Ingersoll-Rand offers its rental customers the mid-range compressor line with a newly designed air end that requires less horsepower for operation. The CE128 air end is easier on the compressor's engine and allows for greater fuel efficiency. The VHP 300 WIR, with 200 psi, is suitable for drilling, dry ice blasting, pipeline testing and fiber-optics cable installation. The HP 365 WIR, with 150 psi, and the XP 375 WIR, with 125 psi, can be used for painting and abrasive blasting operations. The P425 WIR, rated at 100 psi, is designed for drilling with multiple tools or small crawlair drills and jobsites where more volume is needed.

Fort Gratiot, Mich.-based Marc Dutton Irrigation services thousands of customers in a six-week period, winterizing their sprinkler lines to prevent freeze damage to pipes. Dutton says he has been particularly satisfied with the performance and longevity of Ingersoll-Rand air compressors.

Hitachi Power Tools

The 8-gallon electric wheelbarrow compressor, Model EC189, features a 1.5 hp, UL-listed, single stage, industrial electric motor and is designed for heavy use. Its 8-gallon capacity allows it to maintain enough air so that multiple tools can be used with just one compressor. The pump on the EC189 has an aluminum head and cast-iron cylinder crankcase to promote a cooler running, more durable compressor. A 10-inch flywheel provides extra cooling to ensure continuous operation. Other features include a stainless steel braded discharge hose and a ball-bearing mounted crank-shaft.

The Compressor, Dryer & Filter model features a complete package necessary for providing cool, dry, clean air. The package is designed for the automotive and industrial markets. The compact design compressor comes with starter, air-cooled oil cooler/aftercooler, air dryer and inline filter to eliminate moisture and contaminants. It is mounted on an air receiver with protective devices for high temperature and high pressure. Two versions of this model are available — an open style for easier maintenance and servicing, or an enclosed version that reduces noise decibels. Both versions and packages provide the same amount of volume and capacity.

Mike Warn, owner of MJ2 Racing LLC, Aurora, Ore., chose this unit because it was quiet enough to operate inside. In addition the unit is easy to work around, he says.

MMD Equipment

The AirmanPDF 185S air compressor features a specially designed Nissan diesel engine for increased performance and reliability. The engine idles as low as 1,300 rpm to increase fuel economy and reduce wear. It is directly coupled to the air end by a fiber gear coupler for improved power transmission. The swirl chamber design and vertical glow plugs give quick starting and an electric fuel primer and air-bleed pump automatically primes and bleeds air from the system without opening injector lines after a no-fuel condition, reducing downtime and service calls.

Scott Wistar, vice president of Wistar Equipment, Carneys Point, N.J., lists four features that distinguish the Airman compressor: it automatically primes, eliminating most service calls; it features a reliable fuel gauge as standard equipment; and he has never experienced a coupling failure or a failure of the oil separator element.
