Air-Tech and IFPEX roll-call continues.

Air-Tech 2012 - the compressed air, vacuum, and generation industry's event - and the International Fluid Power Exhibition (IFPEX 2012) will both be returning to their NEC home confident of their unique position within their respective sectors.

Latest signatories to these events include a number of leading industry names, among them: Gardner Denver, Abdex, Herose, AEP and I.M.M Hydraulics (UK) Ltd.

At Air-Tech 2012, compressor manufacturer Gardner Denver will be showcasing technologies from its leading compressor brands over four separate stands, including the launch of its brand new 22 to 30 kW range of CompAir variable speed compressors - the first time the new models will be exhibited in the UK.

Visitors to the show can view products from the company's CompAir, Hydrovane and Reavell brands, where experts will be on hand to advise on the various equipment options available. CompAir products are exhibited on two stands. The first is dedicated to lubricated-screw technologies and will include the company's brand new variable-speed range. The second stand will be focused entirely on the company's oil-free product offering and will include the water-lubricated DH range of compressors and the Quantima unit.

Gardner Denver will also be exhibiting models from its Hydrovane range. Benefitting from proven rotary vane compression technology, products in this range provide a dry compressed air supply with minimal energy costs. In addition, the Reavell stand will focus on some of the latest solutions for manufacturers and processors requiring a quality and dependable source of high-pressure air.

Another recent Air-Tech signatory is Herose. The company works together with a group of leading manufacturers globally as well as Herose GmbH to compile a comprehensive range of valves for cryogenics, LNG and general industry applications. Whether being used on vessel, plant, trailer or compressors, Herose reports that safety and quality are always its paramount concern. The company's range includes safety valves, cryogenic valves, industrial valves, globe valves, gate valves, check valves, pressure regulating valves, ball valves, control valves and DP gauges.

At next year's Air-Tech, AEP will be exhibiting its range of aluminium pipework. In addition to its established Infinity range, the company will also be showing its new Eco range of pipework, which is suitable for oil, H2O, nitrogen and also compressed air at high pressure.

On its stand at IFPEX, Abdex - the specialist manufacturer and distributor of high- and low-pressure hose assemblies - will be promoting the Uniflex range of crimping machines, plus workshop machines and production machinery. The company will also promote its offering of a free BFPA 'Foundation Course in Working Safely with Hydraulic Hose and Connectors' to Uniflex customers. Abdex managing director Oliver Bain explained that the company is keen to ensure customers not only get the best from their Uniflex machine but also have the best knowledge related to hose best practice and safety at their disposal.

Also at IFPEX 2012, I.M.M. Hydraulics (UK) Ltd will be exhibiting its range of hose and fittings, and more besides. Additionally, OPsrl will be displaying its extensive range of hydraulic hose & tubing processing equipment.

The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) will also be exhibiting again at Air-Tech 2012. The key industry organisation will be providing expert and impartial advice on compressed air system legislation, performance and best practice.

The society's main focus for the show will be on its three key campaigns for the year: the new ISO11011 standard for compressed air system assessment, the importance of using genuine spare parts and the AirSAFE registration scheme, its customer review system.

Such was the success of the previous Air-Tech exhibition in 2010; BCAS has decided to increase its presence with a showcase stand at the 2012 event.

Chris Dee, executive director explains the reasons for attending the exhibition: "Air-Tech is becoming an important show for the industry and is certainly a key event in the BCAS calendar.

"Our membership figures are at an all-time high, and we see Air-Tech as the ideal arena for our members to network with each other and also an ideal platform for BCAS to promote its expertise and range of services, both to compressed air suppliers and end users.

"Air-Tech isn't focused on one particular area of the compressed air market; it covers the whole of the supply chain, from compressor technology through to practical applications. This is why it has become our 'exhibition of choice'."
