American Eagle Brings Electric Compressor to Market
Garner, Iowa – American Eagle is pleased to announce the release of the new 30P-E air compressor, an electrically driven air compressor. The new compressor launched today at the NTEA Work Truck Show® 2020 in Indianapolis, Indiana (Booth 3367). It will also be highlighted on a hybrid Stellar® TMAX™ 1-11 mechanics truck in Stellar Industries Booth (Central Hall, Booth C20627) at CONEXPO-CON/AGG® 2020, March 10-14 in Las Vegas.
The 30P-E reciprocating compressor is driven by a 48V electric motor and controller in lieu of a traditional hydraulic system. This allows the compressor to be paired with work trucks that are built on an electric hybrid chassis platform. Whether the work truck is a van or a traditional service body, the compressor is a great complement to provide an air source for pneumatic needs.
The compressor’s small footprint, along with its weight of 225 pounds, makes it a great addition to a hybrid work truck where higher air consumption is needed. Even with its compact size, it produces a maximum air output of 30CFM and up to 150PSI of air pressure.
Consistent with all American Eagle Air Compressors, the 30P-E comes standard with: a heavy-duty crankshaft for smooth operation and long life; stainless steel reed valves for heat resistance and longevity; flip-top lid for easy service access; and canister air filters for easy replacement during preventive maintenance.
