Thorite compressor adds performance at Hanson Springs
World-leading spring manufacturer Hanson Springs Ltd have recently expanded their specialist spring powder coating facility at their Rochdale production centre and called on Thorite to provide increased compressed air capacity.
As well as simply providing more compressed air overall Thorite was asked to ensure that their selected pneumatic equipment would also remove any trace of water from the system, to satisfy the nature of the powder coating process's requirement for completely dry air.
Thorite’s expert Technical Application Team proposed the installation of an additional HPC ASD 60 compressor to provide a reliable and energy-efficient increased air supply, while a pair of Parker Hiross refrigerant dryers, also developed to provide the highest levels of energy efficiency, were proposed to remove any traces of moisture. A receiver and additional modern, highly efficient smooth bore aluminium pipework completed the solution.
The equipment has now been installed and has been welcomed by Dan Pilling, Hanson Springs’ Project Manager who said: “The equipment performs very well and really suits our needs. We manufacture springs which are trusted by the biggest names in the Flow Control, Oil & Gas, Nuclear, Rail and Power Generation industries in a wide range of exotic steels and alloys.
“The majority of our powder coated springs are used by these industries in some form of safety valves, so there can be no compromise on quality. I've personally dealt with Thorite for the last 25 years and have the highest regard for their unique combination of specialist knowledge, levels of service and product choice.”
Full details of the HPC compressor range, Parker Hiross refrigerant dryers and the thousands of other leading pneumatic products available as part of the company’s £multimillion product stocks are available from the Thorite website, by contacting the Technical Application Team on Freephone 0800 142 2446 or by visiting any of Thorite’s 10 regional Sales & Service Centres located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, the West Midlands and the North East.
