Compressor Installation Challenges

How do you replace a compressor on the fifth floor when the elevator isn't an option?

The client’s needs are always met

Qualcomm is the world’s leading wireless technology innovator and at their Cambridge Business Park offices the compressed air solution needed upgrading. The two key drivers of this upgrade were the growing capacity of compressed air needed to support the business. As well as the company ethos of promoting the digital transformation of the society to build an increasingly connected, inclusive and environmentally sustainable future. So they wanted a compressor with increased air capacity which was highly energy efficient.

The Avelair full Monty

With a can do mindset, anything is possible. The Cambs Compressors engineering team specified an Avelair Compressor to fit the customers compressed air capacity and energy efficiency needs. Then set to figure out how to get the compressor into the fourth floor plant room. It would be a full strip down or bust! Which meant taking delivery of the compressor from Avelair, the British designer and manufacturer from their Bury Saint Edmunds facility. The brand new 37kw Variable speed drive compressor was stripped down to manageable parts and taken up manually the five flights of stairs weaving in and out of roof mounted plant, down some steps and into the plant room, where the unit was reassembled, commissioned and tested.
