To Be Efficient AND Protect the Environment - That is the CompAir Way


CompAir has once again succeeded in developing several new products to
unveil at Bauma. The British based company with a manufacturing facility in
Germany has revised and enhanced much of its portable compressor range.
The focus of CompAir's development work is to find ways to protect the
environment whilst still producing the most highly efficient compressors
available on the market. As such, CompAir utilises the latest diesel engine
technology to reliably and accurately comply with the, now more, stringent EU
exhaust emissions standards. This innovative technology produces the optimum
level of fuel consumption, which is not only energy efficient but also
environmentally friendly and cost effective.

Environmentally friendly and efficient portable Compair compressors

CompAir is thinking about the future of the environment. Europe is a
demanding market when it comes to environmental protection. The portable
compressors of CompAir aim to meet these demands at every level - be it the
requirements for low noise levels, demanding combustion norms or the use of
risk-free materials in production.

Quality, innovation and reliability are the three pillars of CompAir's philosophy.
Many years of developing the compressor screw air end, the heart of every
compressed air machine, has provided us with the experience to be able to
offer a machine that is both economic and reliable and extremely safe to
operate. Using highly modern CNC machines and the most exact on-line laser
measuring technology, CompAir's own production sites guarantee the highest
quality manufacturing standards across the entire range of machines. Only in
this way can compact and, in particular, lightweight portable compressors be
developed. A high-value corrosion protection treatment of the chassis and a
zinc coating of important components produce long lasting portables, which
maintain their value for many years and facilitate a trouble-free working life.

CompAir's modular approach to product design ensures that the individual and
differing specification requirements from varied world markets can be easily
met. With a worldwide presence across America, Europe, Asia and Africa,
products which are compatible with those markets are fully supported by a
qualified network of trained professionals. This sales and service network
ensures genuine parts are available to maximise machine utilisation.

C14 Manually transportable portable Screw compressor
The C14 weighs just 160 kg and is easily transportable in a van or delivery
vehicle. A removable 20 litre petrol tank reduces the weight even more to 142
kg. The compact dimensions, simple wheels and a retractable towbar allow it to
be transported through average door-size openings. It is powered by a fuelefficient,
air-cooled Honda petrol engine, type GX 610 V-Twin. Both manual
and electrical starters are fitted as standard. Separate air filters for engine and
compressor guarantee long filter service life.

Portable Screw Compressor C 20 - C 30
The compressors of the range C20 - C30 are driven by a particularly quietrunning
and reduced fuel consumption Kubota engine. The high engine speed
range at low rpm's guarantees fuel savings and longer engine lifetime, helping
to save on costs whilst at the same time protecting the environment.
The various applications of these compressors, like breakers, drills, mole
operations, blowing-out, are further enhanced by integrated generators, which
can supply power for the site, lighting or electrical tools. A variety of different
chassis are available.

Unbraked models in this series weigh less than 500 kg which avoid road traffic
restrictions in certain European countries.

Portable Screw Compressors C 55-14 - C 76
These proven and tested compressors stand out for their low fuel consumption
and high efficiency. Thanks to different pressures available up to 14bar, this
compact compressor range is extremely versatile and meets many
requirements set for numerous applications e.g. sand-blasting, ice-blasting,
mole operations and drilling.

The compressors have enough room to store two hammers, picks or any other
pneumatic tools. Separate engine and compressor filters guarantee a long
service life. All of the service points are strategically located for easy access.

Portable Screw Compressors C 85-14 - C 140-9
In this widely successful range, Compair relies on the new QSB 4.5 engine
range from Cummins. These engines are fitted with electronic injection and
meet all the EU demands with regards to exhaust emissions for the foreseeable
future.

At the customer's request, Compair will continue to supply the standard
machine with the proven mechanically regulated engine for export markets
outside Europe.

Design for the toughest construction site conditions
This new series of compressors offers the highest reliability, performance and
quality of compressed air, whether it is for road building or civil engineering
applications, cable blowing, concrete spraying, spray painting, piling/pile
capping or DTH drills. This range comprises seven new single axle models.
The series C85-14 - C140-9 is particularly suitable for sand blasting work on
concrete or steel, for building demolition and special construction work such as
piling and geotechnical drilling. Specialised building contractors in these areas
today demand accurately defined air quality for both oil and water content.
Options such as aftercoolers and air line lubricators guarantee this desired air
quality.

The C8514 - C140-91 range provides 8.5-14m3 of air at operating pressures of
between 8.6-14 bar. The compressor is equipped with numerous standard
options, which, from any other manufacturer, would only be available at a great
additional cost to the customer. Thanks to the inclusion of two batteries the best
running performance can be guaranteed even in the coldest of winters. The long life cycle of these compressors are further enhanced by automatic shutdowns.

TurboScrew Compressors with new Cummins engines
Introduced six years ago, the TurboScrew series, with its unique technology for
energy efficiency and reliability, is being enhanced. The new QSB 6.7 engine
developed by Compair in conjunction with Cummins, has made this possible.
The bi-turbo technology of Compair's TurboScrew portable system makes it the
best in its class in terms of reduced fuel consumption for applications e.g. ship
refurbishment, oil-barrier, building and bridge refurbishment, dry-ice-blasting,
drilling, pneumatic lance, earth loosening, ground exploration, water well drilling.

This is achieved through the use of a second exhaust turbo charger which precompresses
the inlet air for the screw compressor stage. The patented
machine concept significantly improves the efficiency of the compressor,
particularly over everyday partial load operation. This design produces savings
of up to 30% on diesel fuel at the same volume flow rate as other similar output
machines. This unique technology provides machines which are the lightest in
their class, up to 2000 kg lighter than other comparable compressors of any
supplier.

At the customer's request, Compair will continue to supply the standard
machine with the proven mechanically regulated engine for export markets
outside Europe.

Low operating weights
CompAir also scores highly when it comes to the operating weight of the
machines. In the 3.5 to 5.0 m³/min compressor class, CompAir offers machines
weighing less than 750 kg, which eliminates the need for restrictions placed on
road transportation and driving licence classes in many European countries.
This also applies to the 2.0 to 2.5 m³/min class in a similar manner. Here, the
unbraked systems weigh no more than 500 kg, which likewise avoids road
traffic restrictions in certain European countries.

For most models Compair offers a full range of ancillary equipment
· Factory fitted or retro fitted exhaust gas particulate filters
· Closed floor panels
· Aftercoolers
· Reheaters
· Air line lubricators
· Integral electric generators
Compair continues to develop an extensive list of options for the benefit of its
customers.
