Air Technologies® helps industrial applied coatings shop save $5,000 annually—plus a $14,800 energy rebate

Air Technologies® helped a Canton, Ohio, industrial applied coatings shop save $5,000 in energy costs annually and secure a $14,800 energy efficiency rebate.

SRT Sales & Service, LLC is committed to applying quality coatings to cryogenic tanks, structural steel, mining fans, spiral conveyers, light poles and pipes. The air-end on its 150 HP rotary screw compressor needed a complete overhaul. It no longer supplied a continuous air flow and regularly needed maintenance. SRT sought out Air Technologies® to assess the situation and conduct a cost analysis of different rotary screw air compressors to determine the best replacement option.

After a careful analysis, Air Technologies® experts concluded that Atlas Copco’s GA 110 VSD (150 HP) had a superior screw element that would save SRT thousands of dollars in the long run, approximately $5,000 in energy costs per year. With its variable speed drive (VSD) technology, the compressed air system has a long, low-maintenance lifecycle at the lowest operating cost by automatically adjusting the air supply to the user’s air demand.

After installation of the new air compressor, SRT has enjoyed a steady air flow with minimum vibrations and maintenance. The shop has also become eligible to receive a $14,800 energy efficiency rebate—a testament to the compressor’s state-of-the-art compression elements and efficiency.
