A more efficient air end allows Compair Holman's 2000 series compressors to use smaller engines than before and cut fuel consumption by 11 per cent.Designed on a modular basis, the three smaller models use the same axles and canopies and share a number of parts which has cut the number of components by 43 per cent across the range.This slashes the spares stock required by a user, and the compressors are also said to be easier to maintain.An in-line oil lubrication system is offered on all models and this is said to greatly increase tool life.Four models are currently offered, with capacities ranging from 3.6-7.3 cu m/min of air, and a 3 cu m/min unit is at the prototype stage. The compressors meet European safety legislation and have low operating noise levels. CONSTRUCTION NEWS
