Hi-line Technical Division: nationwide coverage, local presence

Published:  28 February, 2024

Hi-line Industries, a UK-based leader in the design, manufacture and installation of energy-efficient compressed air purification equipment, has announced it has established a new Technical Division that further elevates the level of support available to its valued nationwide distribution network. With highly qualified and accredited technicians, Hi-line says its Technical Division uses an unbranded fleet of vehicles whenever the need arises to provide support for a third party.

As an ISO9001-accredited UK manufacturer of class-leading air filters, adsorption dryers and air treatment ancillaries, Hi-line says it is a major supplier to the compressed air industry. One of Britain’s largest stockists and a proud member of the ‘Made in Britain’ campaign, the company says it has a responsibility to support its extensive distribution network, which includes compressed air service companies, compressor OEMs and local industrial suppliers/agents.

Hi-line’s new Technical Division employs only experienced compressed air treatment service personnel, with engineers trained in all aspects of compressed air and gas generation. Every technician is ACRIB (Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Board) registered and an approved ‘safe refrigerant handler’ in accordance with REFCOM (Register of Companies Competent to Handle Refrigerants). The company is also affiliated to BCAS (British Compressed Air Society) and works in association with DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs).

To support its broad portfolio of class-leading solutions for the compressed air industry, Hi-line’s Technical Division offers an extensive list of services. The servicing of compressed air dryers made by Hi-line and other manufacturers (refrigeration and desiccant models) is clearly a core activity - involving tasks such as filter element replacement, desiccant changes and condensate separator maintenance - but there is plenty more to Hi-line’s new service offer.

For instance, the company can provide air treatment total care agreements, energy audits (compressed air flow analysis), breathing air analysis, leak surveys, compressor data logging (with reports) and dewpoint measurements. In addition, the company has a long list of retrofit services available, including the ability to add dewpoint control to any make of dryer via the company’s high-capability AEMS (Automatic Energy Management Systems). Hi-line can also update dryer analogue control to touchscreen panels and provide dial-in retrofits for digital monitoring. Even pipework installations and modifications (including hygiene-grade stainless steel pipes) are no problem for the company’s Technical Division. Importantly, discretion is a priority whenever required.

“Many of our products are ‘unbranded’ at the request of compressor companies and other OEMs,” explains Hi-line’s Managing Director Steve Smith. “To support these products, we have an unbranded fleet of vehicles and can even adopt plain overalls and customer service report sheets upon request. Whatever your service requirement, we have discreet, well presented and qualified engineers to support compressed air treatment equipment made by Hi-line and others.”
