VMAC has launched the Underhood 30 Air Compressor for the Ford Transit EcoBoost commercial van. This Van Series air compressor offers up to 30 CFM at 100% duty cycle, designed for operators using air tools for light-duty applications, according to the manufacturer.
Weighing 62 pounds, the VMAC Underhood 30 rotary screw air compressor is lightweight and compact. Made for light-duty applications, the compressor provides 50% more output than a bulkier standalone air compressor at a fraction of the weight, according to VMAC.
It can be installed quickly as there is minimal vehicle modification required, with the air compressor running off the van's own belt. VMAC works closely with van manufacturers to ensure vehicle warranties remain intact with the installation of Underhood air compressors.
The VMAC Underhood 30 Van Series air compressor also addresses several unique safety challenges that traditional standalone air compressors present. With the Van Series air compressor safely stored under the hood of the vehicle, operators aren't exposed to toxic exhaust in the cargo area, or at risk of gas fires.
"We've seen tremendous growth in the commercial van industry in North America, as businesses introduce vans into their fleets", said Mike Pettigrew, VMAC's Marketing Manager. "VMAC has responded to our customers' evolving demands by producing the Van Series of Underhood 30 Air Compressors for Ford, GMC, Chevrolet, RAM, and Mercedes-Benz models. The Underhood 30 Air Compressor for the 2013-2017 Ford Transit EcoBoost is the latest addition to this popular Van Series."
