Compressed air systems produce condensate which is comprised of water, oil, chemicals, and other contaminants . In the past, air compressor condensate has been dumped down the drain. When condensate is put down the drain, Oil and all of those various contaminants are moving through local sewer systems and into bodies of waters, such as creeks and rivers, doing all sorts of damage to the surrounding environment. Back in 1972, growing concerns of water pollution led to the enactment of the Federal Pollution Control act, more commonly known as the Clean Water Act (CWA).
This week we will be transitioning from the old line of black drums in the CRP family (CRP and CRP-IDC series) over to our new blue unit.
We are excited to announce that we have redesigned our previous "black drum" units to a sleek new design!
We want to make this transition as smooth as possible, so we will be making follow up calls to our distributors making sure there are no surprises throughout the distribution chain. We will also have access to a limited supply of the previous black drum version, if necessary, for current systems early in the transition process. All new systems will move to the new IDC series or our upcoming Smart Pack, which is planned to launch later this year.
The generation 1 series which require the decompression chamber will also be moved to the new IDC series. Incoming po’s will need to be revised to reflect the pricing of the IDC series, which does include an Internal Decompression Chamber.
In with the new and out with the old - no more bulky black drums!
We will be traveling weekly; training on the new product benefits and features, so if you have any questions or would like us to stop in for training, please send us a message below or call our main line at (800) 566-0402.
We're proud to announce our newest product, the Smart-Pak, our replaceable cartridge unit equipped with encrypted "Smart Technology". This new design comes with a housing cabinet that mimics the design of a compressor cabinet, unifying the compressor system. Inside of the cabinet is the replaceable cartridge which comes with a pre-installed battery, eliminating the need for power supply, recharging, and maintenance for the life of the unit.
Clean Resources has been working hard the past several months to revolutionize our offerings to our customers. This month we are proud to officially announce the addition of the new MINI to our line of Clean Resources Products. The unit has been available for several months but we wanted to make a company statement introducing this new product offering to you.
Are you making resolutions for your company for 2016? If your organization uses air compressors to help accomplish your work, you should make a resolution to make your compressor room EPA compliant.
If you are operating an air compressor for your business, you are producing compressor condensate. Compressor condensate is the oil/water mixture that compressors produce, and that fluid can be a challenge to deal with. You see, compressors produce a surprising amount of condensate. Disposing of this condensate in storm sewers, city sewers or in or on the ground is illegal and can produce punitive results from the EPA. The damages levied can include fines, plant shutdown, and even include the costs of site remediation.
If you have a compressor room, you probably know a good deal of knowledge about them and how they function. A lot of misinformation, however, still manages to circulate. Here are some air compressor related myths that you should be aware of.
If your company makes use of air compressors, condensate management is critical for several reasons. Contaminate buildup like oxides, water and small particles can cause serious internal damage and premature wear. They can create clogging and rust. It is also important that this contaminated condensate is disposed of properly. This is not just important for the environment but it keeps your organization within EPA guidelines.
