Stroud may be best known for its cultural offering, or even for its association with textile manufacture, but today it supports many small and medium-sized engineering and manufacturing companies.

Compressed air can be used in any size of business, even those operating out of small units. Air compressors are used in a range of settings and, for many, a small portable air compressor is ideal. Whether it allows for it to be used in a variety of locations, or just because it can be stored out of the way when not in use.

And if a permanent installation is required, but space is at a premium, Control Gear’s design team can help. We will work with you to understand your processes, designing an installation that stays out of the way while still delivering the reliable compressed air you need.


FAQs about Air Compressors in Stroud

How can I cut down expenses related to my air compressor?

To minimise costs, ensure regular maintenance of your compressor, promptly address any leaks, select the appropriate oil, and enhance your system’s energy efficiency. Employing a compressor with a variable speed drive (VSD) can also help in aligning the compressor’s output with the demand, thereby conserving energy.

At which intervals should I consider maintenance for my air compressor?

The interval for maintenance can vary based on the air compressor’s brand, model, technology, and size. Some compressors might benefit from biannual checks, while others from quarterly evaluations. For a definitive answer, please consult Control Gear.

What’s covered in air compressor service?

The scope of air compressor service can be diverse, based on the systems at hand. Typical actions encompass: A meticulous visual scrutiny, application of lubricants, replacement of air dryer filters, engagement of blowers and gauges, oil switch, thermal imaging observations, and vapor leak assessments.

Stroud: From Cloth Town Legacy to Modern Engineering with Control Gear

Stroud, nestled in the heart of Gloucestershire, is more than just a market town and civil parish. It stands as a testament to the indomitable spirit of the Industrial Revolution. Historically, Stroud thrived as a major cloth town, its woolen mills drawing power from the intricate network of rivers weaving through its five valleys.

The town’s reputation soared with the production of ‘Stroud Cloth’, a broadcloth that garnered global acclaim and became synonymous with quality.

The 19th Century saw Stroud further solidify its position as a pivotal industrial and trading nexus, bolstered by a robust canal system. Adding to its architectural and historical significance, the Stroud Railway Station, a masterpiece designed by the legendary Isambard Kingdom Brunel, stands as a testament to the town’s rich heritage.

While the echoes of its textile legacy still resonate today—with Stroud producing the iconic green baize for snooker tables and the cloth for championship tennis balls—the town has evolved. Today, Stroud is a hub for light engineering and small-scale manufacturing.

In this modern industrial landscape, Control Gear plays a crucial role, ensuring that businesses, from traditional textile producers to innovative engineering firms, have access to top-tier air compressors and services, underpinning Stroud’s continued journey of growth and innovation.
