Technical advice

By understanding the needs of our customers, whatever the compressed air, pneumatic, or fluid handling problem, our competent sales people backed by our specially trained Technical Solutions team will assist in resolving your problems.


Thorite’s business was founded in Pneumatics and we have always taken pride in the fact that we offer the highest levels of technical support be it through our sales centres or through our Thorite Academy training courses. All our staff have a sound working knowledge of pneumatics and our specialists are all manufacturer trained with many years of experience in industrial automation.

Compressed Air Systems

Thorite has been a major supplier of compressors and compressed air systems for over 50 years. We employ a team of specialists who can advise on all aspects of modern energy efficient compressed air systems and installations. Our technical expertise in this field extends even as far as advising on Pressure Systems Regulations and Air Audits.

System Design

Years of systems design experience for many markets and industries means you can have the confidence in us to design a reliable, flexible, optimised and cost effective solution to your system control requirements.

Once your system is designed, built and installed we provide an ongoing technical helpline, backed up with full maintenance spares availability, service in house or on site. We can also provide comprehensive technical training to enable your own staff to maintain your systems in peak working condition

Process and Fluid Handling

Our technical expertise in the control and movement of industrial fluids is legendary. Although we rely to some extent on the backing of our manufacturer partners we actually employ our own highly trained and experienced product manager who oversees all aspects of customer technical support from specifying fit for purpose products through to troubleshooting and all other after sales issues.

What our customers think

“Following a site survey, Thorite recommended a rationalisation program to reduce our inventory and improve efficiency thereby reducing our costs.”

Andy Taylor, Small Pack Engineering Manager - Carlsberg
