Ever had one of “those” days where nothing seems to go to plan? Maybe you stubbed your toe on the dresser or locked yourself out of the house. To make matters worse, you realize that your car has a flat tire. It’s days like these that make you fear asking, “What else could go wrong?”
Well, manufacturers have these days too, sometimes several. Days where machines are down, and a quick spare is hard to come by or when a special project calls for extra equipment to meet production schedule. Life can go left for several reasons, but don’t let your equipment be one of them, especially during turnaround season. Not when efficient air dryer rentals and their parts are readily available. Sure, it’s true that in the long run you may need a new industrial air dryer altogether. But in the short term, production schedules don’t wait.
For years, compressed air manufacturers had to go to different rental companies for various elements of their system — from the air dryer and compressor to the aftercooler and dew point meter. We’re now operating as a one-stop shop when it comes to air dryer rentals.
We’re doing this through Hankison Rental, a dryer service that’s offering turnkey industrial air dryer rental equipment. Founded in 1948, many items in the inventory have not been available as rental options before now, and especially not as a package deal.
Hankison can support all-things air dryer rental, from electric and diesel compressors to deliquescent dryers, filter skids and upright tanks. It’s all oil-free.
1. Geographic locations
Location, location, location — it matters when it comes to ensuring air rental dryer equipment is available when you need it. There are more than 2.6 million miles of pipeline in the United States working to deliver trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and hundreds of billions of tons of liquid petroleum products each year, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. With that, industries like those in oil and gas work around the clock and need equipment like air compressors and dryers at all hours of the day — whether it’s planned maintenance or an emergency.
More locations equal faster response. Most equipment can be delivered within 24 to 48 hours in the United States — a big change from years past.
Rental servicing is only as successful as the diverse inventory it keeps. New rental options, including turnkey equipment packages, means less time for customers to seek out different components. This list of Hankison rental equipment has never been offered before including dew point meters, and refrigerated air dryers, giving distributors more options to select from.
3. Customer Service & Relationships
For some companies, customer service responsiveness is shifting gradually. For us, it’s evolving every day. Customers are welcome to call and talk to a live person on the phone with solution makers providing real-time guidance and tips.
Distribution partners can also consign air dryer rental equipment — meaning they keep it on-site for when customer needs arise. This way they have it in hand if they need it, and don’t pay until they use it.
The need for quality products isn’t new. Customers have long relied on equipment they can trust. That’s why air dryer rental companies continue to find new ways to improve their top-of-the-line products, while keeping cost and value in mind.
We did this with the Hankison heatless desiccant dyer that features a mounted particulate and automatic condensate drain with oil removal prefilters and a one-micron after filter — requiring no field filter installation. Its electric and diesel oil-free compressors are designed for customer efficiency too.
The only constant in life is change. And while “those” days will come, they don’t have to last long. With one of the largest fleets in North America, these air dryer rental solutions offer quick availability, reliability and limit down-time so that you can finish building and nourishing our world.
We need that more than anything.
