Product description

Peerless Products have a very unique design when it comes to the Diesel range of air compressors. We have a floating top plate that isn’t hard welded to the tank. We do this to assist in eliminating the vibration from the motor and the pump, limiting the vibration transfer to the air receiver reduces metal stress and less load be transferred to where it is also mounted. This is also an advantage to the user or operator as if you would like to dismount and have the tank situated as where on a vehicle build you can separate easier at no additional cost*. You then have the option of mounting the top plate (motor and Pump) to a lower centre of gravity and then the pump can be placed under the body tray. We use Yanmar diesel engines which are well used throughout Australia, these diesel engines also run a bit quieter than other brands in the market when comparing side by side. Key start engines are the only option we do in the diesel range. The conrador valve fits in perfectly with the Yanmar engine able to idle up and down when air demand is required, the air operated piston valve will automatically throttle up and down with the excess air not being required being vented out of the control valve.

Every Peerless Diesel build comes with the best suited water trap filter regulator fitted, being a unit that runs 0-145PSI or 0-175PSI, we have it covered so you can connect and start work. With that being said, we run and test every air compressor so that we know it will be in top working order when you receive delivery.

If your looking at doing a service vehicle and our standard models are not within your requirements, we are more than happy to custom build. Doing a custom build doesn’t mean that it’s going to be more expensive.

We can design and advise some really great ideas that we have used in previous designs to increase work productivity or even reduce the foot print of the overall air compressor. This means more space for tools or other equipment along with using a lift pump directly to the diesel engine. This will eliminate manually refuelling the air compressor which in turns reduces your weight of carrying extra fuel along with a hazard reduction of handling fuel.

Add a MDG15 retro box is always an added value, emergency stop, isolation switch, key start ignition and light indicator that complies for every mine site. If you’re not required to have a MDG15 box, we can extend your wiring lumen so you can fit inside your tool box, even split it so you can start your air compressor on either side of the vehicle.
