Air compressors make waves in waterworks

Water treatment plants across Australia have been exposed to more extreme weather events in the last few years. Access to sophisticated compressed air solutions supports water treatment plants and their environmental safeguards.

Water treatment plants across Australia have been exposed to more extreme weather events in the last few years. Access to sophisticated compressed air solutions supports water treatment plants and their environmental safeguards.

Australia continues to be one of the world’s most advanced countries for delivering water treatment solutions to its citizens. Its geography is behind many of the advancements made in this area of critical infrastructure, as it exposes the country to extreme meteorological conditions. These events have been more visible than in the past few years, with severe bushfires and intense flooding that lasted months. Australia’s population density and growing urban sprawl compound the impact of adverse weather conditions, placing pressure on infrastructure, particularly the clean water supply.

Primary water treatment plants are complex operations with high-level environmental and safety oversight. Their importance to our living standards is critical. Ensuring they are functioning at their optimum, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, requires all the moving parts to meet stringent standards for quality and reliability.

Compressed air is a significant piece of the infrastructure. Consistent and reliable air pressure to pumping stations and clean air to the treatment process is crucial to successful and dependable operations. These operations demand powerful, reliable, and system-integrated air compressors designed and manufactured to the highest level of operational integrity.

Who is Pilot Air?

Pilot Air works closely with several state water boards to design and manufacture custom fit-for-purpose compressed air solutions. It works collaboratively with facilities and delivers bespoke, purpose-built solutions that meet the individual specifications of each treatment plant.

Pilot Air’s Chief Executive, Martin Wyllie, is proud of his team’s work.

“At Pilot Air, we work closely with the relevant engineers to ensure we fully understand both the project’s technical requirements and the site’s environmental constraints,” he said. “The ability to custom build a solution from the ground up means we can fulfil the unique requirements of the water treatment industry that often cannot be met with standard ‘out of the box’ products.”

What makes Pilot Air different?

Pilot Air’s success in this space is its multidisciplinary approach. The business employs advanced software diagnostics to extract critical data that informs performance levels, user demands and power and energy challenges. The technical team works hand-in-hand with the design and manufacturing teams to ensure material selection for the housings meets demand specifications, internal componentry and instrumentation is customised accurately, and safety and environmental oversight stipulations are in place. The solution is wholly manufactured in Australia at Pilot Air’s east coast facility, with quality control management at every touchpoint. Once complete, the solution is tested, installed, and commissioned by our technical team, with ongoing maintenance and service scheduling built in.

Pilot Air’s experience, expertise and professionalism are invaluable to those tasked with public works and complex, large-scale responsibilities that influence public amenities and social demands.
