Designed for efficiency, reliability and minimal maintenance, direct drive compressors are available from 25 to 450 hp, in flows from 72 to 2,003 cfm and pressures of up to 217 psig.
Designed for efficiency, reliability and minimal maintenance, direct-drive compressors are available from 25 to 450 hp, in flows from 72 to 2,003 cfm and pressures of up to 217 psig. The compressors are engineered with an oversized airend connected directly to the motor via a maintenance-free coupling for zero-loss transmission efficiency. The air flow design reduces noise levels and provides better cooling. All units are fitted with a high-efficiency separator system for low oil-carryover.
