Portable compressor manufacturer Compair has launched its first ever electric-driven portable compressor.

Described by the company as lightweight, its 750Kg e-Portable Elec50 mobile compressor is based on CompAir’s C50 portable compressor design.

Powered by an IE3 electric motor and designed to be used in noise protected and low emission zone city centre locations and urban construction projects, the compressor is said to offer up to 50% energy savings compared to conventional diesel models.

CompAir said maintenance costs of the unit are reduced by up to 36% compared to the diesel counterpart thanks to the reduced demand on filtration.

The new Delcos Controller with optional iConn data feed means operators can monitor and alter performance parameters and includes GPS tracking.

Flexible Power Management module also enables operators to plug the compressor into the site’s static electrical point.

Other features include a newly designed air filter, after cooler, controller and a variable speed drive to help reduce electricity consumption.

Vince Blower, sales development leader & portable product manager EMEIA said, “Urban construction projects are being driven to reduce emissions in line with Net Zero targets - and using our new Elec50 mobile compressor can help significantly with carbon and energy savings from on-site compressed air generation.

“Lightweight and easy to tow, the machine offers all the benefits customers expect from compressors in the CompAir portable range, now with up to 50 per cent energy and 36 per cent service cost savings.”
