Air on The Move - Compressed air for the Transit industry
We understand that the transit industry has high expectations of its vehicles, relying on them to operate hour after hour, carrying billions of tonnes of cargo and passengers each year. New legislation, regulations and evolving customer demands are changing the landscape of this sector, delivering ever-changing challenges for vehicle manufacturers. These include the ever-present need to reduce energy consumption and harmful emissions whilst still meeting load demands.
Compressed air is key to the safe and reliable operation of critical applications on most commercial vehicles. However, new hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs) and fully-electric vehicles (FEVs) demand much more of their sub-systems than current diesel counterparts. Weight, size, noise and the fuel-source have all been redefined. Meeting the demands of next generation transit vehicles.
Upgrade your compressed air technology
Technology regarded as the industry standard is now seen as too heavy, too noisy, too large and too reliant on larger capacity cooling systems. Compressed air solutions must supply more applications, whilst now consuming less energy and space. Quiet HEV and FEV engines no longer mask the sound of compressors, therefore, lower noise technologies must be utilised. These vehicles also require a smaller footprint to meet space and weight requirements
The Next Generation of Compressor Solutions
The next generation of Hydrovane transit compressors are perfectly suited to applications within modern transit vehicles. Quiet, compact and reliable, they will complement the new Hybrid and Electric vehicles being deployed to help reduce CO2 and noise pollution.
