How to use air effectively
20 May 2011
Air is not free and ACI, a World leading force in air movement technology, can help you maximise its effective use. The company’s range of industrial fans and blowers can deliver a multitude of different permutations of air volumes/pressures to satisfy the most demanding delivery/extraction requirements. Supplied with the appropriate control devices and accessories, maximum operational efficiency is assured.
Fans & Blowers
Designed and Proven
ACI offers a complete design and manufacturing service for bespoke requirements. Having supplied fans and blowers for over four decades, the company has the proven expertise and knowledge to engineer products appropriate for demanding applications. Systems can be tested and proven using a BS848 compliant in-house test facility for measuring losses in airflow systems, be they at the feed or exit points of inline devices or at the end of ducting systems.
ACI is an ISO 9001 certified manufacturing facility with all the required systems and procedures combined with its extensive research and development capability. These qualities give customers the confidence in allowing them to outsource all or part of product manufacture and development whenever it is required.
In addition to ACI’s own products, the company is the exclusive UK distributor for ebm papst for special applications. This extends the company’s ability to provide solutions for both simple and complex air delivery/exhaust applications complete with ancillaries and appropriate control gear.
Available with either single or double inlet centrifugal impellers, these are ultra-compact fans based upon an ‘inside-out’ design that permits dimensions to be kept to an absolute minimum.
These are curved forward bladed centrifugal fans, available in single or three phase, DC or 400Hz, and ATEX versions. They are suitable for extraction, cooling, ventilation, vacuum, aeration, drying and many more industrial applications.
Direct driven blowers offer quiet running and maintenance-free solutions for many higher pressure applications. The modular construction of this range offers a wide choice of performance characteristics and power supply requirements, including DC or 400Hz, and ATEX versions.
QB EC Intelligent Fans
Using intelligent motor technology with integrated controls, QB EC fans allow users to optimise performance to match specific applications with regard to efficiency, speed, acoustic output and cost. Responding to feedback devices monitoring such factors as temperature, pressure and humidity, air flow can be adjusted automatically according to governing conditions.
EP10A Compact Blowers
A belt-driven, centrifugal blower incorporating backward curved turbine bladed impellers. Powerful and quiet, the EP10A blowers are available with motors from 5.5 through to 18.5kW in standard metric or NEMA frames and can be easily retrofitted in place of US alternatives. Due to its small footprint the EP10A is ideal for integrating into customers’ equipment.
EV Radial and Axial Fans
This range is available as low to high pressure units with either forward or backward curved, radial and axial impellers. They are suitable for clean and dust-laden air, pneumatic conveying plus many more industrial air movement applications. Available as direct or belt driven units and in ATEX formats.
Effective surface drying, cleaning and cooling
ACI Airknives Systems are the best way to achieve consistent, effective surface drying, cleaning and cooling of conveyorised products. Also, as well as fulfilling these tasks effectively, Airknife Systems do it much more cost effectively than any other alternative - especially compressed air when used with open pipe or wind jet nozzles.
DRI-Line Bottle dryer
Airknife systems deliver clean air at constant volumes and pressures at all times with no impact on other processes. They only draw power when in use and have little more than zero maintenance requirements
Powered by a centrifugal blower, Airknives operate by directing a curtain of low pressure, high velocity air onto the product through a plenum chamber/linear slot. An optimised system ensures effective surface blow off and cooling.
ACI is a leading designer and supplier of blower-driven drying systems for the Filling Industry. In fact, we can pretty much dry anything!
Customers currently include the World’s principal OEM’s of turnkey filling lines, in addition to leading producers and fillers of brand names in the International Food and Beverage Industries.
The DRI-Line Series is a proven solution and whether your line speeds are 100’s or 1000’s bottles or cans per hour, we will offer efficient, effective and reliable drying systems that simply won’t let you down.
