Connecticut Sales Manager, Ross Orr, shows us step-by-step air leak repair instructions to make sure your compressed air system runs as efficiently as possible.
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.”
Business has been expanding in the New England region for Scales Industrial Technologies, to the point where more people are needed, as well as larger space to accommodate them.
So the company chose a talented, experienced new Sales Manager for their Massachusetts location…and soon after, moved the entire operation into a larger facility in Shrewsbury, MA.
“We are extremely excited to announce the hiring of Andre L. Narbonne as our Massachusettes operation’s sales manager” states Niff Ambrosino Scales’ Chief Operating Officer. Narbonne — a PE, CEM, and DOE-certified AIRMaster+ Specialist, as well as a proven sales professional — was the ideal choice to help Scales capitalize on numerous growth opportunities in the Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont markets. “Andre brings decades of sales acumen and industry knowledge to his new Sales Manager position,” says Niff Ambrosino, “He has a history of impressive successes wherever he’s worked, and strong communication and interpersonal skills to bring out the best of those on his team. We were very fortunate to acquire the services of someone with Andre’s qualifications as we take on this region’s exciting new challenges.”
A well-known phrase states “necessity is the mother of invention”, and history has proven its validity many times. So has Scales Industrial Technologies; compressor lubrication is merely one more example.
An acknowledged leader in providing complete industrial compressed air solutions, the company realized several years ago that the lubricants vital to dependable, cost-effective air compressor function varied enormously both in quality and price. Obviously, a remedy was needed.
Go into any hospital or healthcare facility in the US and ask a nurse if he or she has ever had a problem locating or utilizing a flowmeter, and watch the heads bob and eyes roll. That’s because in most facilities, flowmeters are moved room-to-room as needed. This often means having to search room by room to find one, and increasing the possibility of having them break from being dropped or ‘over-handled’.
That’s why there was so much excitement when Ohio Medical recently introduced its new tube-style integrated flowmeter with a patented integrated design and numerous benefits to patients and healthcare professionals alike.
So why is Scales Medical Technologies sharing in this excitement? “Scales is the distributor for the Ohio Medical integrated flow meter in NY, NJ, CT, MA and PA,” states Sales Manager Jay D’Agostino. For many reasons, we think it’s the flowmeter every hospital and healthcare facility should be using.”
As one of the world’s premier provider of leading-edge compressed air solutions, you’d expect Scales Industrial Technologies to carry a large inventory of top-quality parts. And you’re right, of course. But taking care of our customers’ needs, covering a diverse range of industries involves much more than having a part sitting somewhere on a shelf.
From its five spacious locations, Scales’ complete line of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) service and repair parts — and Aftermarket parts for customer service — are stored and retrieved with remarkable speed and accuracy thanks to a state-of-the-art computer inventory control system. Then the most dedicated and knowledgeable people in the business make sure every order is swiftly expedited, with most shipped within 24 hours of being received. In addition, with their in-house technical expertise, Scales is your one stop solution whenever an upgraded or site specific part is required to meet more severe operating conditions.
In the course of your life, chances are good that at some point you’ve heard the phrase “size matters”. Whether or not it’s true is not only subjective, but situation-specific as well. Except in the case of compressed air storage, in this arena it really does matter, and big is undeniably the superior choice.
While calculating the proper amount of compressed air storage for your specific operations can be an involved process, the benefits of having it are easy to see, from minimizing system pressure loss and enhancing compressor part-load performance, to stabilizing and balancing air pressure, to name just a few. Which is why, when you’re re-engineering a compressed air system or purchasing air receivers, it’s in your best interest not to be stingy. Continue reading
Adding to its capabilities as a global leader in providing cutting-edge compressed air solutions for a diverse range of markets, Scales Industrial Technologies is now also an exclusive distributor of MTA Chillers with integral free cooling from one of the world’s foremost manufacturers, MTA-USA.
