A cold call to Evolution E-Types following a move from Gateshead to new premises on Aycliffe Business Park led to Air Compressors and Blowers sealing the deal, worth just under £25,000 and ensuring many years of efficiency for their client.
Paul Sparke – Group Sales Director had this to say about the installation;
“The compressed air is used for fabrication, CNC machines, tool change, buffering, plasma machines – you name it. Even spraying the cars.”
“It was more labour-intensive to do than anything,” he added. “The design was based on what they had, what they were using, and just from experience I knew what size to supply but also give them a little bit of a buffer for the future.
“Their unit was slightly different to the others that we do, because normally the distribution pipework we do we would normally put on a ring main.
“So when we did the design we had to take into consideration the calculation and make sure the pipework was sized correctly taking into account distance and pressure drop, which we calculated out.
“So over the office-side units the pipework which they could have got away with is 25mm if it was on a ring, but we have actually put 40mm in there for any defects or pressure drop, or any expansion plans. Link to news article
