Remote Online Monitoring by Air Technologies®
With our exclusive ManagAIR® hardware and software, we are in continuous contact with the DirectAIR® site. This enables us to greatly improve the reliability of the system by having ManagAIR® inform us of problem areas before they become critical—a predictive maintenance approach that significantly improves reliability.
Superior Energy Efficiency
We equip our DirectAIR® facilities with the most energy efficient equipment and controls available today to provide significant energy savings over your current system. Typical energy savings range between 25-50%.
Comprehensive Preventive Maintenance
The entire concept of DirectAIR® revolves around delivering 100% reliable compressed air systems. This is accomplished by first installing the most dependable equipment available, then providing the highest level of preventive maintenance and continuously monitoring the equipment through our exclusive ManagAIR® system.
As a DirectAIR® customer, you only need to provide the necessary land and utility hook ups. Then Air Technologies® supplies, installs, operates, and maintains your new air compressor system. A monthly fee is charged based on the customer’s compressed air consumption, with billing similar to what a manufacturer gets from their electrical power supplier.
Think of what your company can do with the capital dollars you won’t be spending on air compressors!
DirectAIR® Vs. Leasing
DirectAIR® includes all system components and design from the building to the discharge pipe. All compressors, cooling systems, controls, monitors, motors, starters, filters, dryers, interconnecting piping, auto drains, fans, buildings, lighting, and more are included in our scope. If one of these components affects another component, it is our responsibility. What happens in a lease scenario when your cooling system causes a problem with a leased compressor or dryer? Who is responsible for the repair? With DirectAIR®, all costs are included.
Testimonial: Flowserve Corporation
“We have consistently had clean, dry air since DirectAIR® was installed. We have no fear of lines freezing up in the winter or having to drain gallons of water from the air lines in the summer like before. I am certain that our production machinery and tool reliability has significantly increased. With DirectAIR®, I can safely say that we no longer worry about our plant air. Thanks again for the great service and what I expect to be a great partnership between our two companies.”
