Vanair introduces VP1513 open frame air compressor


Vanair  (Michigan City, Indiana) announced the all-new VP1513 open frame air compressor with an industry-first digital controller and ¾ inch steel frame.

The digital controller serves as an operator on duty the entire time the compressor is functioning, while automatically recording the machine’s every function. Gone are the days of having to worry about machine shutdown due to overheating. The controller will not only alert operators to routine maintenance scheduling, but also safely monitor the drilling and alert the drillers before a potential shutdown situation, eliminating downtime during the day. Plus, no more scrolling is needed; all of your much-needed information is on one main screen. Simply adjust the air volume, pressure, RPM and engine rating with the tip of your finger. Fully enclosed for maximum protection, the 12 inch digital controller with analog fields is easily seen in both the daytime as well as the nighttime. 

“At Vanair, we listened to what our customers wanted, and this is it. The digital controller is a game changer for the industry, and we are the only ones to have it. It’s just like having another operator right there with you constantly monitoring the drilling process. Plus, all the important information they need is right there on the main screen. They will no longer have to scroll and search for what they want to see,” said Greg Kokot, president, Vanair

Equipped with a heavy-duty ¾ inch steel frame, the 1500 CFM 350 PSI open frame air compressor will withstand the rigors of daily work, lasting longer and giving you the performance you’ve come to expect from Vanair. The compressor features a Cat® C18 ACERT™ Industrial Tier-3 Flex rated diesel engine, one multi-range, user-friendly electronic regulator, a high-temp cooling system with an Ambient maximum operating temperature between 130-140º F enabling it to be used in high-heat environments without shutting down, and a low 1-4 ppm oil carry-over for cleaner worksites.
