HPC KAESER compressor system boosts leading European packaging company’s efficiency

Glaston has implemented a new state-of-the-art HPC compressor system for one of Europe’s premier packaging companies. After being approached by their Burnley branch, Glaston helped oversee a significant upgrade of existing compressor equipment to help meet their ever-increasing production demands.

What the customer needed

A leading manufacturer of high-performance food packaging was in the market for new compressed air equipment to replace existing compressors that had become inefficient. As the customer operates in a highly competitive and high turnover marketplace, they required a smooth and efficient operation of plant machinery on a day-to-day basis to meet their ever-increasing production demands.

What Glaston did

As per Glaston’s recommendation, the customer’s two existing compressors were promptly replaced with the latest variable speed compressor technology from HPC KAESER. HPC KAESER compressors are known industry-wide for their energy-efficiency, reliability and resilience. By implementing these variable speed compressors into the customer’s production processes they will repay their initial investment with year-on-year running cost savings over the compressors life cycle.

Glaston selected the CSDX 175 SFC compressor model for the customer as this delivers more compressed air for less power consumption. This model also includes three key components to help keep costs down for the customer. The flow-optimised SIGMA PROFILE rotors and the PC-based SIGMA CONTROL 2 compressor controller enable free air delivery and compressed air demands to be precisely matched and met. While the inclusion of super-premium IE5 motors will help to ensure maximum air and energy efficiency for this HPC KAESER compressor.

What happened as a result

The customer now benefits from an upgraded and more efficient compressed air supply thanks to the new HPC KAESER compressor system. This will help to save significant running costs as well as reducing the customer’s carbon footprint and, as an additional benefit, utilising the exhaust will keep the factory warm during the winter months and save on gas heating costs. With state-of-the-art variable speed compressors matching the increased production demands, the customer has now gained a valuable partner for the foreseeable future in Glaston.
