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 engineering manager to have Scales build a custom package making use of rebuilt blowers, which met their stringent specifications” continues Lundrigan. “The packages were also fitted with the necessary accessories, filters, and silencers needed to provide many years of dependable service. Scales’ capabilities and experience put all the pieces together, delivering a custom solution that meets their new requirements in less than four weeks. And our customer was elated with our ability to accomplish it all on budget!”
Another case required Scales Medical Technologies (SMT) to help a contractor who had secured an order for a medical center project in New York.
“The engineer had specified a medical vacuum package to be installed above an air handler in an HVAC room to save space,” Jay D’Agostino, SMT General Manager recalls. “The air handler was approximately three feet high, and the vacuum system had to be mounted above it. There was talk about building a custom stand and hanging it off of steel ceiling joists. After giving it some thought, we developed drawings, which illustrated our idea. The equipment manufacturer approved our design and agreed to supply a custom package that met the end-user’s limited installation envelope.
Following a few additional revisions, the unit was built, at no additional charge, and installed without a single glitch. “I’m happy to say everything worked out perfectly, and the unit is currently up and running precisely as the medical center desired.”
