Pedro Gil blowers identified as ‘’the perfect fit’’ for Australian conditions after a worldwide search.
CAPS Australia today announced the signing of an exclusive Australian distributorship with the innovative Spanish positive displacement blower manufacturer, Pedro Gil. Following extensive customer feedback, CAPS completed a worldwide search to find a new partnership with a manufacturer with a proud brand heritage that could produce blowers suitable for Australia’s harsh environment conditions.
“Pedro Gil blowers are truly the perfect fit for our conditions,” said Sri Srinivasan, Product Manager – Blowers for CAPS Australia. “The Pedro Gil range has thrived in some of the hottest and humid environments in the world, and has numerous operational advantages over Robuschi blowers, which we have been distributing for several years. Once our customers see them in action, they’ll quickly identify that the range is another big leap ahead,” added Srinivasan.
Precision-engineered to deliver major savings in floor space in tight plant rooms, as well as piping and electrical installation costs, the range emphasises Pedro Gil’s determination to put customer needs first when developing products. The compact footprint allows for mounting side-by-side, and makes maintenance easier to complete. Previously time-consuming activities (due to difficulty of access) such as oil checks and refills can now be completed from the front of the unit, saving time for service technicians. In addition, the once difficult task of installation is simplified by a base\floor for easier lifting and into final position.
The innovative design of the acoustic enclosure ensures very low noise levels to comply with Australian workplace health and safety standards. “The range has many great smart design features, including large enclosure ventilation fans to ensure reliable operation even at high ambient temperature conditions, check and relief valves mounted inside the enclosure, belt guards included as standard, and an optional electronic control panel,” said Srinivasan. The unit’s electronic control panel allows for monitoring of operating parameters from the customer’s plant PLC and also provides various maintenance indications.
This remote monitoring capability can be improved yet again, via CAPS’ ability to custom design control systems to operational multi-site needs. Other options include special paints and finishes, allowing for use in corrosive environments or the wastewater industry (for example), and additional discharge silencers to reduce the overall plant noise level. CAPS customers retain their access to the company’s unique ability to custom design specially-engineered blower packages in Australia.
Customers who previously purchased Robuschi blowers from CAPS will remain supported by complete spare parts access, along with service and repairs from factory-trained technicians.
With over 77 years of experience with manufacturing positive displacement blowers, Pedro Gil’s products have been successfully installed in thousands of locations around the world.
CAPS has a nation-wide service network with 9 branch locations and 3 remote locations offering 24/7 after sales service to support the Pedro Gil blower range.
