New Excelon Plus Air Preparation Units

Member News

IMI Precision Engineering has advanced its portfolio of air preparation products with the introduction of the lighter and smaller IMI Norgren Excelon® Plus. The latest generation of air preparation equipment, Excelon® Plus is a modular Filter, Regulator, Lubricator (FRL) range suitable for all industrial applications. Designed with safety in mind, it combines great performance and is compact and lightweight.

Tamper-resistant features come as standard and include:

> Padlock features on the shut-off valves and regulator
> A rotating safety shut-off valve, which makes it easy to isolate the system with no reduction in performance
> A unique double safety bowl lock with an audible bowl clip – a safety detent which when pressurised makes it impossible to remove the bowl when in use.

The new filter maintenance system allows the filter element assembly to be removed with the bowl, enabling faster and cleaner servicing. It features a Quikclamp system, which acts as a bracket and locks Excelon® Plus modules together. Excelon® Plus can be used on stand-alone or modular assemblies and allows for installation and removal of units without breaking a pipe connection.

David Whelan, Global Product Director, said: “Excelon® Plus is a result of our inventiveness, imagination and innovation. Since 1927, when Carl Norgren invented the automatic airline lubricator, we have been developing components that produce clean and controlled compressed air. Customers’ changing needs are at the centre of all IMI Precision Engineering’s products. With the new safety and functionality features and a compact and lightweight design with no compromise on robustness, Excelon® Plus helps keep customers’ marvellous machines running smoothly.

“We know that our customers all have different requirements. This is why we’ve built on our reliable and robust IMI Norgren products and developed a modular system that can be tailored to individual applications. Excelon® Plus helps customers marvellous machines run to the optimum efficiency for the longest possible time with the lowest life costs.”
