BendPak has introduced a full line of air compressors made in the USA. The new Patriot Series offers efficient, industrial-strength air compressors for any shop or service facility.
“While the BendPak name is synonymous with commercial-grade car lifts, we have a long history of manufacturing a range of tough, reliable shop equipment,” says Jeff Kritzer, BendPak executive vice president. “We’re proud to introduce the Patriot Series of air compressors that offer our customers the same high quality and well-thought-out design as BendPak lifts.”
Quiet efficiency is the name of the game with Patriot air compressors, the company says. Each unit features an energy-efficient motor and large reciprocating cylinder heads running at slower speeds to provide powerful, cool, and energy-efficient compressed air. A rugged 0.5-in., anti-vibration pad keeps noise to a reasonable 75 dB. There’s a Patriot air compressor to meet the needs of virtually any commercial shop or home garage thanks to the available power options including a choice of 5 hp, 7.5 hp or 10 hp motors.
Additionally, along with the efficient motor speeds, Patriot Series air compressors keep their cool through the use of body cooling fins, a built-in intercooler, and a precision-balanced flywheel with fan blades providing additional forced air cooling for durability and long life, the company says.
Patriot air compressors also feature rugged, high-quality Manchester tanks that are ASME certified, and cast-iron pump and heads with splash lubrication to withstand heat without warping, unlike aluminum cylinders with pressed-in sleeves. BendPak adds valve maintenance is easy due to the dependable disc-type valves that are accessible without even having to remove the cylinder head.
