Remote online monitoring by our team
With our exclusive ManagAIR® hardware and software, we are in continuous contact with the DirectAIR site. This enables us to greatly improve the reliability of the system by having ManagAIR inform us of problem areas before they become critical — a predictive maintenance approach that significantly improves reliability.

Superior energy efficiency
We equip our DirectAIR facilities with the most energy efficient equipment and controls available today to provide significant energy savings over your current system. Typical energy savings range between 25-50%.

Comprehensive preventive maintenance
The entire concept of DirectAIR revolves around delivering 100% reliable compressed air systems. This is accomplished by first installing the most dependable equipment available, then providing the highest level of preventive maintenance and continuously monitoring the equipment through our exclusive ManagAIR system.

Stress-free commitment
As a DirectAIR customer, you only need to provide the necessary land and utility hook ups. Then PK Controls supplies, installs, operates, and maintains your new air compressor system. A monthly fee is charged based on the customer’s compressed air consumption, with billing similar to what a manufacturer gets from their electrical power supplier. Think of what your company can do with the capital dollars you won’t be spending on air compressors!

Testimonial: Flowserve Corporation
“Before DirectAIR, we experienced moisture problems and low air pressure issues. The struggle to regulate our air pressure was a constant concern and the damage to our plant pneumatic equipment was a problem. A weight has been lifted knowing that DirectAIR is delivering all of our plant air. We’d never go back to buying compressors again!”
