A hydraulic air compressor is an air compressor that’s powered by the hydraulics on a vehicle or machine. It allows operators to convert their hydraulic power into air power, ultimately equipping a vehicle or machine with both hydraulic power and air power.
A PTO driven air compressor is an air compressor that’s driven by the power take-off (PTO) of a vehicle. These innovative air compressors are mounted under the deck of the vehicle, resulting in an elegant solution that’s out of sight and out of mind (until you need it!)
Portable diesel air compressors come in numerous styles, sizes and formats. In this article, we’ll talk about the most common types of diesel-powered portable air compressors, so you can make sense of your various options.
The VMAC Multifunction power system (MF) control box does a lot more than turn your air compressor on and off. VMAC’s engineers programmed the control box to share important information with operators and crane controllers, and it therefore serves as the communication hub for your MF multi-power system.
The control box in the VMAC hydraulic air compressor is the computer that tells the compressor what to do and when to do it. Control boxes also give a voice to air compressors and allow them to share important information via the display box that can help with system maintenance, operation, and diagnosing issues.
The control box is essentially the brain of the VMAC diesel driven air compressor system. It tells the system what to do and makes decisions based on the programmed settings. The control box is also the communication hub for the air compressor, relaying important information to the operator on an “as needed” basis.
The control box plays an important role in the Direct-Transmission™ Mounted air compressor and multipower systems (DTM), as it’s used to power the system and communicate with operators and service techs. In addition, the control box monitors the air compressor system on an ongoing basis to ensure its in proper working order.
Commercial vans are becoming more popular and, frankly, we aren’t surprised. Vans are convenient, prevent theft, include more advertising space, and are weatherproof. With such strong benefits, it makes sense many savvy mobile service companies are swapping their service trucks for vans.
You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers! In this article, we’ll tell you everything you ever wanted to know about compressed air, and then some…
Tow-behind air compressors took the world by storm a few decades ago when they met a simple need: available compressed air, wherever you want it. It was a game-changer for a lot of industries. But once the novelty of tow-behind air compressors wore off, their limitations became apparent. Manufacturers began to look at innovative ways […]
