PPS engineers visited the site and carried out an energy audit on the compressed air system. The type of air compressor they had cycles between load and unload and during the unloaded phase energy wastage occurs. Although it was still working, simulations showed that a new air compressor would give significant energy savings.
As well as the fast payback and immediate cost savings, the reduction in Co2 will help the company as it works towards gaining its ISO 14001 accreditation.
“We’re extremely happy with the new compressor and the service we received from PPS. The installation was a painless transition, the engineers were very professional and worked around our working hours. The overall experience was extremely good and has caused me no headaches, which is all you can ask for.”
