Two new compressors.

Quickslide has grown to become one of the UK's largest manufacturers of UPVC and aluminium window frames and doors and has invested heavily in the latest machinery which uses compressed air. This is fine when the compressor is working, but a recent mechanical failure of the main, old rotary vane compressor meant that production had to stop. Leighton Harris, THORITE'S capita equipment sales engineer was able to quickly organise a rental machine, which meant that Quickslide was soon able to return to full production. In the meantime, an order was placed for two new compressors: A 37 kW Kaeser HPC BSD 75T variable-speed compressor with Sigma Control was chosen as a direct replacement for the failed main compressor and a 22 kW Kaeser HPC ASK 40T variable speed compressor was ordered to replace an old screw compressor.
