Gardner Denver Transport will be demonstrating the capabilities of its class leading compression systems for the commercial vehicle market on stand 5A30 at this year’s CV Show, taking place 30 April – 2 May at the NEC in Birmingham, UK.
The road tanker discharge equipment manufacturer will be highlighting is its TR20 screw compressor, which helps ensure the efficient unloading of dry bulk products. The market leading machine can be seen fitted on a DAF CF FTP 4050 truck that will be on the stand, courtesy of Gardner Denver’s long-standing customer, Whitworth Bros Ltd.
The UK leading flour milling business, who have been a loyal customer of Gardner Denver for a number of years, have specified the compressor to be fitted to a fleet of 16 new DAF tractor units. The prop-shaft driven TR20 compressor is used to unload products from the 6x2 tractor units in bulk.
The vehicle will also be fitted with a remote controlled tipping system, which allows the driver to operate the tipping tanker from a safe location whilst discharging the flour at a customer’s site. Gardner Denver work closely with their customer base, to ensure that their all safety requirements are met.
The market leading TR20 screw compressor provides flexible airflow, which means it can discharge the majority of bulk powder products from a road tanker. The solution for Whitworth Bros Ltd. provides airflow of 750 m3/h, ensuring flour products can be discharged safely and efficiently. Visitors to stand 5A30 will be able to see how the equipment is installed, discover the many operating benefits of the compressor and ask Gardner Denver’s team of transport experts the installation on display.

Alongside the TR20, Gardner Denver are also exhibiting an IVECO Daily 40C14N V CNG van from Cadent Gas, fitted with Gardner Denver’s latest DLG Drive Line compressor and generator technology, will also be available on the stand.
The vehicle is the first CNG-fuelled IVECO Daily van in the UK to feature on-board power. Meeting the latest market demands, the system is lightweight, compact, quiet and easy to use, delivering 100 CFM (cubic foot per minute) at 6 bar and 80 CFM at 7 bar.
With Cadent Gas responsible for maintaining the largest gas distribution network in the UK, vans fitted with Gardner Denver’s on-board power technology will use the energy generated by the compressor to operate paving breakers, air lances and pneumatic mole equipment, while the 6 kVA generator will be used to power fusion welders, pumps and other hand tools.
Andrew Savage, UK Highways & Utilities Sales Manager, explains: “With new government legislature coming into effect, Gardner Denver saw an opportunity to install their on-board power units onto specific vans. Taking advantage of new weight restrictions for residential parking, this innovation allows approximately 500kg greater carrying capacity* for employees to response to emergency calls, and conforms to the latest emission standards. We’re very proud of what we’ve designed, and can’t wait to discuss these technologies in more detail at CV Show 2019.”
