Compressed air on the back of truck

Featuring a compact, rugged design and extended service intervals, the 8 Series Utility portable compressor range has been specially engineered and developed by Atlas Copco for secure integration into utility trucks and other OEM applications in the mining and construction sectors.
Ian van der Walt, sales manager at Atlas Copco Power Technique dealer, Airlif Compressors, explains that the mining sector uses mobile service trucks on their plants to attend to breakdowns on mobile equipment. “Portable air compressors mounted onto these trucks supply the compressed air to pneumatic tools required to complete repairs.
“With a 10% smaller footprint on average compared with other compressors, the unit’s compact, generator-like box shape design fits easily on the back of the utility truck. In addition, the lightweight compressors can be lifted and mounted onto these vehicles,” says Ian
Easy-to-open panels, easy-to-access components and no special tools required, enables excellent serviceability of the Utility range. Added to this, with service intervals of up to 1 500 hours compared with the standard 250 hours for comparable units, customers can enjoy up to six times more uptime and productivity.
Atlas Copco products are engineered and not assembled which is one of the reasons why the Utility range is the best-fit portable, flexible compressed air solution,” Ian concludes.
