Glaston delivers cost savings to Arnold Magnetic Technologies

13 April, 2017

Arnold Magnetic Technologies is a global manufacturer of high performance magnets, precision magnetic assemblies and thin metals. Arnold has thousands of customers in markets from consumer, industrial, medical, aerospace, and telecommunications. Arnold’s magnets, metals and systems are used in high-efficiency motors, batteries, and solar panels, and on commercial aircraft.

Glaston Compressor Services Ltd is a specialist in air compressor intelligent control, air compressor maintenance, nitrogen generators and energy management systems. With a comprehensive portfolio of energy efficient products, Glaston works within a diverse range of industries.

Steve Roberts, production development engineer at Arnold Magnetic, contacted Glaston as the company as experiencing failures to its air flow. The efficiency engineer at Glaston ran a thermal mass flow metering exercise to assess how efficiently Arnold’s current air compressor was performing. A flowmeter is connected to the airline to see how economical the compressor is. This service provided by Glaston offers guaranteed findings as it works out the cost to run a compressor for a year, based on compressor size, electricity consumed and cost of purchase.

Glaston recommended replacing the existing compressor with a Kaeser HPC ASD-60 SFC variable speed unit. Glaston states that this compressor pushes the boundaries of compressed air efficiency as it delivers more compressed air for less power consumption, while combining ease of use and maintenance with exceptional versatility and an environmentally responsible design. The IE3 motor is highly efficient and is eligible for 100% ECA in year 1. It also comes with a five-year warranty.

Roberts commented: “Glaston delivered a first-class service. Their knowledge and expertise has saved us money. Our running costs have been reduced from £6.5k a year to £4.5k. We also have invested in a larger compressor which allows for future expansion. We look forward to our new compressor providing a long and efficient life.”
