KMF, supplyer of precision sheet metal solutions, from the United Kingdom, installed a new Ingersoll Rand RS37ie Next Generation R-Series compressor in its modern production facilities in North Staffordshire, UK. Ingersoll Rand, a global leader in compressed air and gas systems and services, power tools, material handling, and fluid management equipment met the stringent requirements set by the leaders at KMF, who needed to replace their old compressor to secure 24-hour reliable air supply for their industrial operations. Since installing, the RS37ie compressor has been running continually at full load and KMF experienced more than 10 percent increase in output. On site, KMF currently runs four compressors from Ingersoll Rand. The units supply compressed air for nitrogen generation, machinery, riveting and for the paint plant.

“Running a 24/7 operation at least 350 a year means we are always investing in the latest equipment to provide continuous reliability and high-level efficiency,” said Steve Swingewood, maintenance manager from KMF Precision Sheet Metal Ltd. “When a new compressor was due to be installed, with the long relationship we have with Ingersoll Rand, they were the first port of call. We chose the new RS37ie due to its improved efficiency, reliability and service.”

“KMF was one of our first customers to operate the Next Generation R-Series compressors launched in September of last year,” said Evren Akcora, business development manager at Ingersoll Rand Compression Technologies and Services. “When investing in research and development of our air compressors, we always aim to help our customers achieve better operational goals and be more competitive. We’re proud that our long-time customers like KMF can experience the ability of these compressors to deliver up to 13 percent improvement in efficiency compared to previous models.”

RS37ie models are among the first in a series of new oil-flooded rotary screw air compressors known as the Next Generation R-Series. This portfolio of compressors delivers world-class performance and enhanced reliability, lowering operational costs for those in need of general purpose plant air in support of assembly, manufacturing, mining and conveying applications. These compressors improve performance through a state-of-the-art airend, which is the heart of every air compressor. The new airend design was developed through advanced analytics and modeling, and includes an optimized rotor profile. The new rotor profile contributes to market leading airflow capacity, delivering up to 11 percent more airflow than previous models. The improved airflow creates a more reliable air supply, reducing downtime and increasing production efficiency, even in extreme operating conditions. An enhanced bearing arrangement and sealed drive system further improves performance and reliability; and reduces the need for maintenance.
