Case Study: Two new compressors for leading supplier of concrete
Avelair’s Compressed Air Consultant, Alex De-Moore, has recently supplied a leading supplier of site-mix and ready-mixed concrete with a number of new and reliable Avelair rotary screw air compressors in Suffolk. The company decided to invest into new compressors to ensure long term reliability for their compressed air supply which they use primarily for material separation. The client wanted to be able to remotely start and stop the compressors from their control towers to increase productivity so remote start stop setup was factory fitted before dispatch.
The Avelair air compressors come as standard with a 5 year warranty offering long term peace of mind . Avelair can do this by using high quality trusted components and quality workmanship from its production facility in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Avelair are now in their 25th year of manufacturing which has seen the company grow from strength to strength.
A refrigerant dryer was also installed to increase the quality of their compressed air. The units are designed to lower the dewpoint of the compressed air to 3°C to remove water carry over and to prevent contamination of the compressed air system. As the air passes through the dryer, it is cooled by a refrigerant. Cold air holds less water vapour than warm air, so as the air cools, the water vapour condenses into liquid water. The air is heated back up to system temperature before re-entering the system in order to prevent any condensation in the pipes and the equipment downstream.
