In a bottling plant in Teeside - England, water in the compressed air line was affecting the pneumatic control system and causing significant plant downtime. A refrigeration
dryer was installed in the compressor room but this was some distance away from the bottling plant. A 1/2" Eliminizer was fitted to the inlet air supply and there has been no trace of water in the control system
since. The throughput of the bottling plant has increased as a direct result.
A large dental practice in Essex - England were experiencing problems with their drills. It was established that water in the compressed air was getting into the drills and the resulting corrosion
was causing the drills to seize up. A 1/4" Eliminizer Combo was fitted to the instrument table in each surgery. Since then all the drills have worked perfectly, saving the practice money and giving the dentists
piece of mind to concentrate on their patients.
Frozen Food Manufacturer
A frozen food factory in Glasgow used an ink jet printer to print bar codes and "sell by" dates on the packaging of their food. Due to the heavy contamination in the compressed air, the
protection afforded by their existing conventional filters was insufficient. Product rejection was high due to the ink running and bar codes being unreadable. 1/4" Eliminizer Combos were fitted to all the ink jet
printers and product rejection has been reduced by more than 90%.
Expensive pneumatically operated stun guns are used by a Scottish salmon farming company to humanely harvest the fish. Harvesting is carried out at sea in all weather conditions and the guns were
failing regularly because of water in the compressed air. When a gun fails, the operator has to return to shore for a replacement which results in significant lost time. A 1/2" Eliminizer was fitted on one barge and
downtime was significantly reduced. Eliminizers were quickly installed on all the other barges. As well as reducing the failure rate, the maintenance interval of the guns have also been extended.
A manufacturer of polystyrene boxes for the television and computer industries in West Lothian - Scotland installed a very expensive new shaping machine but found that it constantly failed. A detailed investigation
established that condensation in the compressed air was causing the failures. A 1/2" Eliminizer was fitted onto the air inlet of the machine which transformed performance. Since then the machine has been running
Hi-Fi Equipment - Linear Tracking Tonearm
Kuzma Ltd of Slovenia have been manufacturing turntables since 1982. The AIR LINE passive linear-tracking tonearm is one of their more recent product in their quest for
the perfect sound. Air bearing are used to provide a truly frictionless parallel tracker. The air bearings are supplied by a compressor but to maintain the friction free motion, the compressed air must be free from
water and contamination. Each tracker is fitted with and Eliminizer Combo to remove water, oil and dirt from the compressed air.

Engine Component Manufacturer
An engine component manufacturer in Belfast - Northern Ireland installed a new injection moulding machine and were instructed by the manufacturers of the machine to ensure that the air
supply was dry. Although they had a refigeration dryer, they still experienced water in certain areas of the factory so they fitted an Eliminizer to the machine to protect their guarantee. The injection moulding
machine has run perfectly since installation and has help with the overall productivity of the factory.
This large abattoir in Bristol processes and packages the meat from the slaughter animals. The packaging machines are situated a cool room. As the compressed air enters the cool room it drops in
temperature causing water vapour to condense into liquid. This liquid water was causing the valves and cylinders in the packaging machine to regularly fail. An Elimizer was fitted to each of the machines and the
packaging is no longer the company's bottle neck.
Commercial Vehicle Repairer
A shot blasting machine at a large commercial vehicle repairer in Liverpool were running off a mobile compressor. The water in the compressed air was mixing with the shot and
causing the machines to seize up. Since fitting a 2" Eliminex onto the shot blasting machine it has not seized up once.
A bus manufacturer in Edinburgh - Scotland had a large spray shop. Small blisters were appearing on the paint finish of their buses which were being returned for a re-paint. This blistering
was being caused by water in the compressed air mixing with the paint. 1/2" Eliminizer Combos were fitted to each spray booth and the problem was solved. A refigeration dryer was also considered but the Eliminizer
Combo option was found to cost less and to be more effective.
Wood & Sawmills
At regular intervals, production at Adam Wilson & Sons Ltd, a softwood sawmill in Ayrshire - Scotland had to be stopped to strip down a cylinder operating one of the clamping arms on a saw because of a
build up of water in the cylinder. A 1/2" Eliminizer was fitted in front of the clamping arm cylinder and since then there has been no downtime or lost production on that saw. Eliminizers have now been fitted to all
the saws. Customers Comments
