Hydrovane reduces compressed air maintenance costs at aluminium refinery

 

Thirty-three 37kW Hydrovane compressors have helped global aluminium producer, Alcoa, to increase productivity and lower maintenance costs at its refinery in San Ciprián, Spain.

 

  • Hydrovane provided two trial units for Alcoa to test before making the investment in new equipment

  • Reduced incidents or failures of the compressed air system during metal casting operations

  • Requirement for oil changes reduced by 75% - due to oversized oil chamber

  • Reduced man-hours devoted to equipment failures

  • Consistent air pressures to ensure no loss of production, particularly during casting operation
