GenAir has announced that the environmental qualities of its emission free, All Weather All Electric Air Compressor have been formally recognised by The Green Organisation.
The Green Organisation is an international, independent, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.
Three senior representatives from GenAir have been invited to a presentation ceremony, hosted at the Houses of Parliament on 25th November, where they will receive their award.
These individually designed compressors have a working pressure of 10 –190psi with a maximum free air delivery of up to 400cfm. With a whisper quiet noise level of just 67dB (A) and protected in a fully weatherproof canopy, these brand new units are perfect for use in all situations and particularly in areas governed by emission and noise rules.
There are many advantages for using an electric compressor as opposed to a diesel powered set. Because most diesel sets can only run for about 12 hours before they need refuelling, their fuel levels will require constant monitoring. This can distract an operator away from more important tasks. As Genair’s electric compressors run entirely free from fuel, the environmental damage from diesel spillage is completely eliminated.
Furthermore, a diesel engine’s filters must be replaced every 500 hours – that’s every three weeks for a project that runs for 24 hours. Electric compressors can be left alone for up to 4,000 hours before maintenance is needed, giving them a significant advantage on all major programmes. They continue to operate in extreme temperatures from minus 25º to plus 50Cº and their built-in after cooler and water separator will eliminate up to 70% of moisture. This will help with delivering superior air quality for improved performance.
Registered to ISO 9001, the Genair management team has a collective 140 years’ experience in the compressed air markets, with fully qualified service technicians and ADR drivers. They supply equipment extensively throughout the UK and overseas.
