SAPA Components Limited

Our customer

Sapa Components UK Ltd specializes in combining machining, press working and forming techniques with the application of versatile and attractive finishes; creating highly visible aluminum components which are both functional and decorative.

The order

In April 2008 Certuss UK were invited to tender for a project by SAPA Components Ltd, that would involve the replacement of their existing steam plant.
The existing steam plant at SAPA Components Ltd was a Collins Walker 2200 lb/h Electric Boiler and was found to be non cost effective. The client requested a replacement unit to serve their process for the production of pressed components for the car industry. The increased demand required 24/7 operation.

Our solution

After visiting site and carrying out various calculations for the best option available a CERTUSS Universal 850 (1874 lb/h) LPG fired generator was offered complete with necessary ancillary components fitted bespoke to the site.
The equipment was delivered to site the start of June 2008 with the full installation and commissioning being completed in October.

The advantages

Due to an increased production demand SAPA Components Ltd have been operating on a 24/7 production level for the past 6 months to date (Christmas Day being an exception), the CERTUSS generator operating beyond 2 scheduled service visits, which is a testimonial to the reliability of the product.
Since the installation of the CERTUSS Generator at SAPA Components Ltd the company have saved in excess of £160,000 on fuel costs. (6 months operation)
