On Site Services

All of the products which we supply are extremely hardy and as a result, they are long-lasting.

In some situations, we are required to come to site to assist with servicing of items such as the roots type blowers, the Biogas Compressors, sewage vacuum pumps as well as vacuum pumps.

Industrial Blowers

January 21st, 2011 No comments

Roots type blowers play a vital role in many processes. Applications range from pneumatic conveying of granules and powders to aeration of water and sewage. They are generally very reliable machines but when worked very hard they may breakdown.

At IBS we are very aware of the disruption caused by blower downtime. Our abilities to respond rapidly to a breakdown situation and repair/refurbish damaged machines using state-of-the-art technologies are unequalled in the UK. As part of our service, we can also offer hire equipment for temporary cover whilst your machine is in our workshop.

IBS offer new, reconditioned and service exchange machines. Unlike most manufacturers who specify an 8 to 16 week lead time for new blowers, IBS hold the largest range of new, reconditioned and service exchange blowers in stock ready for immediate despatch.

With an experienced team of professionals we are confident of providing the most cost-efficient solution to blower problems and requirements.

New Blowers

IBS offer new blowers from a wide range of leading manufacturers including Trinado blower, gma blower, Dresser roots blower, wade blower, ingersoll rand blower and drum blower. Bare shaft machines and blower sets are available.

Also, the complete range of SR Blowers (formerly represented in the UK by Adams Ricardo) are available through KPT for whom IBS are the UK agent.

Our flexibility allows us to supply and install any make and model of blower (including new innovations) for any form of contract including Framework Agreements, for example Atlas Copco ZB Centrifugal Blowers and ZS Rotary Screw Blowers.

Some of our other blowers include:
