Air Technologies, an Atlas Copco distributor of compressed air solutions, received a 2014 Energy Efficiency Top Producer Award from American Electric Power Ohio.
The company was ranked sixth for top energy savings with more than 5 million kWh hours saved, largely due to its long-standing partnership with Atlas Copco.
“Many of the kWh saved for our customers were tied to energy-efficient Atlas Copco Variable Speed Drive air compressors,” Air Technologies northeast Ohio regional sales manager Trey Donze said in a statement.
The VSD compressor was introduced in 1994. Fitted with an intelligent drive system, a VSD compressor continuously changes the motor speed to match air demand and eliminates the compressor running in an unloaded state.
“Air Technologies has been a top Atlas Copco distributor for many years and their commitment to providing the most energy efficient solutions to their customers aligns with Atlas Copco’s vision to be First in Mind—First in Choice for all of its stakeholders,” Atlas Copco’s Industrial Air Division U.S. vice president Robert Eshelman said. “We believe the future of industrial compressors is 100 percent variable speed drive and Air Technologies is helping us reach that goal.”
