ImageSullair Corp. introduced the 1100e, 1500e and 1800e encapsulated series of compressors to its established line of industrial air compressors. The compressors offer 15-, 20- and 25-horsepower capability. The compressors are available with Sullair’s Variable Speed Drive (VSD) that can efficiently adjust to changes in air demand, says the company. With the VSD, these compressors deliver greater energy efficiency, improved operating consistency and lower lifecycle costs, says the company. Sullair’s compressors also incorporate many features that reduce noise levels. The air-end and motor are mounted on rubber isolators, intake and exhaust louvers have been insulated and every machine comes standard with a fully insulated enclosure. This allows Sullair’s 1100e, 1500e and 1800e compressors to operate at noise levels as low as 66 dba, says the company.
