Reduced Power Consumption for sewage end-users

Posted: Wednesday 28th May 2014

Nitto Kohki have supplied their unique diaphragm-less “linear-shuttle” air blowers to O’Reilly Oakstown since the 1990’s and together have seen business flourish. Being a major player in the Irish domestic sewage market with their OakstownBAF system, O’Reilly Oakstown are constantly looking to suppliers such as Nitto Kohki to deliver new technology and benefits that can easily be passed onto their customers.

Since late 2012 trials have quietly been undertaken with Nitto Kohki’s new low power consumption LA-ECO blower which have culminated in some exciting results.

Rick Faulkner; Nitto Kohki’s UK Pump Sales Manager commented “I really appreciate the time and effort that Diarmuid O’Reilly has committed to our LA-ECO project and in return I am delighted to offer him power savings of between 40% to 50% that he can pass directly to his customers allowing his value-added philosophy to continue through 2014 and beyond”.

Nitto Kohki will be releasing a full range of ECO blowers throughout 2014 covering air flows of 60, 80, 100 & 120l/min. In addition to the ECO blowers they will be introducing the LAM-150 to complement their highest flow unit: the LAM-200 as well as a new version of their ever popular LA-45.

Normal manufacturers’ warranties will apply and lifetimes should easily exceed 5-10 years dependant on operating parameters and atmospheric conditions. The air filter can be changed with a simple “flick of a clip” and a full service only takes 10 minutes, which is complemented by a step-by-step service video on their web-site;

Besides their air blowers, Nitto Kohki manufacture OEM air, vacuum & liquid pumps in Linear-shuttle, linear diaphragm and conventional style diaphragm designs.

Within their other sales units, their success extends to the manufacture of pneumatic, hydraulic and electric power & machine tools as well as a catalogue full of quick-release gas and liquid couplings.
