With over one hundred production sites throughout the world and a presence in almost every country, Atlas Copco are world leaders in industrial equipment and are very much, as Business Line Manager at Atlas Copco New Zealand Hussam Gabrial says, “the home of industrial ideas.”
Atlas Copco’s international outreach allows them to provide top-quality service to a huge number of industries, particularly those who use the wide range of compressed air solutions Atlas Copco provides. The pinnacle of the company’s compressed air technology is well represented by the G2-22 air compressors, which provide reliable performance, high energy efficiency, advanced monitoring and more.
Below are just five examples of the industries that can benefit from the G2-22 range of tank-mounted air compressors designed and manufactured by Atlas Copco New Zealand.
Food & Beverage
The packaging and preparation of food and beverage in the modern age require industrial amounts of compressed air to keep things clean and moving, tasks for which the G2-22 range of air compressors is ideally equipped to handle.
“Whether for sorting and ejecting, mixing, aerating substances, or inflating and stuffing products, compressed air for food and beverage applications must be absolutely clean and free of contamination. Only oil-free compressors such as the G2-22 range can guarantee absolute air purity, and eliminate any chance of air-based contamination,” Hussam says.
With decades of experience and full ISO certification, Atlas Copco’s customers within the food and beverage industry are in safe hands with the G2-22 range of air compressors.
From car manufacturing to panel beating, compressed air is a crucial component in many areas of the automotive industry around the world. Keeping the assembly lines moving and providing the required power to the utility and mechanical aspects of the creation and servicing of vehicles, high-quality compressed air such as that provided by Atlas Copco’s G2-22 range is indispensable to automotive based-businesses.
“Because we can deliver compressors with matching air treatment solutions, we can reduce your operating cost,” Hussam says.
“Our air treatment equipment, which is built-in to the G2-22 range of air compressors, is designed specifically to operate in most efficiently with our compressors, optimally using their waste heat and avoiding air losses for regeneration.”
The manufacturing and packaging of pharmaceutical products, such as medication, must be held to the highest standard to ensure no contaminates of any kind find their way into the finished product.
Compressed air is an invaluable part of this process, and the high standards of safety and cleanliness held by Atlas Copco’s G2-22 range of industrial air compressors provides peace of mind to their customers in the pharmaceutical industry.
“Oil-free air for pharmaceutical manufacturing must be qualified to certain standards to avoid contamination. We are the first compressor manufacturer to receive certifications for a new industry standard of air purity,” Hussam says.
“The G2-22 range is among the most energy efficient on the market, allowing you to save on energy consumption by analyzing, monitoring and optimizing your compressed air installation.”
Almost all forms of blasting require compressed air, particularly abrasive blasting, which propels the abrasives at a certain speed that the G2-22 range is more than capable of achieving.
“Depending on the media used and the orifice, dry air may be critical to continued reliability of the abrasive blasting system. Moisture in the air can cause the blast media to clog the orifice and cause sputtering,” Hussam says.
The G2-22 range are ideal for circumventing this, as the built-in dryers keep the air dry and the quality levels high.
While there are a wide range of specific business types that can benefit from Atlas Copco’s top-quality products and solutions, general industry is by far their biggest customer base, and as the home of industrial ideas, Atlas Copco is constantly finding new and innovative ways to provide top-of-the-line compressed air products to the industrial world.
“With the G2-22 range, industrial clients can rely on maximum uptime with short lead times and a strong and global aftermarket service network,” Hussam says.
Included in the design are materials such as stainless steel, and a robust design makes sure your compressed air system is operating at peak performance, even in the harshest conditions.
