Sullair, an industry leader in innovative compressed air solutions since 1965, announced its new OFD1550 oil-free portable air compressor at The Rental Show this week.
The OFD1550 represents the latest solution in the ever-expanding Sullair oil free portfolio. As more customers seek options for sensitive compressed air needs – including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, electronics and more –products are needed for dedicated oil-free plant air and back-up oil free air.
“The OFD1550 fills a strong customer need,” said Russell Warner, vice president of rental & infrastructure sales for Sullair. “With Sullair’s growing focus in oil-free air, having options to provide back-up plant air is critical. This compressor fits that growing need – providing a solution for our distributors and rental customers to satisfy more of their customer demands.”
“Compressors designed for back-up plant air must stand up to the rigors of continuous operation,” said Friedmar Rumpel, global vice president of product and program management for Sullair. “In designing this product no detail was too small to maximize reliable and durable performance. The engineering completed on the OFD has resulted in a truly innovative air flow package design to provide optimal performance and cooling under various load and ambient situations.”
The Sullair OFD1550 is assembled in the United States and provides 1550 cfm of Class 0 oil-free air per ISO 8573-1 at 125 psi. Providing the power behind the unit is a tier 4 final diesel engine with the latest in emissions technology driving a durable two-stage Sullair oil-free air end. The Sullair oil-free air end includes rotors specifically designed for oil free operation and coated with FDA-approved food-grade PTFE to help resist corrosion and extend air end life.
