A new pay-as-you-go compressed air scheme has been launched by Atlas Copco, airLET, which embraces the latest energy efficient air compressors and predictive maintenance technology.
airLET is also backed up by full after-sales service support, to provide end users with a guaranteed and reliable compressed air supply under a flexible agreement. It is designed specifically for customers who may experience periodic extra usage demands or have limited capital reserves.
Paul Clark, UK Business Line Manager, Atlas Copco Industrial Air Division, commented: “This represents a completely new offering for our customers. With an airLET agreement, customers only pay for what they use. A monthly fixed service charge and a variable compressed air usage fee, measured by our SmartLink remote monitoring system, enable users to plan and manage their operational costs according to current needs and budgets.”
An airLET agreement covers all the equipment needed for a complete air solution: GA VSD+ (Variable Speed Drive) rotary screw compressors that provide average energy savings of 50% compared with fixed-speed alternatives, dryers, filters, air receivers, condensate drains, oil-water separators and AirNet compressor room aluminium pipework.
The airLET scheme also includes installation, as well as parts, service and breakdown cover during working hours within the fixed monthly fee. This eliminates any unexpected or hidden costs for unforeseen repairs. On-time preventive maintenance by expert engineers using genuine Atlas Copco parts assures uninterrupted performance at optimum efficiency.
The simple and flexible airLET agreement includes upgrade or downgrade options after 12 months that enable users to adapt compressed air production with consumption, based on the production levels registered by the SmartLink remote monitoring system. Equipment can be upsized or downsized where necessary, with the option to exchange for alternative capacity units; or even return them at the end of the contract.
No major investment in capital equipment is required and the scheme offers flexible, energy efficient installations that can be changed as needed; offering the best performance with a reduced level of risk in times of uncertainty.
