We were contacted by a customer in Bolton, Greater Manchester, who was looking to replace two old Atlas Copco Compressors which had become inefficient, being costly to run and repair.
Our solution was to recommend two new compressors from the Worthington Energy Efficient Range - one Fixed Speed Compressor and one Variable Speed Compressor.
Our engineers installed the two new Worthington Compressors, models RLR35V and RLR35 and, as part of the project, also supplied and fitted a new fridge dryer, filters and an oil/water separator.
The answer is ‘yes’! The new Energy Efficient Compressors will save the customer approximately £12K per year in reduced electricity costs, a saving which means that the customer’s investment will have paid for itself within two and a half years.
Also, requiring less service and maintenance, the new fixed speed and variable speed compressors will save the customer money previously spent each year on expensive repairs to their old plant. The new compressors will also out-perform the old compressors, running 24hrs a day, 7 days per week.
With the efficiency savings and with the additional benefits that the new system allows for future expansion and has full 24 hour cover, the customer is ‘delighted’ with the massive improvement to their old compressed air system.
