, organising air audits, data logging or conducting energy surveys. I'm convinced that the pneumatics surgeries will be a popular addition to Thorite's established range of specialist customer services."

The surgeries will take place on Tuesdays each week at the Brierley Hill Sales and Service Centre and James Paskell can be contacted on 07969 875615 or

Plans are now being finalised to offer similar facilities at more of Thorite's network of 10 regional centres located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire and the North East.
