Moulded Foams, designer and manufacturer of cellular foam products to the Automotive, Construction and Packaging industries, produces everything from thermal flooring, dynamic automotive foam and EPS boxes for transporting fish from the docks to the buyer.
The company’s continuing growth has led to a move to new 65,000 sq. ft. premises and Thorite, distributor of compressed air and pneumatic products, was called in to supply and install a variety of advanced, energy efficient equipment.
The contract comprised the supply of a 90Kw variable speed HPC compressor, a 55Kw fixed speed HPC compressor with integral heat exchanger, an HPC energy saving refrigerant dryer, 5000 litre receiver and filtration, free standing heat exchanger, plus all necessary mechanical installation of pipework using 3″ galvanised tubing. Moulded Foam will also take out a 5 year service contract covering all the equipment.
Speaking of the installation David Davies, Moulded Foams’ Plant Manager said: “Thorite recommended the HPC machinery and everything is performing very well. The compressors drive 12 EPS moulding machines and I’m confident that by specifying the latest technology models we will soon be benefitting from significant energy and cost savings, particularly as the heat exchangers now enable us to harvest the hot air produced by the compressors and use it heat our product drying facility, with the added bonus of a reduced carbon footprint. Thorite will also undertake regular ongoing service for the installation, providing complete peace of mind.”
Full details of the HPC model range and many other leading manufacturers of pneumatic equipment can be found on the Thorite website or by contacting any of Thorite’s regional network of 10 Sales and Service Centres located throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, the West Midlands and North East.
