Fully integrated air solution launched

Published:  10 September, 2015

A new air solution combining a rotary vane compressor with a range of ancillary equipment including an air receiver, dryer and in-line filtration in a fully integrated package, has been launched by Hydrovane, part of the Gardner Denver Group.

Historically, customers investing in a new compressed air system may have selected each of these component parts separately; a process which can add both cost and time to the overall installation.

With packaged models available from 4kW to 22kW, the Air Solution offers an easily integrated alternative and enables customers to realise significant savings by choosing a single source supplier for all aspects of a compressed air system.

Air Solution is supplied as a factory built package for ease of installation or as a kit for assembly on site. It features a fully enclosed, silenced compressor with three equipment options to provide the ideal air solution. These range from a compressor with an integrated air receiver to a fully connected and ready to run system with air receiver, refrigerant dryer and in-line filtration. Air Solution is also available with a regulated-speed compressor option that continually adapts to meet air demands whilst maintaining maximum energy efficiency.

Hydrovane has also developed an open frame, fixed speed compressor series from 1.1kW to 4kW featuring an air receiver, membrane dryer technology and in-line filtration. Supplied in a horizontal format, this offers an ideal alternative when a fully enclosed unit is not required.

All products in the range feature a host of intelligent design improvements that deliver high energy efficiency and performance including automatic start/stop, low noise levels, ultra dry air and “oil free” filtration down to 0.01 micron.

Ease of maintenance has been considered at every stage of the design, with easy-access components to ensure routine service times can be kept to a minimum. Air Solution packages are also available with Hydrovane’s Advance 10 year extended warranty.

Commenting on the new Air Solution range, Andy Webb, Hydrovane product manager at Gardner Denver said: “Feedback from the market shows that customers want to invest in a compressed air solution that has been optimised to perform as a complete package, rather than building a system around several component parts.

“Building on the success of existing Hydrovane 1.1kW to 4kW compressor packages, the new Air Solution was designed as a factory built package, with easy configuration and fast and simple installation, in a range of sizes to suit many industrial compressed air applications.

“In addition, the new products offer lower production costs, improved energy efficiency and reduced downtime through streamlined routine maintenance as all aspects of the compressed air system can be serviced in one visit by a fully trained and authorised Gardner Denver engineer.”
