Construction projects rely on air compressors


Sullair has set a global standard for air compressors based on rotary screw technology since they produced their first one in 1965. The tradition continues today with the Sullair Mid-Range Series Tier 4 Final Portable Lubricated Rotary Screw air compressor. 

Used in applications ranging from abrasive sand and water blasting to cable blowing, pneumatic hand tool use and drilling, the Mid-Range Series is half the size and weight of Sullair’s comparable legacy model and even more versatile. Rotary screw technology and Sullair’s unique electronic spiral valve innovations let Mid-Range Series operators easily adjust between 100 to 200 psi (6.9 to 13,8 bar) and between 800 to 1100 cfm to cover a wide range of applications without switching between different air compressors. 

The Mid-Range compressors are powered by a power-dense, 225 kW (302 hp) Perkins® 1206J-E70TTA engine that meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards while meeting noise requirements for metropolitan, suburban and rural areas.

“When compared to other engine manufacturers, Perkins has significantly advanced technology,” said Jerel Cole, Sullair’s senior project manager for portable products. 

“They have been able to make engines that have higher power density, which allows smaller engines that are more efficient and easier to install.” 

And, with a Perkins engine in the Mid-Range Series, all customers have to do when they need preventive service or maintenance is turn to the nationwide Perkins network for fast service and easy-to-order parts.

“The heart of the compressor is the powertrain,” Jerel added. “Sullair is known for having efficient and long-lasting products and Perkins is known for its robust and reliable engines.”
