Scales Energy Services offers sequencers ranging from simple pressure based sequencers to the patented $mart Sequencer®, which will operate any multiple air compressor installation, regardless of compressor sizes or manufacturer as efficiently as possible. This sequencer helps save energy and enables compressed air system data to be stored on your PC or other mobile device. The Scales’ Deluxe Sequencer™ is more energy efficient than other sequencers because it eliminates cascaded pressure set points which usually result in operating pressures much higher than system requirements.
Our cutting edge fleet management and navigation system gives our service dispatcher a geographic view of our service truck locations including real time traffic allowing us to get to you when you need us, quickly and efficiently.
Companies that use vacuum applications would benefit more from using a true vacuum system rather than compressed air which consumes about 3x as much horsepower as you would if you used a vacuum screw. If you’re interested in saving money, let Scales review your application and confirm you’re using the right equipment. Call any one of our locations today www.scalesair.com/locations-a-directions

The air dryer is probably the most overlooked cooler in the system. At a minimum, a dirty condenser will cause water in the lines. At a maximum, it will cause dryer failure.
A lot of people are tempted to blow out the dirt with compressed air. This only moves the dust which will end up back in the condenser when the fan comes on. We recommend vacuuming the condenser. Whichever method you decide to use, be careful not to bend the fins and always make sure to check the drain trap.
On the air compressor, a dirty cooler can also cause a couple of things to happen if not cleaned regularly. The compressor will run hot and potentially shutdown on high temperatures. If left unresolved, you can have varnishing of the lubricant, bearing failure or worse, a fire.
If your compressor includes an aftercooler, the high inlet temperature that the dryer sees, would cause the dryer not to function properly.
Cleaning the dryer & compressor cooler would be done during your regular maintenance and should be checked during your weekly visual inspection.
