438,441,439,442MARK MSA full feature silenced screw compressors are ideal for medium to large workshop compressed air with a requirement for a continuous supply of clean, dry air such as car dealerships and vehicle maintenance workshops.  S & L Engineering has supplied and installed many of these units for their customers, the major benefits being as follows:

  • Ease of transportation and installation.  These units are compact, pre-assembled and ready for use and are ideal for both Metro and Country installations, where space is limited or close proximity to the work site is required.
  • Complete compressed air generation and treatment system, with dryer and filtration included in one space efficient package.
  • Silent running – vibration-free operation and efficient cooling air flow has reduced noise emissions for these units to 63-65 dB(A)
  • Economical operation – The ES3000 electronic regulator makes it possible to:
  • Manage all running operations
  • Perform machine control and regulation
  • Monitor irregularities
  • Stop the compressor in the event of an emergency
  • View the data on the machine’s maintenance program

The result being, REDUCED ENERGY COST, REDUCED ENERGY CONSUMPTION

 Compressed Air SystemWirtgen Australia – Premium Compressed Air System

WIRTGEN AUSTRALIA is a market leader in the manufacture and supply of profiling machines to mining and civil companies. S & L Engineering won the tender to supply and install a complete compressed air system for their new facility in Apac Way, South Guildford, Western Australia, which reached practical completion in September 2014.

The system consisted of:

  • 2 x MARK RMD75KW VARIABLE SPEED DRIVEN DRY SCREW COMPRESSORS
  • 1 X 4000L AIR RECEIVER
  • STAINLESS STEEL 100MM TIG WELDED PIPEWORK
  • FILTRATION DOWN TO RES OIL 0.005mg/m3
  • HOT AIR DUCTING THROUGH THE ROOF
  • AN OILY WATER SEPARATOR FOR TREATMENT OF CONDENSATE REMOVED FROM THE COMPRESSED AIR SYSTEM

The RMD VSD screw compressor is equipped with the latest ES4000 ADVANCE CONTROLLER, enabling highly efficient operation and monitoring of components, resulting in minimum power usage and reduced maintenance costs.

All equipment, other than the ducting system, was preassembled in our workshop, then disassembled and installed in the plant room situated on the 4th floor of the facility. The installation and commissioning of the system was completed and operational within 5 working days.

All trades and technical support required for this project were sourced from within the S & L team.

Screw Compressor Installation

Screw Compressor Installationc

S & L Engineering was engaged in 2009 to help solve recurrent compressor failures and noise issues, on Metro based service station sites with automated car wash facilities.  The following problems had been encountered:

  • Any major air leak occurring within the plant on site had the affect of causing the existing piston compressors to run constantly to keep up with the demand for air. This frequently caused overheating and substantial mechanical damage to the compressor, with the resulting increase in maintenance and/or capital costs.
  • Noise issues on these sites also had become an issue, as several were located adjacent to residential areas and complaints had been made.

To solve these issues it was proposed a MARK Mini MSM (5.5kW) silenced screw compressor installation. These units are competitively priced and offer the following benefits:

  • With the MARK Mini MSM any rise in temperature due to increased workload is detected by an internal sensor and the compressor shuts down before damage can occur.
  • The Mini MSM runs at a very quiet 61dB(A); almost as low as a household appliance.  This is substantially quieter than the piston compressors that they replaced, lower even than the equivalent silenced models.

In the first year following installation of the MSM Mini Screws on larger car wash sites the feedback has been very satisfactory , with no further noise complaints being received and any air leaks occurring being repaired without damage to capital equipment.

Westral Home Improvements is a leading Western Australian manufacturer of blinds, security products, awnings, shutters and patios.  They manufacture all their own products in purpose built factories, but in mid 2009, owing to increasing breakdowns and inefficiencies, they began looking at upgrading their existing compressed air system. At the time compressed air was provided to the manufacturing sites by two separately installed compressed air systems and Westral’s Operation Manager engaged S & L Engineering to complete a compressed air audit and submit advice on how the systems could be improved and upgraded.

The original installation consisted of 2 x 18kW aging Champion fixed speed air compressors, running 3 factories.  Pipe work within the factories was interconnected and isolated by valving. Power supply in the two main factories had become an issue with the installation of new manufacturing machinery, but the cost to upgrade the power was found to be economically unviable.

S & L Engineering identified a new location for the compressor installation in their 3rd factory, which was used mainly for storage and light manufacturing and had ample power available, thus eliminating the power issues in the main factories. Finally it was proposed we fit a VSD (inverter –driven) 22kW MARK silenced screw compressor with upgraded dryer and filtration system. This would supply adequate compressed air to all three factories with an anticipated saving of up to 25% in energy costs, with one of the existing compressors being retained as back-up only.

The new system has been in operation for 12 months with no problems encountered. Westral’s Operations Manager has commented that the savings in power and ongoing maintenance costs have been achieved, together with the added bonus of reduced noise levels within their operations.  The savings introduced by the installation of the inverter unit should cover the capital outlay within 5 years and is in keeping with the anticipated need to comply with more stringent environmental standards.

Air Compressor Hire

The uses of compressed air are many and this one was one of the fun for the family uses. In January 2010, S & L Engineering was asked to supply ‘AIR compressor hire,  compressed air installation and piping’ for the ‘Dinosaurs Alive’ exhibition at the West Australian Museum, our service technicians discovered its application can also be lots of fun.

MARK inverter screw compressors brought to life a truly impressive display of robotic dinosaurs, which took visitors along the 165 million year journey of the ‘Age of Dinosaurs’.

We hope to see them return to Perth again soon.

DIGITAL TYRE INFLATION EQUIPMENT

S & L Engineering has been involved with servicing the tyre industry for over 20 years and has developed an in depth understanding of the industries compressed air requirements.  Achieving optimum air quality and constant pressure is a priority for the industry and we have been involved in assisting a major Western Australian retail dealership by supplying, installing and servicing products which represent the leading edge in tyre inflation technology:

AIRTEC HIGH FLOW DIGITAL TYRE INFLATION EQUIPMENT

Airtec High-Flow Digital Tyre Inflators have been installed in tyre fitting bays with high air usage (for example for truck tyre inflation) and bring the following benefits to the tyre dealer and end user:

  • Accurate and reliable inflation pressure (Optimum tyre inflation improves tyre wear and fuel economy)
  • Easy and safe to use
  • Heavy duty construction
  • Nitrogen compatible
  • Stock of replacement parts readily available

MARK SILENCED ROTARY SCREW COMPRESSORS WITH REFRIGERATED DRYER AND FILTRATION

MARK screw compressor packages have been installed in high air usage sites to ensure a supply of clean dry air to the tyre inflation sector.  They provide the following advantages:

  • Intelligent ES3000 electronic management system with comprehensive information display
  • Fully silenced to 64dB(A)
  • The MDX Dryer removes condensate from the compressed air, protecting air tools and tyre machines and providing the additional bonus of not allowing any moisture into tyres, reducing corrosion in steel and alloy rims
  • MARK pre and after line filters reduce residual oils in the air supply down to 0.01 mg/m3 protecting both the machinery and the product quality

By operating with leading products and technologies our customers have placed themselves at the head of their field and are enjoying, with their customers, the long term benefits and savings.
