A new sliding vane air compressor can cut offloading time by as much as 40%, according to maker Ingersoll Rand. The GHH Rand SV 120 uses oil-free sliding vane technology to deliver 30% more air flow, the company said. Features include a water-protected compression chamber to reduce unscheduled off-road downtime, and an optimized volume flow to significantly improve product discharge time and reduce noise contamination and engine fuel consumption. www.ingersollrand.com
