Applications & Use Cases

General Construction

Pneumatic breaker RTEX

The units were tested both in lab and field conditions to ensure optimal performance. It’s designed to withstand the toughest working conditions. We have a mobile compressor for any in-or outdoor application. On top of peace of mind, you'll also gain low noise levels, small footprint, no fuel cost and zero emissions, high resale value, easy to use and intuitive controllers... and much more.

  • Bridge work
  • Painting
  • Shotcrete blasting

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

DrillAir Y35 - field test 10

Pneumatic Directional boring refers to smaller-diameter bores over shorter distances while horizontal directional drilling, or HDD, indicates larger diameters and longer distances.

PDB and HDD are trenchless technologies that use surface-launched equipment to drill underground horizontally and install pipes, conduits, and cables. These processes can be air-driven and are used in numerous industries, such as utilities and telecommunications, at sites in dense, urban areas and/or where traditional vertical excavations are too dangerous (e.g., under bodies of water).  

  • Can be employed to install underground utilities
  • Allows operators to drill horizontally controlling the direction of drill
  • The compressor powers the hammer at the end of the drill and uses air to clear dirt and debris


Atlas Copco Portable Energy - Sand blasting

Sandblasters are used to clean difficult substances like rust or paint from solid surfaces like metal. In order to choose the correct compressor unit for sandblasting it is important to understand that the compressor doesn’t simply provide a single burst of air. It must sustain the pressure needed for the specific equipment and operation. The compressor needs to have the right air volume. Too little and it won’t be able to keep up with your job, too much and you've overspent.

  • Integrated water cooling system available
