The site installed 4 Expel units at point of use in these critical areas and an extra AVG Auto Drain for the air receiver tank in September 2020. One year on and Plant Manager Jason Etheridge could not be happier with the results of using Original AVG products.
The Plant Manager noticed a dramatic reduction in downtime caused by pneumatic failures since installing the Expel units. The solution to eliminating all problems with liquid water, oil emulsion fluids and solid particulates in the compressed air lines is to remove the source of the problem immediately before the area in need of protection. Expel is the most superior means of protecting your pneumatic equipment against these harmful compressed air contaminants because unlike a traditional compressed air filter, Expel can guarantee that 99.999% of liquid water, oil emulsion fluids and solid particulates are continually removed from the area it is protecting down to 1 micron. Expel offers a bespoke approach to compressed air filtration because it does not require ANY replacement filter elements, so the performance of Expel does not drop over time and always operates at optimum performance levels.
For these reasons the Expel filters successfully eradicated all the problems across the problem areas including at the mixing deck, the bitumen pumps and at the silos.
Furthermore, the problems caused by manually draining the air receiver tank were eliminated by installing an Original AVG Auto Drain. These issues were solved because the Auto-Drain has zero pressure loss, so air is no longer lost whilst water is drained. Additionally, the Auto-Drain continually and automatically drain any water build up, this prevents excessive liquid water from continuing down the air lines.
