|For continuous use applications|
|The Iroquois K100 rotary screw compressor from DV Systems Inc., an air compressor systems manufacturer based in Barrie, Ont., operates at a 100% duty cycle and is well suited for continuous-use applications where reliable, dry, clean air is required.
The 100-hp unit delivers 463 scfm at 100 psi and an integrated, modular design makes the Iroquois a compact, quiet (at 75 dBA) system that provides high-capacity air delivery and stable system pressure.
Variable speed, direct drive technology provides operating flexibility while optimizing energy consumption.
Also in the product line-up is the heatless, regenerative desiccant air dryer for sensitive applications requiring clean, dry and contaminant-free compressed air. The ETC catalytic converter actively oxidizes hydrocarbons into water and carbon dioxide for pharmaceutical, food and beverage and electronics industries applications.
|Portable units save energy|
|Comairco has put its portable All Weather Air (AWA) compressors in insulated, self-contained packages for placement wherever space is an issue. Six models come in sizes from 254 to 320 cm high and lengths from 335 to 823 cm. They’re for use inside or outside (in temperatures ranging from -40 to 49 degrees C) and they run on electricity making them cheaper to operate than diesel portables. The heavy duty, sound-attenuated enclosure with easy access doors has forklift pockets for easy movement and placement. Controls are fully automated and circuit breakers are built-in. All models are either variable speed drive or fixed speed. Comairco, which provides air compressor systems from operations in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, also offers optional remote monitoring. The controllers come in different screen sizes, they’re web accessible and have Modbus Ethernet capability. They feature pressure and temperature alarms, a 24 VDC power supply and they’re programmable to customer specs.
|Vacuum with more capacity|
|EXAIR’s 110 gallon heavy duty Dry Vac System is a rugged, industrial duty vacuum cleaner that sucks up large volumes of dry materials. A higher capacity drum requires fewer changes.
The compressed air-powered vacuum has no motors or impellors to clog or wear out, making it suitable for the clean-up of abrasive materials such as steel shot, garnet, metal chips and sand. It runs at a quiet 82 dBA (half the noise of electric vacuums) and surrounding air is kept clean by the 0.1 micron filter bag that traps dusty particles.
It comes with a 10-ft. static resistant hose, 20-ft. compressed air hose, shutoff valve, pressure gauge, aluminum tools, tool holder, drum dolly and a 110 gal. drum.
Exair is a manufacturer compressed-air products based in Cincinnati.
