Affordable, super-quiet compressors for shops

Thursday 22nd March 2007

Leading compressed air products and systems specialist, Thorite, has launched 2 new super-quiet air compressors from Whispair, which are ideal for retail use.

A variety of high street outlets require compressed air, but it must be produced as quietly as possible in locations such as heel bars (for pneumatic staple guns) and picture framers (to power underpinners).

Fortunately, both Whispair models produce around 40dB(A) when working, compared to normal conversational noise levels of around 64dB(A).

Model SIL309 features a 0.18 hp motor (0.13 kW), a tank size of 9 litres, yet only costs £204.00 + VAT.

The larger model SIL5024 has a 0.5 hp power source (0.35 kW), a tank capacity of 24 litres and is priced at just £355.00 + VAT.

The compressors are available with next day delivery throughout the UK from Thorite's National Distribution Centre (freephone 0800 034 5850), from any of the company's eight regional Sales and Service Centres in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Tyneside, or via the Thorite Direct on-line shop at
