For more than 145 years, Ingersoll Rand has been the world leader in air compressors and air system accessories. We understand that needs and requirements for air systems and the business demands that you face every day. Rising energy costs and reduced margins require increases reliability and efficiency from not only your air compressor, but your entire air system. It's the complete system -- the piping, filters, dryers, drains, hoses, valves, and point-of-use-tools.
Choosing Your Air Compressor
Depending on how much compressed air is needed, depends on how big of an air compressor you will need. We offer Single-Stage and Two-Stage air compressors. Single-stage models compress air to a final pressure in one stroke. They generally are used for pressures between 70 and 90 psi (max. pressure to 135 psi). Two-Stage model compresses air to an intermediate pressure in the first stage, removes heat compression through an intercooler, and compresses air to a final pressure in a second compression stage. Two-Stage compressors are more efficient and are generally used for pressures above 100 psi (max. pressure to 175 psi).
Are you looking for a compressor that helps you save space and money? You should think about investing in a Rotary Screw Compressor. These compressors can handle jobs that need a higher psi level than what reciprocating compressors can push out. Rotary Screw compressors range from 100 psi to 200 psi. Besides producing a higer psi, it eliminates up to 80% of traditional installation cost of individual air treatment equipment. These compressors come equip with an dryer, control panel, oil separator, dual filters (general purpose and high-efficiency), and condensate drain system.
Air Compressor Accessories
Moisture: Did you know that over a summer month, you’ll have to remove at least 150 gallons of unwanted moisture in your air system due to high temperatures? Moisture wreaks havoc on your equipment, leading to unplanned downtime. Excess moisture in your air system can grow bacteria, lead to corrosion in piping and various compressor issues. Having no moisture in your lines is especially important when it comes to painting vehicles. When you have moisture in your compressed air system, your paint can start to bubble. To solve your moisture issues, you should invest in refrigerated dryer. Having a refrigerated dryer installed to your system will clean up your lines and keep your operations running efficiently. A refrigerated dryer is the standard choice if you are looking for a low maintenance solution.
Air Filters: Let's be serious, an autoshop isn't the cleanest place. There is constantly dust in the air and various oils being used. When your compressor is running, it is collecting the dust in the shop and pushing it through your compressed air system. A compressor with dust particles, oil and water droplets only make the compressor to work harder, raising your energy costs. With our coalescing air filters will save energy and protect your compressors and tools from harmful contaminants by effectively removing solid particles, water, oil, and aerosols from compressed air.
Lubricants: Air compressors or components overheating and air leakage... You can successfully avoid these issues by adding lubricant and monitoring levels in your compressor are extremely important in making sure that your air compressor is running as efficient as possible. Our All Season Select lubricant is a synthetic, all-temperature blend designed to increase efficiency, reduce wear, and prevent carbon build-up. It performs four times longer than petroleum-based lubricants. It is recommended 2,000 hours of service between lubricatns change-out under normal operating conditions.
