Gardner Denver’s TX01 series is specifically designed for the electric bus and truck market. E compressors – pneumatic equipment developed specifically for electric drives – in this range deliver market-leading performance in a compact and lightweight package.
All critical air functions are covered, including breaking, suspension, kneeling and door operation. The TX01 range of compressors are also capable of meeting the demands of hybrid, fully electric and vehicles running on alternative fuels like hydrogen cells.
This is the latest evolution in TX series – a range of compressors specifically designed for the electrified bus and truck market. Building on over 12 years of dedicated electric vehicle knowledge, the TX01 delivers powerful performance in the most compact and lightweight package available on today’s market.
Some might ask why this new product is necessary given Gardner Denver’s existing range. While these products continue to serve customers across the world, the market is now moving at such speed that newer, more efficient designs are needed each year to keep pace with the latest challenges. Both OEMS and operators, for example, are under increasing pressure to implement more environmentally friendly ways to travel. Hybrid, fully electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles are driving society towards zero-carbon the significant emissions cuts needed along the way will only be possible with the support of cutting-edge ancillary systems.
This is where the TX01 comes into its own.
The TX02 e compressor is ideal for operators of electric truck and buses. See below for a full technical specification.
Compressed air is critical for pneumatic brakes, suspension and door operation systems among other applications in larger commercial vehicles. It’s also needed for kneeling systems on commercial buses. Many compressors available today are based on older technology, which is not only noisier and heavier but also reliant on a larger capacity cooling system. These older products cost far more to run and maintain when compared to the more efficient TX01.
Electric vehicles highlight the impact of sound from other important vehicle components. Compressors are no different, and poorly designed packages can have a negative impact on both driver and passenger comfort. Loud equipment can also affect residents, especially when refuse collections are carried out using electric vehicles during unsociable hours. How can manufacturers respond to this challenge while still maintaining optimal performance? The TX01 solves this problem with proven rotary vane technology and guaranteed pulse-free delivery which eliminates unwanted vibrations. Despite being capable of running at variable speeds between 1400 to 3500rpm, the unit can deliver a free field noise level of 69dBA and below at one-metre distance. This means it can be installed adjacent to the passenger cabin with no loss of comfort. These kinds of incremental changes may sound small but have a profound impact on overall performance when out on the road.
Due to its modular design, installation can occur with minimal disruption to your operations, with TX01’s improved software and electrical capabilities allowing it to work seamlessly with a vehicle’s architecture. The TX01 is reliable by design, and our engineers have ensured the unit is simple to maintain in the field.
TX series compressors are versatile and able to rise to different challenges in the field. Variable flow rate means a wide range of applications can be accommodated without any impact on performance. This alongside Gardner Denver’s bespoke approach leaves no job beyond reach.
Our leading engineering teams design our products to be easily servicable and calculate our maintenance intervals to maximise uptime whilst ensuring our solutions remain at peak efficiency for years of service. We also highly encourage and implement a safety stock system nearby to minimise interruptions to service, supported by our global network of strategic partners. ‘We keep you moving’ is not just a strapline but our promise to you.
