Aerzen U.S.A. selected as the “Coolest Building”

In March, Key Stone Edge Magazine selected the Aerzen U.S.A. building in Coatesville as one of the five “coolest” buildings in Pennsylvania.In 2009, the “green” building of our American subsidiary which they had moved into in 2008,was awarded LEED Gold (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) for its sustainability by the U.S. Green Building Council. Now they have received another award from a weekly online magazine in Pennsylvania. A decisive factor for the jury was the materials used in the building’s construction, i.e. straw bales and loam, which are reasonably priced but provide good insulation. Our American headquarters is the first commercial building in Pennsylvania with straw walls.

Aerzen Sales Office in Norway

Since January, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik has had its own sales office in Norway. The office, headed by Ove Fauskanger, is located in Drammen, in the southwest of Oslo, and is thus close to several big chemical companies such as Ineos, Hydro and Borealis. Besides the chemical industry, the offshore industry - or more precisely “fish farming” -plays a major role in Norway. Salmon is the country’s second most exported product. Aerzen blowers are used for example in the pneumatic conveying of feed pellets.

It is equipped with three CNC-main axes (X, Z, B) as well as further axes for the workpiece drive, and an “in-process measuring system” through which it is possible to grind to micrometre accuracy. The control of the machine, Siemens 840 D Solution Line, was supplemented by a special Danobat user interface. Danobat, located in the north of Spain, near Bilbao, is part of the Danobat Group, and also demonstrates its considerable skill in innovation, in other technologies.

Delta Screw G5-series expands

In April, at this year’s COMVAC in Hanover and at the POWTECH in Nuremberg, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik successfully introduced the new “E-class” directly-coupled compressors series Delta Screw G5. The new, highly energy efficient concept met with a positive response from customers and potential buyers.

With the new series, Aerzener Maschinenfabrik sets new benchmarks as far as reliability and energy- saving is concerned in oil-free screw compressors. From Summer 2013 the first two compressor types, VM 45 G5-E and VML 60 G5-E, can be ordered from Aerzen. By the end of this year, two more models, the VM 75 G5-E and the VML 95 G5-E, will join the new Aerzen “E-class”. A flyer which describes the innovations, including all of their technical details, can be obtained from the Marketing division.

Aerzen Representation in Nigeria

Due to the increasing number of customers in West Africa, Airgas Compressors, the South African subsidiary company of Aerzener Maschinenfabrik based in Johannesburg, decided to establish a sales office in Nigeria. The location they have selected is Lagos, the country’s biggest city, which, due to its central position, offers access not only to Nigeria but also to all of West Africa, and consequently provides considerable proximity to our customers in this region.The new office will be headed by Emmanuel Dazi. After having completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering in Nigeria, and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Brunel University in London, he gained a number of year’s experience in the cement industry, where he was responsible for technical support for blowers and compressors.

Nomination for Innovation Award 2013

Aerzen Delta Real Time Monitoring was nominated for this year’s Innovation Award at the PowTech fair. Ultimately we did not win the award, but just being nominated is quite an achievement in itself, particularly as: The Aerzen product finished in the top three out of 52 competitors. In addition, Delta Real Time Monitoring had been placed, for lack of a suitable alternative, in an inapplicable category, namely MSR and automation. In 2012 Aerzener Maschinenfabrik was able to win the Innovation Award with Delta Hybrid in the apparatus construction and process components category.
