The company will again be located at NASREC’s outside water complex (Stand P15), sharing 250sqm with sister companies Integrated Fire Technology and Integrated Pump Technology who also fall under the GIGI Group umbrella.

“The biennial mining exhibition presents us with the perfect platform to introduce the new ELGi EQ compressor range to the local market,” says Wayne Jacobs, MD of Integrated Air Solutions. “We are extremely excited about the newly released EQ Rotary Air Screw compressor range which slots in seamlessly between ELGi’s belt driven EN units and the more efficient direct drive EG machines, enabling us to essentially meet the full spectrum of industrial air demands. The EQ sells at the price point of some belt driven units, while offering the efficiency improvement of a direct drive configuration, coupled with the possibility of an integrated Variable Speed Drive (VSD).”

The AB Series Oil Free Rotary Screw Air Compressor, complete with integrated VSD for optimised energy consumption, will be on display adjacent to high pressure portable units. With flow rates of up to 1 500 CFM and a maximum discharge pressure of 28 bar, these mobile machines cater mainly to the water well drilling market.

“Medium pressure trolley-mounted portable compressors for flow rates between 185 and 850 CFM, for applications including sandblasting, shot-creting, construction and demolition tasks, round off our quality air solutions exhibit,” says Wayne.

While cutting-edge designs that promote rugged reliability and easy maintenance form the DNA of the company’s complete compressed air portfolio, the major ongoing focus is on scaling up energy/fuel efficiency. “Our compressed air solutions add true value for customers in terms of lowest total cost of operation and ownership,” states Wayne.

Integrated Air Solutions forges long-term customer partnerships and machine supply marks only the first step in the compressed air journey. “We dial into our customers’ specific needs, offering an after-market service that mirrors the superior quality of our products,” asserts Wayne. “Aligning with this strategy, we provide industry-leading warranty cover on our ELGi air compressors.” He explains that while standard warranty conditions apply i.e. adherence to service intervals, using only genuine parts and qualified technicians as stipulated by the OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer), customers are not expected to sign Service Level Agreements to be able to claim on warranties. “This flags our confidence in the performance and reliability of our machines. Our aftermarket team will be on hand during the exhibition to advise customers on spare parts, services, overhauls and our tailor-made Service Level Agreements.”

The company’s knowledgeable team of specialists will also be on standby during the exhibition, ready to share with customers the benefits of installing inline air treatment equipment, such as dryers and filters, on their processes. “Customers who are not ready or who do not wish to make a capital investment, can discuss their short-, medium- or long-term air requirements with our Rental team.”
