Control Gear have been installing air compressors and related plant and equipment in and around Swansea since 1973. In that time, we have built one of the nation’s most experienced and best-trained teams of engineers who are ready to help you with all your compressed air needs.
Our team can design and install a compressed air system that will meet your needs now and in the future, and can offer servicing and maintenance on any air compressor. Control Gear are here to make sure your business — whatever the sector — has safe and reliable compressed air.
And our installation or servicing will always fully audit and health check your equipment, as well as an assessment of your current and future needs. It helps ensure that we don’t just provide a service, but a partnership, where we work by your side to ensure you have the most efficient and reliable processes possible.
Air Compressors in Swansea and Parts
Our technical team can provide a complete audit of current equipment being used on-site and make recommendations on how to improve the compressed air distribution system. Compressed air is essential to a wide range of industries, and we do everything possible to ensure a safe, efficient and reliable supply for your production process.
Whether it’s a one-time repair or a longer-term service contract, Control Gear can help to make sure your compressor system does not let you down.
Swansea and Compressed Air
Swansea became a city in 1969 and since that time the industry in the area has become far more diversified. The Faculty of Science & Engineering at Swansea University is nationally and globally recognised as a centre of excellence and collaborates closely with many industrial sectors in the area.
The Materials Science Department is working with leading companies such as Airbus, Rolls Royce, GKN, Aston Martin and BASF. New coated metal products developed within the research centre are now being used by Tata Steel, General Electric and Tokyo Electric Power
Huge investment has been made in recent years to make Swansea a hub for manufacturing excellence. Many global companies covering a wide range of sectors now have facilities in or near the city. Transportation equipment, machinery manufacturing, chemical manufacturing and electronics are just some of the key industrial sectors – all requiring clean efficient compressed air as part of their industrial processes. Some also require efficient gas generation such as nitrogen in order to manufacture their products.
Control Gear are experts in helping to keep this equipment running as efficiently as possible. We offer a full range of service and maintenance plans to suit the customer’s requirements – from a simple call out or a more comprehensive service plan.
Why Work With Us?
Swansea: The Industrial Revolution's Cradle and Global Hub for Tinplate and Copper Production
Calling on Swansea’s history as a materials innovator, many multinationals locate in Swansea to collaborate with the university’s Materials Science Department. Often these echo the area’s history as the global centre for tinplating, working on coated products that enhance the durability and aesthetic qualities of the underlying metals.
Companies that are working in the area include big names like Airbus, Rolls-Royce, GKN, Aston Martin, and BASF. As well as representing a range of industrial sectors, they all share a need for precision and quality in their work. Whether it’s working with a passenger jet, or chemicals used in household products, the quality of their compressed air can have a significant impact on their product.
As technology has improved, the manufacturing tolerances often get smaller. Compressed air itself can be filtered to ensure that it doesn’t contain impurities like particulates or water vapour that might affect industrial processes. Or even to generate nitrogen, to ensure an unreactive atmosphere. Control Gear are experts in filtration, and work with many clients who rely on us to make sure their compressed air and nitrogen is as pure as possible.
