Integrated Air Solutions, as a foremost supplier of world-renowned ELGi electric screw compressors, has been delivering quality air solutions to pharmaceutical, mining, food and beverage, agriculture and oil and gas sectors across Southern Africa, for the past 4 years.
The recent signing of a partnership agreement with leading North American air compressor manufacturer, FS-Elliott, has extended Integrated Air Solutions’ capabilities to include the supply of spare parts, service and plant upgrades to the local existing installed base of FS-Elliott centrifugal oil-free compressors.
Pennsylvania-based FS-Elliott is a global leader in the field of centrifugal air compressors with their Polaris® industrial compressed air range offering reliable flow of oil-free air to ISO 8573-1 Class 0 from 900 cfm to 12,000 cfm, and their groundbreaking PAP PLUS engineered series flow capabilities of up to 24,500 cfm.
“We identified promising growth potential in Southern Africa for our range of integrally geared centrifugal compressors and see Integrated Air Solutions, with their substantial facility in Jet Park, Boksburg, supported by qualified technicians and sales staff, as a good fit to support their current business interests and future growth in the region,” says FS-Elliott‘s Channel Partner Manager, Kevin Miller.
FS-Elliott offers significant plant upgrades aimed at lowering the operational cost of compressed air. Energy-saving solutions such as compressor re-rate, inlet guide vane conversions and control system refits allow customers to maximise their equipment’s efficiency, resulting in immediate savings and a fast return on investment given today’s high energy input costs.
Advantages of centrifugal compressors include:
- Certified ISO 8573-1 Class 0 oil-free air for purity that meets exacting standards.
- Low maintenance with no wearing parts that require regular change-out, eliminating the need for periodic and expensive airend replacement.
- Low-to-no vibration without any special foundation required.
- Superior control through a variety of Regulus® controller system options.
- Excellent reliability over extended periods with minimal maintenance.
- Most efficient (energy saving) mainstream compressed air technology
“We are excited to be partnering with Integrated Air Solutions who has over 30 years of centrifugal air compressor knowledge,” notes Kevin. “We hope to save South Africa kilowatt hours of energy with our best-in-class efficient centrifugal air compressors.”
Trevor Volker, General Manager, Integrated Air Solutions, wraps up: “Through this new partnership, which combines quality product solutions from FS-Elliott with our local experience and compressor technology know-how, we will be able to add value to longstanding FS-Elliott customers. It will also gain us a firm foothold in the centrifugal air compressor space by unlocking new market potential.”
