Gardner Denver reputation for excellence on display at ConExpo-Con/Agg

During the ConExpo-Con/Agg trade show at the beginning of March, Gardner Denver joined more than 2,500 exhibitors booking the entire Las Vegas Convention Center to connect with an estimated 140,000 visitors. The largest event in the North American construction industry, ConExpo also ranks among the largest trade shows on the continent in any industry.

The ConExpo crowd isn't just large - it's also savvy, with attendees looking for industry-specific benefits from any equipment they find on display. With the offerings at the stand this year, Gardner Denver demonstrated its proven ability to deliver these benefits, including:

Optimized conveying

Relying on a novel operational principle for pneumatic conveying blower applications, the 36 psig CycloBlower HE rotary screw blower has a track record of improved cost efficiency over lower-pressure straight lobe blowers. Also ideal for all conveying applications - including dense phase - are:

  • the HeliFlow blower series, which utilizes a revolutionary twisted tri-lobe design to provide the lowest pressure pulse levels available on the lobe blower market;
  • the CycloBlower HE helical screw blower, whose patented, game-changing design lowers energy costs;
  • the IQ and IQ-HE positive displacement blower packages, which include an AirSmart controller for critical component monitoring.

Configuration flexibility

Three air compressor ranges on display -- the Electra Saver II G2 (rotary screw), the V-Series (rotary vane), and the R-Series (reciprocating) -- are specifically designed for fast, easy configuration to suit a range of construction application requirements.

Long lifespan

V-Series and the Electra Saver II G2 compressors feature slow, fixed-speed 1800 rpm designs that minimize wear-and-tear and maximize equipment lifespan.

Low-noise and Small-size footprint

V-Series compressors, Cyclosaver rotary screw blowers, HeliFlow blowers, and the IQ/IQ-HE blower packages all perform with extremely low noise levels. Additionally, the Hydrapak hydraulic drive conditioning system is a fully-integrated, all-in-one solution that saves significant space where it's needed most.

Dependable operation

The Electra Saver II G2 relies on large bearings and airends to withstand the harshest of conditions, the V-Series offers direct drive reliability, and the R-Series' gasket-less design offers superior dependability. All three compressors are backed by warranties of 5 - 10 years. And the EK100 oil-flooded rotary screw air-end was designed to minimize downtime and ease maintenance with a fully integrated fine air/oil separator, thermostatic mixing valves, and filters for oil and air.

Jason Costigan, Industrials Group Product Manager representing Gardner Denver at ConExpo, summed up his opinion on what drew attendees to the stand: "I think the solutions we had on display at ConExpo are in the sweet spot between innovation and proven performance. For each of our products, we could show how it is on the cutting edge and then turn around and point to the positive results it's been getting in the field. I think that combination really gets people's attention in the construction industry."
