A fresh approach to compressed air

COMPAIR is re-defining the compressed air generation business in South Africa.  As a long-standing  industry partner in this sector (since 1927) CompAir is driving the focus towards the full compressed air system, rather than just looking at the supply and servicing of the compressor itself.

According to the Business Director for CompAir South Africa Marc Willmers, “The challenges and opportunities for the optimisation of energy generation today are completely different to those of even five years ago.  Rapidly rising energy costs, along with Forex and Capex challenges, have made the compressed air investment a strategic business decision that should no longer simply be done on “guesstimates” of how much air is needed, at what pressure or what quality of air is required.  These changed requirements have been matched by advances in technology and product offering.”

Recognising the above, CompAir has moved away from simply being a machinery and spares service provider to addressing the entire cost and value chain of compressed air.  CompAir can assist in the buying decision through leading-edge air auditing, and offers requirement consulting by trained and experienced sales engineers.  The customer is then able to implement the right size compressor (fixed or variable speed) and match it with appropriately sized dryer, receiver & filter downstream equipment.  CompAir offers specialised solutions to match specific industry requirements.  “The ability to supply equipment and expertise to generate nitrogen and recover heat energy from the compressed air system is an exciting development for CompAir, as well as for South African industry.”

Existing customers and installations are guaranteed an OEM quality service offering, which includes the standard features of 24.7 response by trained service technicians, proactive maintenance in support of a market-leading warranty programme.  In addition they have access to a hire fleet that can act as a back-up to existing equipment and value-add services such as air auditing, leak detection, machine optimisation and flexible service contracts.

Willmers added; “We are able to achieve the above through our direct route to market of offices and workshops throughout South Africa, as well as a growing family of authorised re-sellers and distributors in Sub-Saharan Africa.  We invite compressed air users to contact CompAir for a no-cost, no-obligation consultancy of their existing and prospective compressed air requirements.”

As an authority in compressed air solutions, CompAir understands that people buy from people and, for this reason, it is proud of the highly skilled and trained workforce that supports its initiatives in South African industry.  “Our customers rely on us to guide and assist them with their compressed air requirements from feasibility studies on new installations, input on equipment selection, installation and commissioning to servicing and “downstream” opportunities.  This would not be possible without the committed, skilled and experienced team that works in the South African business.”
