VMAC has upped the ante in the mobile air compressor market. This high performance, gas engine driven, rotary screw compressor has a price point comparable to its reciprocating gas drive competitors, but with reliability, durability and performance that is synonymous with VMAC rotary screw compressors. This marks the first time a rotary screw air compressor has been able to compete in the smaller CFM gas drive market, according to the manufacturer.
The Subaru EX40 14HP gasoline OHC engine is covered by Subaru’s 5 Year Warranty; the rotary screw compressor is backed by VMAC’s Lifetime Warranty
“By following LEAN business practices, using state of the art machinery, modern engineering and manufacturing methods and showing a passion to deliver the best value to customers, VMAC’s engineering and manufacturing teams have developed a price competitive product that we are so confident in, we are backing it for life,” said Tod Gilbert, VMAC vice president product development.
At a continuous 30 CFM @ 100 PSI (tested to ASME standards), it provides enough power to get most day to day jobs done only faster because the RAPTAIRG30 rotary screw compressor is rated for 100 percent duty cycle, meaning it never stops producing the air that is required. With VMAC’s WHASP tank technology, both the air and oil are cooled in this fully integrated package, eliminating the need for bulky accessories. And with the constant and smooth air delivery of the VMAC rotary screw air end, most customers will not require a large cumbersome receiver tank, according to the manufacturer.
Its small footprint only takes up 20.3 in. W by 33.5 in. L (51.5 by 85 cm) on the vehicle. With a height of only 21 in. (53 cm) and weight of only 205 lbs. (93 kg), the RAPTAIRG30 is at least 50 percent lighter and 50 percent smaller than comparable gas drive air compressors, which allows it to easily mount with 4 bolts on the top of the side pack of a service body. This creates space for additional tools and equipment.
