PLANT AIR – OIL FREE CENTACS

The extensive use of compressed air in industry is second only to the use of water.  This air is used for tools, forges, hoists, conveyors, instruments and a host of other uses in the 100-125 PSIG range.  Needless to say, the loss of a plant’s compressed air supply can put a manufacturing facility completely out of production.  This is where the AirNow Fleet of Oi-Free high capacity rental compressors takes over. AirNow only rents the inherently oil-free Ingersoll-Rand CENTAC centrifugal plant air compressors, sizes ranging from 1,800 to over 21,000 CFM. We can normally have the equipment on the way within 24 hours of a call.  Our skid mounted units require only power hook-up, cooling water, a small amount of control air to start, and a discharge line to carry the compressed air to the plant system.

For example, a large Midwest foundry experienced a major explosion in their plant air system severely damaging the compressor house and shutting down the foundry.  The AirNow Compressor Fleet received the call at 4 p.m. for five (5) C-25’s.  The first two compressors arrived the next day.  Twenty-four hours after the call all five Centacs were on site and one was running!  Of course, AirNow cannot always promise this rapid service, but it is a good example of the effort we put into serving our customers’ needs in times of emergency. 

AirNow Compression Services has supplied plant air to refineries, glass plants, automobile assembly plants, appliance manufacturers and electric utilities just to name a few.
