Sustainability for our customers - an application story

Ash Air have, for a number of years, maintained the compressed air systems for a customer operating within the dairy industry.

This customer had historically used liquid nitrogen within their processes, and found themselves in the unfortunate position, when renegotiating their LIN contract renewal with their supplier, that LIN pricing was increasing 2.5 times, as well as further uncertainty that their volume requirements could even be met going forward. They were left with 60 days to find an alternate solution.

Ash Air were tasked to size a suitable on-site nitrogen generation system, allowing them independence from third party supply, and an overall saving to their production costs.

Due to the urgency of the project, a Pneumatech PSA unit was air freighted from Europe.

 Local engineering work immediately began on a 40’ high cube shipping container to house the new standalone system, including ventilation, ducting and AIRnet pipework.

An ALUP IVR compressor, dryer and ancillary equipment were selected to accompany the nitrogen generator and ensure optimum performance, reliability and energy savings.

Installation and commissioning of the containerized solution was achieved 48 days from initial project commencement, resulting in the customer avoiding having to sign the exorbitant new LIN contract.

The net result was a ROI of less than 7 months for the customer, independence from third party supply with full control of their production capacity, reduced environmental impact of truck deliveries of LIN, an energy efficient solution and an overall saving to their production costs.
