Aerzen Rental contributes to production safety

Complete solutions for rent - for example for wastewater treatment

Aerzen Rental offers complete solutions for short and medium term rental of AERZEN machines for oil-free compression of air and neutral gases. Customers benefit from this when things have to be done quickly.

Aerzen Rental offers numerous solutions for short and medium term rental.

Aerzen Rental is able to mobilise technological, logistic and personnel resources around the clock in order to guarantee production continuity for customers. Now, the customer of a water treatment company, which had worked with Aerzen Rental previously, has benefited from this. 

A food producer had engaged the renowned water treatment company to treat and purify the waste water from the production of fruit juices. The construction of the necessary sewage plant had been delayed - but to postpone the production of the juices for four months would have meant losses of €200,000 per week for the food company.

Temporary treatment facility in a sludge storage tank

Aerzen Rental installed a temporary treatment facility in a sludge storage tank on behalf of the waste water company - because, in addition to blowers, the AERZEN subsidiary also offers fine-bubble aeration plates for rental, through which each basin can be modified into an aerobic treatment unit. In this case, Aerzen Rental delivered an AERZEN blower with a volume flow of 1,500 m³/h and three fine bubble diffuser plates. 

Once the temporary wastewater treatment plant was up and running, the customer was able to concentrate on its actual business again. Aerzen Rental made a decisive contribution to this thanks to fast availability, adherence to delivery dates and tailor-made equipment.

AERZEN is expanding its service portfolio with a new digital offering: Aerzen Digital Systems GmbH develops solutions in the field of digitalisation that make AERZEN standard blowers and compressors even more efficient, reliable and durable. The cloud will provide the customer with a comprehensive insight into the status of his machines. Depending on the service booked, preventive maintenance, for example, should also be made possible on the basis of appropriate analyses. Such data-based services will be designed and implemented by Aerzen Digital Systems in a cost-effective and risk-optimised way. The market launch of the digital service for the AERZEN machine park management is planned for May 2020.

New Appointment in Product Management

Thomas Kuhn was appointed to the role of AERZEN Product Manager for the oil-injected screw compressors, accessories and services division on 1 February 2020. In addition to being responsible for VMX compressors, his new area of responsibility includes the higher-level AERZEN AERsmart control system, accessories (including air-to-air and water-to-air aftercoolers) and the AERaudit service.

Signing a contract with Royal Haskoning

In September 2019, AERZEN signed a contract with the new partner Royal Haskoning as an “International preferred supplier”. This offers AERZEN the opportunity to enter into aeration projects of the wastewater treatment with one of the world’s most renowned engineering companies as early as the consulting phase. Royal Haskoning also offers its customers a patented and very successful processing technology, called Nereda. With this process, a special biogranulate ensures eight times the absorption capacity of the bioorganisms. This means that wastewater treatment plants can be designed to be very space-saving, as pre- and final clarification tanks are completely unnecessary with this technology. This process can reduce investment costs by up to 40 percent. Operating costs in connection with AERZEN compressor technology and a modern aeration system can also be reduced by 50 percent.
