CAPS Australia releases new Airman diesel air compressor

Caps Australia announces the availability of Airman diesel air compressors designed for mining contractors and mine maintenance teams who prefer to truck mount their compressors.

Part of the company’s comprehensive range of portable compressors, the compact Airman PDSF210SC-5C3 box type diesel air compressor is distributed by Caps Australia, the national leader in compressed air and power generation solutions.

Richard Sweet, Marketing Manager – Portable Products at CAPS says that Airman is the world’s largest manufacturer of diesel compressors and is well-known for its superior engineering capabilities. He adds that the new Airman PDSF210SC-5C3 is an extremely reliable, efficient and versatile unit.

Key features and benefits of the Airman PDSF210SC-5C3 diesel air compressors include a built-in aftercooler, and a water separator to remove 65 per cent of condensate, ensuring better quality downstream compressed air; auto-shutdown system to provide added user safety; low engine idle rate of 1,300 rpm for fuel efficiency and minimised component wear; box type design with cabinet style doors mounted on the side for easy maintenance access; and electric fuel and air bleed (EFPS) pump that automatically primes and bleeds the air out of the system without opening injector lines should the compressor run out of fuel, resulting in maximised uptime and reduced service calls.

The compressor design also allows the unit to be mounted on vehicles or stored in restricted spaces, making them ideal for dynamic workplaces and businesses. The robust construction of the unit features a durable steel and powder-coated finish with stainless steel hardware. Power transmission is optimised as the Yanmar 4TNV98T-ZNHK Tier 3 engine is direct-coupled to the airend.

Exceptionally quiet, with noise levels of 67 dBA (@ 7 metres), the PDSF210SC comes with a comprehensive range of standard and custom build options, including an environmental containment base, lockable battery isolator, emergency stop button, exhaust spark arrestor, fire extinguisher and air hose reel.
