A fleet of lightweight, compact air compressors for hazardous environment operation

20th Sep 2018

We have recently supplied a fleet of lightweight, compact air compressor units for use in Zone 2 (Group II Category 3 G IIB T3) hazardous environments. The units have a performance of 400 cfm at 10 bar and can operate in ambient temperatures of 50°C. These stand-alone units feature a JCB diesel engine, a lockable control panel mounted into the container wall, and an on-board fuel tank. At the heart of the units is an Aerzen VMX 160 blower.

All the equipment is housed in a sound-attenuated DNV-certified offshore container. There is easy access through two large sets of double doors, and externally mounted fuel fill, control, and connections.

These lightweight compressors are part of our OffshoreLITE range which provides our offshore customers with pump, vacuum, and compressor units where there are platform space constraints and de-rated crane facilities.
