A construction materials manufacturer was experiencing poor compressed air quality, air compressor failures, excessive energy costs and extensive maintenance at one of its plants in Indiana. Due to the successful solutions that Air Technologies® had provided at other company-owned facilities, the customer reached out to Air Technologies® for help.
After conducting an air audit, Air Technologies® identified the need for a more intelligent, energy-efficient and reliable compressed air system, including new piping. Air Technologies® installed a complete DirectAIR® state-of-the-art compressed air facility on the manufacturer’s site, powered by five new Atlas Copco GA90 air compressors along with a regenerative polishing air dryer.
This solution required no capital equipment outlay on the customer’s part. With DirectAIR®, Air Technologies® owns, maintains, operates and monitors the compressed air system housed in its own facility on the customer’s site. Efficiency and reliability are guaranteed, and the manufacturer receives a monthly bill for use and consumption, similar to other utilities such as gas, electric and water.
After the system was up and running the manufacturer immediately began to experience a reliable supply of compressed air, and productivity increased because of the reduced production downtime. In addition, the customer estimated that they would save $41,000 a year in electric costs due to the energy-efficient system.

An Ohio paper and packaging company had worn-out and inefficient compressors that were leading to breakdown and downtime issues throughout the plant. The company contacted Air Technologies® for expert advice and an air audit.
After performing the audit and system evaluation, an Air Technologies® sales engineer recommended replacing the existing air compressors with two Atlas Copco GA75AP 100 HP fixed-speed air compressors, one Atlas Copco GA75VSDAP 100 HP variable-speed air compressor, an FX18 refrigerated air dryer, piping, and ManagAIR® automated controls.
ManagAIR® is a state-of-the-art computerized system developed by Air Technologies® that centrally monitors and controls the compressed air in a plant 24/7/365. ManagAIR® significantly improves efficiency and reliability while minimizing maintenance and downtime costs.
The new compressed air system bundled with ManagAIR® saved the paper and packaging company more than $13,500 in annual electric costs. In addition, the new equipment reduced breakdowns and eliminated downtime that were costing the company during its 24/7 operations.

A new DirectAIR® system from Air Technologies® helped a garage door manufacturer increase efficiency, reliability and receive a $25,000 energy rebate.
The garage door manufacturer, which specializes in residential and commercial garage door design, installation and repairs, was running four outdated air compressors and was using an undersized refrigerant dryer that wasn’t serving production goals.
The manufacturer requested assistance from Air Technologies®, which performed an air audit to assess the situation. After completing the audit, Air Technologies® confirmed that the compressors were unreliable and in need of replacement. DirectAIR® compressed air utility service was recommended.
Air Technologies® installed a state-of-the-art DirectAIR® compressed air facility at the manufacturer’s site, and the customer immediately began seeing energy cost savings. The manufacturer also eliminated maintenance and repair costs. Air Technologies® owns, maintains, operates and monitors the complete system, so efficiency and reliability are guaranteed. Because DirectAIR® is a utility service, the manufacturer was charged for only their consumption of compressed air and utility use — similar to gas, electric and water suppliers.
Since installing the DirectAIR® facility on the manufacturer’s site, the Air Technologies® team worked with AEP Energy to help the garage-door manufacturer secure an energy rebate of $25,000. In addition, because Air Technologies® was able to reduce the HP needed to run the plant by 100 HP, the company has cut its kilowatt hours usage by 13%.
