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.
Our compact, light weight and highly reliable compressed air solutions are easily adapted to your design by our transit sector experts, ensuring optimum performance no matter what your requirements.
Our compressors are designed to deliver reliable, efficient performance hour after hour, mile after mile. Rigorous testing and design ensures you can guarantee compressed air performance.
Meeting the Demands of Next Generation Transit Vehicles
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.
No gears. No belts. Up to 100,000+ operating hours due to its simple integral design.
Delivering Energy Savings
Specific Performance and Energy Efficiency levels lower than alternative technologies. Variable flow enables optimised motor performance providing even greater savings and efficiency improvements for your vehicles.
High Quality Air
High Quality Air
Clean, dry and pulse free straight from outlet means less downstream equipment required.
Quiet as Standard
With noise levels as low as 62dB (A) a Hydrovane can be located within the adjacent cabin with no loss of passenger comfort.
Our Numbers Add Up
Our innovative compact design, clever use of materials and direct drive principles combine to reduce the overall weight, energy consumption and noise output of our Hydrovane transit compressors far below those of similar conventional package compressors.
