Fiac compressor range delivers more performance

Fiac compressor range delivers more performance

Friday 2nd October 2009

The UK's biggest supplier of compressed air products and process systems, Thorite, has launched an extended range of FIAC Belt Drive stationary compressors for smaller industrial and automotive users.

The 4 hp AF18/200S is significant as its 200 litre air receiver produces probably the highest output of Free Air Delivered (FAD) at 13.2 CFM, from a single phase electrical supply utilising a single pump. This makes the compressor the ideal choice for busy garages & workshops with no 3 phase 400 volt power.

Even greater air output is available from two tandem compressor models which both feature twin compressor units mounted on one air tank: AF28/250S has two 3 hp compressors and a FAD of 18 CFM, while AMT80/250S has two 4 hp compressors and a FAD of 26.4 CFM.

Users with 3 phase power can now select from 3 machines in FIAC's AF range rated at 5.5, 7.5 and 10 hp, with FADs from 16 to 29 CFM and generous 270 litre air receivers. The substantial volumes of compressed air produced by these models mean problems coping with peak demand become a thing of the past.

Each model features auto stop/start, sturdy cast iron cylinder block, maximum working air pressure of 145 psi, CE 87/404 certified receiver and a high quality, low-bake paint finish.

The extended FIAC compressor range can be viewed at and most machines are available for next day FREE delivery within the UK mainland from Thorite's National Distribution Centre (freephone 0800 034 5850).
