Glaston helps manufacturer out of a jam with new HPC KAESER compressor

Glaston was approached by a major British jam manufacturer to upgrade their compressed air equipment in order to meet increasing production demands. As a leading UK supplier of compressed air systems Glaston has been providing high-performance, energy-efficient air compressors to a range of industries for over 30 years. As a consequence we were able to provide a high-quality HPC KAESER compressor that helped this jam manufacturer to maximise their productivity levels in a highly competitive market.

What the customer needed

When a family-owned British manufacturer of jam, marmalade, peanut butter and preserves saw their production demands increase they quickly recognised the need for a larger industrial air compressor, dryer and filters to maximise operational efficiency at their state-of-the-art factory.

With 150,000 jars of peanut butter rolling off their production line every day alone this manufacturer was heavily reliant on the smooth and efficient operation of machinery to maximise their output. As such they approached Glaston to secure first-class air preparation equipment that wouldn’t let them down.

What Glaston did

Glaston recommended the HPC KAESER BSD75 SFC variable speed compressor which we installed along with an ultra-high efficiency refrigerant dryer and high efficiency inline filtration. This versatile industrial air compressor pushes the boundaries of compressed air efficiency delivering more compressed air using less power. It also combines ease of use and simple maintenance with an environmentally responsible design.

This type of HPC KAESER compressor saves money in several ways. The compressor air ends are equipped with flow-optimised SIGMA PROFILE rotors which are controlled and monitored via the industrial PC-based SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller. This enables free air delivery to be precisely matched to actual compressed air demand and ensures maximum energy efficiency. Super premium efficiency IE4 motors also boost energy efficiency even further.

What happened as a result

HPC KAESER has a worldwide reputation for producing class-leading, low specific energy consumption air compressors which ensure the lowest possible operating costs. HPC KAESER compressor systems are renowned for their reliability, durability and efficiency – everything that our jam manufacturing customer required and is now reaping the benefits of as a result.

Glaston was able to equip the customer with a compressed air system that they can dependably operate at full load 24 hours a day, seven days a week. With minimal maintenance requirements the customer subsequently benefits from extended machine uptime and maximum operational productivity thanks to their HPC KAESER compressor.

“The HPC KAESER range of compressors are state-of-the-art and the most energy efficient equipment money can buy,” said Terry Corringham, Area Sales Manager at Glaston. “Although not the cheapest in today’s market when benchmarked against competitors they will repay the initial investment with year-on-year running cost savings over the compressor’s life,” he added.

“Glaston delivered a first-class service with their knowledge and expertise,” said the customer. “We look forward to our current compressor providing a long and efficient life and look forward to working with Glaston for the foreseeable future,” they added.
