We get it, buying an air compressor is a big financial decision. And now we are suggesting that you need two air compressors, not just one. Ask yourself one question- Can your business still run if your air compressor goes down?

Itโ€™s no secret โ€“ air compressors are excellent sources of energy. Not only do they power essential manufacturing elements and applications, but the heat generated as a result of the compressed air processes can be used as a byproduct that offsets other energy costs. However, thereโ€™s another form of energy that is also a consequence of the air compression process โ€“ sound.

Most of the products that you see in daily life are using vacuum, and like compressed air, most businesses both world-wide and locally rely on it throughout their day-to-day functions. Our customers want a reliable process that creates lasting results in a way that is economically, environmentally, and socially responsible.

For many businesses, preserving energy and becoming more sustainable have become top priorities. That not only saves them money but also makes them more competitive in the future, when demand for โ€œgreenโ€ products and services will only increase. Not just because governments mandate greater sustainability but also because you, our customers expect it. Here, we talk to our experienced Sales Engineer, Romain, who has a strong background in helping our partners with energy efficient compressed air options to get the most out of their business.

Even when designing a system for supplying production with compressed air or vacuum, oxygen, nitrogen or other gases, one thing is clear: it will not work without maintenance. Compressed air filters and compressor lubricants have to be changed regularly, wear parts have to be replaced so that the system runs reliably and safely for many years. Between 5 and 10 percent of the total investment amount has to be calculated for the maintenance costs each year. Here we discuss the advantages of service agreements with Sunil, our Service specialised Sales Engineer for Ash Air.
