Centrifugal Compressors for Industrial Manufacturing

Industry Requirements

To stay competitive in the marketplace, industrial manufacturers are being asked to produce more with fewer resources.

Maintaining an efficient operation requires plant operators to select the most reliable and low-maintenance equipment for their applications.

Due to rising energy costs, manufacturers around the world are tasked with finding ways to reduce their energy consumption to sustain reasonable operating costs. 

Industry Solution

Low-maintenance design paired with a strict emphasis on product reliability delivers significant cost savings to FS-Elliott compressor owners.

FS-Elliott has designed our Polaris+ units to allow manufacturers to exploit a compressed air solution to maximize savings while minimizing maintenance requirements.

Our commitment to round-the-clock customer service adds to the benefits of the solution by maximizing uptime.

Case Study: Automotive Component Manufacturer Saves Over $100K


  1. Manufacturing Challenge

    At capacity air generation and delivery resulted in routine production shutdowns and increased manufacturing costs.

    View full case study.

  2. Investigation

    Five oil-flooded rotary screw compressors could not keep up with growing demand, resulting in routine shutdowns.
