Hope Air Systems Draws Crowd to Air Compressor Seminar

An overflow crowd of service technicians, engineers, sales engineers, business owners and maintenance personnel, attended an all-day intensive training seminar sponsored by Kaeser Compressor and Hope Air Systems, on new techniques and technologies designed to reduce the costs of operating today's compressed air systems.

Northborough MA - An over-capacity crowd filled the Training Center at Hope Air Systems last week to hear from experts on how to operate air compressors more efficiently during a time when waste and inefficiency are on everyone’s mind.

According to Peter Rhoten, President of Hope Air Systems, the response to the recent one-day training seminar was not surprising to him. Peter Rhoten said, “Every day, as our sales team calls on customers throughout New England, we hear the same request - how can I save money on the rising cost of electricity?”

 The seminar was presented by Roy Stuhlman of Kaeser Compressors and Peter Rhoten of Hope Air Systems. With a combined experience over 75 years in the compressed air field, they brought a depth of knowledge unmatched in the industry.

The seminar, which was offered at a fee of $50 per person, was limited to a class size of 50, but according to Cathy Donahue of Hope Air Systems, a total of 53 signed up before she could cut-off registrations. “We squeezed a few extras in at the last minute,” she said.

 “Compressed air is not free,” said Peter Rhoten. “But unlike other utilities such as water, oil and gas, if you are smart, you can do something about the cost of compressed air by thinking of it as a system and not just a machine in the mechanical room,” he added.


The seminar focused on how to properly size a system, how to ensure proper quality of air, consistent quantity of pressure and flow, condensate management and how to assess the true costs of compressed air. Each participant received a 310 page manual covering all the major topics of the seminar, plus additional literature on specific products and services available through Kaeser and Hope Air Systems.

 At the conclusion of the seminar, sign-ups began for the next session scheduled for the end of summer or early fall, according to Peter Rhoten. "There was a lot of interest in this session and we plan to hold another to accommodate those who could not attend this time," he added.

Hope Air Sytems is a subsidiary of THG Corporation, headquartered in Northborough MA, with offices in Bangor and Portland ME, Manchester NH, Fitchburg and Westfield MA and Cranston RI. The company was founded in 1933, celebrating its 75th Anniversary last year.
