Genair expands their hire fleet


Genair, a leading specialist air compressor rental company, has added a line of Atlas Copco XAHS 408 air compressors to their hire fleet.

These diesel powered, Stage V compliant sets, deliver 850cfm @ 170psi at ambient temperatures between -25°C up to +50°C.

With a super quiet noise level of just 74dB(A) @ 7 metres and protected in a rugged, ‘rental quality’ canopy, these brand new units are ideally suited for use in all situations and particularly in areas governed by emission controls.

The XAHS 408 compressor boasts compact dimensions of 5731 (Length) x 1987 (Width) x 2058mm (Height) and weigh just 3500kg. Their built-in after cooler and water separator will eliminate up to 70% of moisture. This will help with delivering superior air quality for improved performance.

With a handy 270 litre fuel tank, featuring direct feed capability, the air compressors will consume fuel, on full load, at 42 litres per hour. There is also 60 litre Ad Blue tank, for cleaner operation.

For operators working in sensitive environments, such as oil refineries, the XAHS 408 sets can be fitted with an inlet shut down valve and spark arrestors.

“We currently manage a fleet of diesel, electric and oil-free compressors from 260 to 960cfm,” explained David Timmins, GenAir’s, managing director. “However, we were aware that we needed to introduce these new sets to enhance our range, helping to bridge the gap between our 600 and 900 cfm models.”

They operate from three strategically placed depots; Motherwell, Slough and in the West Midlands.
