Glaston Compressor Services Ltd is a UK leading specialist in air compressor supply and installation, air compressor system maintenance, nitrogen generators and energy management systems. With a comprehensive portfolio of energy efficient products, Glaston works with a diverse range of customers and industries.

Andrew Gore, Site Reliability Engineer at Baker Hughes contacted Glaston as they were considering a  modernisation project to replace the old air compressors at the Knowsley production site. John Noon, General Manager at Glaston has been working with Baker Hughes for over 25 years and had the knowledge and expertise to advise on the replacement of the existing compressors and the installation of the new machines. John Noon comments “Glaston is the existing supplier to Baker Hughes for their compressed air needs. We supplied and installed the three original HPC compressors over a period of 25 years with the first HPC compressor being installed back in 1990. After undertaking a study of the existing compressor system we proposed a modernisation project to supply and install a new, more energy efficient solution to Baker Hughes using the very latest and more energy efficient HPC compressors. Glaston supplied and installed a new HPC KAESER BSD83 45kW compressor with 2 HPC KAESER ASD50 25kW units, together with a HPC SAM4/4 compressor controller.”

HPC KAESER rotary screw compressors have always been at the forefront for compressed air efficiency. The latest HPC machines use the well proven Sigma profile air end design with the latest energy efficient IE3 & IE4 motors to maintain their position as the most efficient and reliable compressors on the market. The compressors are controlled and monitored by the innovative PC-based SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller which together with the Sigma Air Manager ensures maximum efficiency at all times at the varying air demands on the site.

Andrew Gore of Baker Hughes comments “We have a long-standing and very close working relationship with Glaston going back for many years. Glaston has always provided a first class service to Baker Hughes and using their knowledge and expertise with this most recent project together with the HPC compressors has resulted in substantial energy savings projected to be in the region of £7.5k per year. We are very pleased with how the project was managed and we look forward to the new HPC compressor system providing reliable and efficient service for the next 25 years.”
