80° OF SEPARATION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Hi-Temp Dryer Solutions from Scales Air can handle the heat.

Reciprocating compressors find many applications in small machine shops, manufacturing and automotive.  They are highly efficient but the discharge compressed air temperature can be extremely high.

Which is where a high-inlet temperature refrigerated compressed air dryer from Scales comes into play.

“Standard dryers aren’t designed to handle high-inlet temperatures,” says Ross Orr, Sales Manager at Scales Industrial Technologies.  “Their design rating of 100°F inlet air temperature doesn’t begin to match the 180° or more common with reciprocating air compressor applications.  At Scales, we offer refrigerated compressed air dryers that are designed to do just that.”

DESIGN SOLUTION: THE CHILLER CHALLENGE

Coming up with a custom design solution drawing from a wide array of industrial technologies is a bit like solving a puzzle.  Manufacturing companies often need system design expertise and integration beyond the simple “quote and sell” approach to solve their unique puzzle.

“Here at Scales we have the capabilities to design a project from the bottom up,” says Alex Concepcion, Applications Engineer at Scales Industrial Technologies.

Concepcion relates a recent case wherein a manufacturer needed a chilled water system that didn’t rely on a series of individual chillers, but instead, one large chiller to accommodate their production needs.

PRETTY SLICK: OIL WATER SEPARATORS DELIVER ENVIRONMENTAL, ECONOMIC BENEFITS

When air is compressed and cooled, the water that was in the air condenses, and is discharged at the after-cooler, dryer, and filter drains.  Unless you run an oil-free compressor, this condensate may be contaminated with significant amounts of compressor oil…and in many places this condensate is considered “hazardous waste”. As such it cannot be discharged down the sewer drain…and certainly not to the ground (The result may be a soil contamination issue!)

Sure, you can pay a hazardous-waste company to haul away the contaminated condensation, but consider: During a typical East Coast summer, a 100-horsepower compressor can easily generate over 2 gallons of oil-contaminated condensate every hour. That’s going to add up. Continue reading

SCALES IS A LEADER IN CUSTOMIZING EQUIPMENT TO MEET SPECIFIC CUSTOMER NEEDS

Scales Industrial Technologies is well known for providing world-class compressed air systems. Scales’ customers also know that when a special need presents itself, they can count on the company to create a customized solution that effectively and cost-efficiently addresses their requirement.

One example of Scales’ customization capability involved a manufacturer of industrial filters with an ‘out-of-the-box’ problem. Their production plant was expanding and additional heavy-duty, positive displacement blowers were needed to handle the new growth. “Scales was able to step up and devise the ideal solution to meet their needs,” says Ray Lundrigan, Manager of Scales’ American Process Gas Compressor division.

While energy conservation was a major component of the decision-making process, even more important was the customer’s requirement of a short lead-time and to use specific positive displacement blower and motor manufacturers, which meet their plant’s standards. The original idea was to find a rebuilt package that met their particular requirements. “After reviewing the available options, we convinced the Continue reading

COMPRESSED AIR LEAKS: CAN ALL SYSTEMS CAPTURE THE SAVING?

It’s an automatic, almost involuntary response: there’s a leak, you fix it. But when you’re talking about repairing  compressed air leaks, it’s not like wrapping duct tape around a garden hose. Nothing spills on the floor. Depending on the leak location, there could be considerable time and expense involved in fixing it. But what is the payback on that? Knowing if the situation merits the necessary outlay of money and manpower can be quite the dilemma…that’s when a Scales Leak Study can be a valuable asset.

“At Scales, we pride ourselves on being able to deliver the expertise our clients need to operate at maximum efficiency,” says Sales Manager Robert Schwarz. “By having our compressed air systems specialists do a comprehensive Leak Study, we can tag existing leaks, quantify them, and provide determinations as to the proper course of action.”
