THE new series of air compressors from Sullair Australia offers a range of operating specifications that are ideal for the harsh conditions in manufacturing, construction and mining industries. Available in four capacities – 550, 600, 700 and 750 acfm – the compressors deliver a range of working pressures from 80 – 250 psig.
Several key features have been incorporated into the design of the new series, including robust highway running gear with a new single axle configuration. The engine is available as a Caterpillar C7, Tier 3 emissions compliant unit, delivering 250hp. The combination of these features has reduced the overall weight of the compressor by 1.2 tonne, providing increased manoeuvrability and portability, says Sullair Australia.
A new design for the canopy and service doors is another feature of the portable diesel compressors. The modular design of the canopy allows for sectional replacement or removal as one piece. The large service doors provide access to the fuel tank, engine, compressor and air filter, with a rear service panel to provide access to compressor cooling components.
Efficiency of the new series has been enhanced by adopting a three-stage filtration process, says Sullair Australia.
Additional improvements include the SSAM shutdown system with an annunciator module to warn the operator of high temperatures, low fuel or pressure. The control systems have been fully revised to provide real time information presented in a user friendly control panel. The new series will be available for shipment from December 2011.
