Huge spare parts savings for an Atlas Copco MD1300 VSD Customer

Huge spare parts savings for an Atlas Copco MD1300 VSD Customer

Recently one of our customers that employs Atlas Copco MD dryers on plant experienced a fault that was traced to the injector nozzle installed inside the MD drum (see the image below for reference ) The MD air dryer performance had been falling steadily by observing decreasing dewpoint. The actual fault was a damaged injector nozzle from what appears to have been heavy handed internal service carrying out a 8000 hour inspection in the past.

The customer uses the MD dryer at 7 bar pressure so a standard nozzle was required. The dryer size is an MD1300VSD which uses part number 1617 5064 02 – MD1300 W VSDthe new OEM cost is £1,500 pounds plus installation labour for this nozzle with a rather longer delivery than was acceptable to the customer. Considerations where even given to renting a hired in desiccant dryer to cover the factory which would have added a huge repair cost to this problem. Read more on this report

NEWS Ztechnique New and Improved Workshops 2018

Ztechnique have recently improved our UK production facility with expansion into our new purpose built St Helens based workshops.

The new workshop developments will enable us to increase our production capability with the addition of two shift option in place.

"Our production has been steadily increasing in 2017 to the point where safety at work was becoming an issue with so many staff working under pressure in a small workshop. The new larger workshop has vastly improved the flow of the production. The addition of our second rotor cutter and 3D printing facility will enable our manufacturing systems to be even more streamlined than previously" said Mark Whalley BDM

With a great start to 2018 we expect our Ztechnique element orders to increase with the inclusion of several new Worldwide distributors.

In 2015 we attracted a new Distributor in North Carolina and Texas states Fluid Flow headed by the charismatic and driven Drew Schwartz CEO .

Drew Schwartz came over to the UK in 2015 to meet with our Ztechnique team and look over our Ztechnique air end facility with his team Ed Borkey, Hunter Neblett and Scott Mitchell.

We must have impressed the guys just as much as we where impressed with Fluid Flow's vision for aftermarket oil free parts growth since we quickly agreed a territory deal and both signed on the dotted line for Fluid Flow to become our second North America Ztechnique distributor .

Sales have been healthy for Fluid Flow borne out by a recent visit from Mark Whalley BDM of Airtec Filtration Ltd in June 2016 who toured the facility and discussed sales opportunities with the FF team.

" Great things are happening right now for Fluid Flow with sales reports showing a healthy take up of our Ztechnique parts to a blue chip list of Fluid Flows customers.

Early indications are that the combination of available off the shelf key parts and enthusiasm to build great customer relationships is paying off with several Z overhauls underway and more in the pipeline for 2016/17 period .

BOGE HST  June 1st 2016 BOGE Factory Visit

BOGE HST June 1st 2016 BOGE Factory Visit

Having just returned from a fantastic visit to the BOGE Factory in Germany to witness the first customers enjoying the fantastic benefits of the new BOGE HST 220 High Speed Turbo compressor

"The existing German BOGE HST customers where very open about the last 12 months experience with the HST compressor and the message that came across loud and clear was one of extremely enthusiastic customers that are not missing the oil that a traditional oil free screw or turbo compressor requires!!
Energy efficiency compared to the customer running an older Atlas Copco ZR5 was significantly up with 30% lower energy costs compared to prolonged load unload running of the ZR5 (based on customer data)
With lifetime ownership costs significantly lower than a dry screw and no planned overhaul period (or oils or oil filters) the future looks bright for this particular textile manufacturer lowering his compressed air ownership costs over 5 years and beyond."

What a great March for progress in our company and April is looking fantastic for our highest ever achievements in gaining new service contracts in the plastics, can and food industry with 3 new oil free customers shifting from the OEM to our company for preventative and Assured Air service agreements

New customers are hard to find and at least one of our new customers expressed that after 21 years with the OEM it was a difficult decision to switch allegiance but ultimately a better one for the business based on a more attractive offer from Air Hire lowering service costs significantly whilst increasing reliability and longevity of its existing compressors with Ztechnique products..

With this particular customer we have several other worldwide service agreements and supply of critical parts in Asia, Europe USA and Russia, truly a global partner for our business.

Listening closely to the customers' needs is where we score time and time again and you don't need additions like GSM Devices like Smart Link to do that!! You just have to be diligent in service and listen to your customer !!."

Indonesia Business New Customers

Indonesia Business New Customers

Our recent visit to Indonesia has developed into a new distributor and some great oil free Z and MD customers.

