Thorite's new Diamond Performance compressors

Monday 13th March 2006

Leading compressed air products and pneumatic systems suppliers, Thorite, announces the launch of new, direct drive, "Performance" portable compressors, designed to combine low prices with high levels of efficiency, output and convenience.

The new machines augment Thorite’s own brand Diamond compressors and are instantly recognisable by their bright red, rather than dark blue air receivers.

Four 13amp/230 volt powered models are offered in the Diamond Performance lubricated range, with a starting price of only £89.95 for a 1.5hp/116psi unit, rising to a 3.0hp/145psi machine at £299.00, plus a 1.5hp/116psi 110volt model which costs £169.00 and meets current NICEIC regulations for on-site power.

Two oil-free, 13amp/230 volt models complete the new line up: the 1.5hp/116psi compressor costs just £145.00, whilst the 2hp/116psi unit is £169.00 with a 24 litre tank or £189.00 with a 50 litre capacity.

All seven Diamond Performance direct drive compressors are detailed on Thorite’s website at

They are also available for next day delivery from the company’s National Distribution Centre on Freephone 0800 034 5850.
