CompAir, part of the Gardner Denver Group, is launching a new range of portable compressors with a Stage 3B emissions compliant engine.

The DLT0705 is being upgraded to the latest emission compliance regulations. This range includes models from 180cfm to 270cfm at operating pressures from 5 to 14 bar(g).

Designed for a wide range of applications in the general construction, agriculture and materials handling markets, the new DLT0705 compressor range provides fuel savings of up 10 per cent and an overall specific energy improvement of 7-8 per cent compared with its predecessor model.

The compressor range features the Yanmar 4TNV98CT engine, which is a vertical cylinder, four-cycle, water-cooled diesel engine with direct injection and electronic regulation, producing 53.7kW maximum output at 2500 rpm.

The system features a standard diesel particulate filter (DPF) and is equipped with the new GD-4 Airend providing a free air delivery (FAD) of 7,4 cubic meters per minute at the rated speed.

The new compressor also optimises the original lightweight and quiet design of this range, with a 1200Kg towable weight, and low noise level of 98dBa.

Commenting on the launch, James Waldron at Gardner Denver said:

“This new compressor strengthens our relationship with Yanmar and provides customers with an EU emissions-compliant, portable compressor that offers very good fuel efficiency and an excellent free air delivery rating.

“The Gardner Denver portable compressor range now has both EU emission and non-emission variants suitable for other markets, all developed on the same modular design and a common machine platform. This provides optimum manufacturing efficiency helping to deliver a very competitive range.

“This latest launch further improves our market position, as Gardner Denver (CompAir) strives for a full range of emission compliant, diesel engine-driven mobile compressors for EU markets.”
