DirectAIR® system saves manufacturer $26,000 in energy costs

A new DirectAIR® system from Air Technologies® helped provide a manufacturer with a 24 percent increase in energy savings.

The manufacturing company located in Strasburg, Ohio, was operating on four small air compressors without central controls. The older fleet of machines was causing the company high maintenance costs and upwards of $112,000 in energy costs. Growing frustrated with the excessive costs needed to keep up with the existing compressors, the company started looking into a more cost-efficient option. That’s when Air Technologies® stepped in to help.

Air Technologies® replaced the manufacturer’s existing high-cost air compressors with a DirectAIR® state-of-the-art, self-contained compressed air facility, with Atlas Copco air compressors, on site. Because DirectAIR® is a utility service, Air Technologies® owns, operates and maintains the DirectAIR® facility. The manufacturer receives a monthly bill for air and utility use and enjoys a stress-free commitment.

DirectAIR® — a division of Air Technologies®, North America’s largest Atlas Copco distributor — is the pioneer of the fourth-utility concept. Since 1995, Air Technologies® has provided DirectAIR® customers with more than 6 million hours of operations without a single hour of lost production due to low pressure.

As a result of the DirectAIR® installation, the manufacturing company now saves more than $26,000 each year in energy costs alone, experiences 100% reliability, and enjoys a steady stream of high-quality compressed air, guaranteed.
