Rotherham company re-launches innovative energy saving solution

posted 2 Aug 2011, 07:23 by RiDO Rotherham
Rotherham based manufacturing company EMS UK Ltd are re-launching their innovative Airstar solution as spiralling electricity costs coupled with legally binding carbon reduction targets facing companies has lead to an increase in demand for the first of its kind solution.

Airstar reduces up to 90% of compressed air consumption by operating on air jet nozzles at point of use. It is ideal for applications such as material movements, dispersion of liquids, cooling items, reverse jet filtration, removing items from trays and/or tools and any other applications in which open compressed air jets may be in use.

Compressed air is one of the most expensive energy sources to a company, accounting for as much as 15% of total electricity costs on many commercial sites. The Airstar system, with a unique approach to controlling compressed air usage at the point of use through a flexible on/off control based micro processor system affords a high level of savings. In addition, benefits include reduced maintenance costs and minimising health & safety risks relating to high pressure at point of use.

Dr Alex Mardapittas Managing Director of EMS UK Ltd commented. ”Airstar has helped many companies reduce their impact on the environment and substantially lower electricity bills. We have experienced an increase in demand for the solution over recent months and as such have decided that now is the ideal time to re-launch the product into the market place”.

EMS are renowned for being at the forefront of technological advances in energy management thanks to their Star® range of solutions. The six products, all designed and manufactured in the UK using locally sourced components are Powerstar, Airstar, Hotelstar, Lightstar, Motorstar and Autostar. The company’s product portfolio boasts an impressive range of applications that can reduce energy consumption and cut electricity costs with payback periods from as little as 6 months.
