Atlas Copco Rental Peru ensures non-stop production at IMP, allowing them to safely focus on improving their processes

14. juni 2017

Antwerp, Belgium, June 14, 2017: Since June 2016, when Industria Metalmecánica del Perú (IMP) and Atlas Copco Rental started their long term rental partnership, all production areas can breathe easily.

IMP is the leader in zinc treatment in Peru and South America, with 96% of its production being exported. IMP operations include the production of zinc in all forms: sheets, coils, alloys and oxides.


For its production process, IMP relies upon an intensive use of compressed air.


When IMP’s air compressors became unable to maintain the stable pressure required for the company’s machinery to work properly and its service supplier could not offer the expected support: a change was urgently needed to guarantee productivity!


The Atlas Copco Specialty Rental team promptly came up with a solution that would exactly match IMP’s compressed air requirements: GA 75 VSD FF oil injected stationary compressors with variable speed drive.


“The compressors offered by Atlas Copco Rental are the most suitable for our production system: we are able to modulate the compressed air delivery so that the pressure in the air net remains constant.”

Carlos Arzola, Chief of Maintenance at IMP

Another recommendation from us was to place all the compressors together.


Arzola continues: “With Atlas Copco we had the opportunity to redesign the compressor room: for the very first time we have one compressor room to distribute the air throughout our entire facility. Without a doubt, this has made things much easier for maintenance”. 


IMP also found in us a partner who shares values towards a sustainable future.

“These compressors help us fulfill our commitment to the environment, thanks to the variable speed drive technology we make significant energy savings of 25 to 30 kW/hour, or up to 25% energy saving per hour”

Engineer, at IMP

The Atlas Copco Rental staff is always engaged with customer’s satisfaction. Scheduled visits twice per month have allowed not only to verify the well-functioning of the compressors but also to solve any questions or inquiries IMP has had so far concludes Ramón Espinosa, Fleet Coordinator at Specialty Rental Service.
