In today’s economy, with skyrocketing utility and maintenance costs, large medical air systems, consisting of small oil-less scrolls, have the efficiency and flexibility that plant managers in all types of healthcare facilities are looking for.
Ganging several small oil-less scrolls and allowing them to alternate in specifically controlled sequences, serves the small to heavy horsepower requirements healthcare operations face on a day to day basis. These systems pay off their equipment cost in no time and can save hundreds of dollars in energy costs year after year.
The secret is in the programming of the control panel. A quad-plex scroll medical air system consisting of eight, 5 HP oil-less scrolls (shown above) has the ability to alternate between any of its units.
Only the units that are necessary to meet the required demand are in operation at any given time. The others are at rest until more air is needed. In comparison to larger equipment that must run to provide air for even the smallest demand, the scrolls are controlled so efficiently that the wear and tear is spread out and can be minimal. This extends the life of the compressors and the overall life of the system.
This means maintenance costs are also held at bay; the oil-less scroll medical air compressor design is simple and easy to maintain. Parts are few and inexpensive in comparison to other machines. This allows for quick and easy servicing, saving time and money on maintenance fees.
The configuration of the units allows for each small medical air compressor to be isolated, serviced, repaired or even replaced without ever compromising the system. No down time is required at any time. Now that will save you a few bucks, not to mention, the liability.
Scroll air compressors are quiet by design, so the entire system of eight can be less noisy than the old medical compressor it replaced. Since the scrolls have a small footprint, a large scroll system can take up less space than its big, noisy counterpart.
