Meeting and Exceeding the End User’s Needs Together: Trusted Partnerships

The best manufacturers tirelessly seek out valuable relationships that become more than just equipment providers; they seek trusted partners who share the same goals for success.  For Universal Blower Pac, this has always been our goal: meet and exceed the end user’s needs and expectations for every project.  We’ve found that this is one of the keys to growing the valuable relationships we have with numerous engineering and manufacturing firms who, in turn, call on us to do the same for their clients.

In a recent customer visit to Cloacina (located in Arroyo Grande, CA), Jay Guio, UBP OEM Sales REP, met with Troy Ellison, CEO of Cloacina LLC. Following that visit, the Cloacina Team surprised us with this vendor highlight video spotlighting the value of building a trusted partnership.  “One of the things that have impressed me with Universal Blower Pac is the fact that they are willing to work with us in regards to pushing the envelope,” says Ellison. “This showed us that they were willing to jump as high as we were being asked to jump by our clients. And it’s nice knowing someone is as equally invested in your success as you are.”

EE-PAC High Efficiency Screw Blower Walk Through and Test

In this video, Andrew Placek, Engineer and Sales Manager at Universal Blower Pac, walks through and tests the advanced features of the EE-PAC. Click here to see it!

The EE-PAC offers a low maintenance, low noise, advanced high efficiency screw blower system that delivers air efficiently across its entire operating range. This patented design is 35% more efficient than traditional PD blowers and achieves turbo blower efficiency over a 5:1 turndown, but able withstand higher pressures and temperatures to negate risk of surge or hassle with complex controls, thus ensuring reliable performance and longevity.

Turbo blowers typically only meet a 2:1 turndown before surging and have limited operating and pressure ranges as well as expensive costs due to blower failures requiring entire unit replacement. The EE-PAC features a positive displacement compressor and won’t surge, thus allowing for operation of multiple units on a single header. Unit repair is inexpensive and can be serviced from multiple sources to minimize downtime.