Our Business Development Director pictured here visited a number of large oil free Atlas Copco oil free Z compressor installations and listened to each plant manager's needs and issues with the compressors and dryers.

Valuable information indeed that subsequently has led to initiatives for our master distributors to offer great deals to these customers resulting in several Ztechnique new and refurbished element orders.

Visiting Jakarta, Sumatra, East, West Java Mark found the Indonesian people extremely welcoming and interested in reducing costs without compromise on quality.

"What a fantastic trip this was and probably the most interesting of my South East Asia trip as we got to meet some wild life in the Sumatra area of the country out in the jungle areas. Many of the plants we visited are self-sufficient when it comes to plant maintenance relying on internal skill sets fitting air ends and routine service parts. Our offer of Z training and support was well received by the various plant managers. It's the least we can do if we receive large parts orders !!"

ATLAS MACHINE  and Z TECHNIQUE ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN PARTNERSHIP…Companies Collaborate to Provide Atlas Copco non-OEM element solutions

ATLAS MACHINE and Z TECHNIQUE ANNOUNCE NORTH AMERICAN PARTNERSHIP…Companies Collaborate to Provide Atlas Copco non-OEM element solutions

Louisville, Kentucky and St Helens Merseyside, United Kingdom Atlas Machine and Supply, Inc. and Z Technique announced today a partnership to provide non-OEM compressor elements and aftermarket spare parts to North American industries relying on oil-free, rotary screw air systems in their manufacturing process. The collaboration also establishes Atlas Machine and Supply as Z Technique’s Master Distributor for all non-OEM parts and products, including high and low pressure elements for oil-free, rotary screw air compressors.

The partnership provides industries that rely on oil-free compressors with a cost-saving alternative to purchasing replacement oil-free parts, including oil-free elements, through original equipment manufacturers (OEM). Additional savings can be expected from quicker response time and having stock in the United States.

Atlas Machine established as National Distribution Center



In addition to focusing on providing non-OEM replacement elements, Atlas Machine and Supply has been named as the company’s national Master Distributor, and as such is stocking a full line of oil-free compressor parts frequently needed by industries in the U.S. to keep their oil-free compressors operational.

“Our ultimate goal with any partnership is to drive down the cost of your oil free air,” said Mark Whalley, Business Development Director at Z Technique. “Atlas Machine and Supply’s current compressed air capabilities, partnered with our oil-free product offering and expertise specifically with the ‘Z’ and ‘MD’ compressed air equipment, make this merger a great option for any North American customer.”

For more information about the Z Technique non-OEM elements and other related oil-free parts and services being provided through Atlas Machine and Supply, email oilfree@atlasmachine.com or call U.S. toll-free 1-855-GO ATLAS.

Note: Atlas Machine and Supply, Inc. is an independent supplier of compressor replacement parts and is not affiliated with Atlas Copco.

Many customer who are disillusioned with the OEM service & prices expressed a keen interest in Ztechnique New elements with notably the benefits Ztechnique parts provided , one way shipping , element performance figures , extended warranty (5 yrs) and quick efficient service from our country partners.

Following on from the first Ztechnique overhaul we have swiftly won yet another two ZR overhauls in quick succession !

Well done guys and ladies a great effort so far and more to come.

InBev Brewing Preston Water Cooling Solution

InBev Brewing Preston Water Cooling Solution

Air Hire recently designed a water cooling solution for InBev Brewing in Preston to enable clean water to circulate an Atlas Copco ZR132VSD with cooling water problems.

The water pipes (alloy) and coolers where constantly fouling due to poor site water cooling and a solution was agreed in the form of a closed circuit cooler close to the problem area. This enabled InBev to still use its existing site cooling water for primary cooling , but also enabled the compressor to have clean water flowing around its system.

"Often the solution is staring you in the face and has much less impact than changing out the primary cooling system at great cost. InBev worked with us to design a small low cost system aimed at cleaning up the water around this specific compressor model that was suffering alloy water pipe corrosion and oil cooler replacement after only one year in service.

Cooling system Solutions

Cooling system Solutions

We have recently built a closed loop heat exchanger system for a large International client of ours in Egypt.

The water quality circulating the Atlas Copco Oil Free Z compressors and MD dryers was causing contamination of the compressor and dryer cooling system resulting in big bills for cleaning and replacing coolers on the customers equipment.

Air Hire provided a solution to clean up the water system around the compressors and factory critical equipment.

The customer is still able to use his original cooling system whilst enjoying a clean water system around his critical plant resulting in huge savings on cooler cleaning and replacements

Just another innovative cooling system design from Air Hire...
