The benefits of using compressed air power tools have long since been known in the automotive and commercial field vehicle workshop environment. However, if the vehicles you need to maintain are in remote field locations, then you not only require the speed and efficiency compressed air power tools provide, but also compact transportable air compressors, powerful enough to operate all the tools and equipment.
Factair has worked alongside the MoD for the last 20 years developing and supplying compressed air operated maintenance equipment for their ever-changing needs. Factair has an extensive range of diesel portable driven compressors, together with the associated power tools and accessories. Recent projects for the MoD include:
VO4DM MKII & MKIII Field Maintenance Compressor
This compact mobile diesel driven rotary vane compressor provides a convenient source of compressed air for a wide variety of applications. Designed to operate in a range of climate conditions, these units have uprated intake filtration and aftercooler. The VO4DM MKIII also includes a compressed-air driven vacuum pump
ideal for tent deflation.
