Considerations for Glass & Plastics Air Compressor Systems & Vacuum Solutions

The plastics industry faces considerable demand for a product that touches every part of daily life, and plants may operate 24/7 to meet that demand. Compressed air is used in a wide variety of plastics applications, from calibration of molten material leaving the extruder to blow molding and injection molding processes. To maintain a 24/7 schedule, reliable compressed air is essential in plastics applications. Compressed air equipment must be designed for demanding environments involving dirt, dust, and heat to reduce downtime.

Most plastics manufacturers also need clean, high quality materials to ensure the integrity of finished products that must meet medical or food grade standards. To meet these standards, plastics processes may require ISO 8573-1 Class 0 oil-free compressed air. An oil-free air compressor sized for specifications can meet this need while offering low lifecycle operating costs.

Plants in the glass industry also often operate around the clock, requiring constant uptime that only the most reliable compressed air solutions can deliver. Compressed air is used to drive glass blowing machines or to blow liquid glass into molds, as well as other processes like pneumatic conveying of raw material.

Compressed air system audits can reveal opportunities to gain glass & plastics process efficiencies and improve reliability and uptime.  To avoid air compressor repairs that result in downtime, extra cost and disruption to the ability to meet demand, ask for one of our compressed air system audits.
