There comes a time when you have to get creative—designing a compressed air system is no exception. These four installations certainly had us scratching our heads and checking our calendars to make sure it wasn’t April 1 when we got the initial specs—I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of our more creative compressed air system solutions.

The “Call Me Maybe Installation”

In addition to a compressor, dryer, and air receiver, this system comes complete with a telephone pole for all your communications needs.

The “Silo of Doom”

Designing everything to fit inside this silo spun us right round…

The “Fortress of Solitude”

Fitting the ducting in between these medieval looking rafters was like playing Tetris—with the added bonus of calculating pressure drop.

The “Compressor Room with a View”

This one included a mezzanine—for the compressor of discerning taste.

These are definitely extreme examples, but they also highlight the benefit of taking a step back and using system drawings when considering new equipment. System drawings help visualize how equipment will fit into a room and work with space requirements and existing equipment. They can also highlight potential problems—for example, inadequate ventilation or service access. Are you planning an installation and have special space requirements? Contact us and we’d be happy to help find a creative solution.
