Universal Compressed Air to Install a State-of-the-Art Blower System for Waste Services Provider


Southeast, USA, February 6, 2024 – In a strategic move to enhance environmental sustainability and operational efficiency, Universal Compressed Air (UCA) proudly announces it will install a brand new, state-of-the-art Blower System for a major waste services provider in the Southeast. UCA will own, operate, and maintain the modularized Blower System which will contain all equipment and instruments under a 5-year contract term. 

The system will be capable of producing between 15,000 and 25,000 scfm of low-pressure air for wastewater pond aeration. The new blowers will be installed in place of the existing units one-by-one in order for production to continue during the construction and commissioning period. A redundancy philosophy is applied such that no one instrument or piece of equipment can cause a system shutdown. This installation work will be coordinated with the customer to avoid production interruptions. 

“UCA is grateful to have the opportunity to work on this project,” said Rick Kowey, Executive Vice President and COO. “The new system’s advanced capabilities will not only enhance wastewater pond aeration but also contribute to substantial cost savings over the contract term. UCA continues to develop innovative solutions that benefit both our operations and the future of the environment.”

The new system will provide estimated savings of over $1 million over the 5-year contract term.


UCA engineers, designs, builds, owns, operates, and maintains complete systems for the worry-free supply of high-quality compressed air as a utility to a variety of industries, and provides for financially guaranteed performance & reliability, energy savings, capital preservation, and reduced environmental impact – all with a predictable, guaranteed monthly fee over a long-term agreement. This allows Customers to focus on what they do best.
