Sullair LS Series Selected Plant Engineering 2017 Product of the Year Finalist

November 21, 2017 at 9:49 AMRing Power

Ring Power’s Compressed Air Group is pleased to announce that Plant Engineering Magazine has selected the Sullair LS Series of air compressors as a 2017 Product of the Year Finalist.

2017 represents the 30th anniversary of the Product of the Year award program – which allows Plant Engineering readers the opportunity to select the outstanding new products that help them do their jobs smarter, safer, more efficiently and more productively.

First announced at ComVac 2017 in Hannover, Germany, the Sullair LS Series combines the legendary durability Sullair is known for with unprecedented ease of use and outstanding energy efficiency. The LS Series of Compressors is the first to utilize a new, patent-pending air end design. The air end takes proven bearing technology and combines it with a new, larger rotor profile – resulting in the most energy-efficient single stage compressor Sullair has ever offered.  Additionally, the new air end features all internal porting meaning fewer components are needed – which helps increase Sullair durability.

“We are humbled to have the Sullair LS Series selected as a Product of the Year Finalist,” according to Friedmar Rumpel, Global Vice President of Product and Program Management at Sullair. “This program has been focused from start to finish on how to significantly improve the customer experience with Sullair compressors. Innovative new features like the new air end with Electronic Spiral Valve and a 10” Sullair Touch Screen Controller have received glowing feedback from both our channel partners and end users who have already installed the Sullair LS compressor as a backbone to their operations.”

Available in horsepower ranges from 125-150 hp (90 to 110 kW), Sullair LS Series compressors are capable of providing pressures from 110 to 175 psi (7.6 to 12 bar).

Plant Engineering Product of the Year finalists are announced November 9, 2017 and voting for eligible reads continues through January 5, 2018. Award winners are announced on the Plant Engineering website on April 2, 2018 and published in the May 2018 issue of Plant Engineering.  Sullair has previously been honored with Product of the Year awards in 2006 (S-energy®); 2008 (EES®); 2009 (TS20); and 2012 (E900 – Silver Award).

Custom Cat® C15 Air Compressor Package to be on display at OTC Houston

May 4, 2015 at 12:03 PMRing Power

Caterpillar Oil & Gas will display a custom Cat C15 Air Compressor package in an enclosure configuration at the 2015 OTC Houston Show, held May 4th – 7th in Houston, Texas.  Each C15 package is rated at 536 bhp (400 bkW) @ 1800 rpm and the finished package will provide 1600 cfm at 150 psi, while meeting the stringent DNV 2.7-2 certification requirements. Cat dealer Ring Power led the effort to design and develop the custom compressor packages in conjunction with Caterpillar Oil & Gas, Pyroban, a Caterpillar company, and Sullair Corporation. Ring Power will soon be offering additional Cat-powered models: 250 cfm, 400 cfm and 1000 cfm. The custom packages are offered in both skid and enclosed configurations. Ring Power is the first Cat dealer building air compressor packages to DNV 2.7-2 requirements

“Ring Power and our partners have worked hard to develop a solid relationship of teamwork and collaboration through all stages of this project,” said Roger Adkins, Ring Power Air Compressor vice president. “Moving forward, Ring Power will continue to train and provide CompEx-certified technicians to support Caterpillar Oil & Gas and our customers in the field.”

ZONE II Certified Air Compressor

The C15 custom air compressor units were designed to be compliant with global standards for worldwide usage in a rental fleet. The units feature an air inlet shutoff as a method of stopping the engine in the presence of a flammable atmosphere and an intake flame arrestor to prevent flames within the intake manifold from spreading to the outside atmosphere. The packages are equipped with water-cooled flexible exhaust pipes with a rugged vibration-resistant design, developed specifically for offshore applications. The exhaust gas heat exchanger in the custom units reduces the temperature of exhaust gas to meet area requirements and has been explosion tested and certified for use in Zone 2 areas.

Cat hazardous location solutions are fully customizable and designed to integrate with complex equipment with offerings ranging from components to complete power solutions and generator sets for a broad spectrum of applications. The hazardous location engine is rated at 536 bhp between 1,800- 2,000 rpm, with an ambient capability of 50° C for the mechanical systems and 60° C on the electrical system.

A variety of hazardous-location certified attachments are available, including an alternator, ATEX Messenger and ATEX throttle control and inlet air flame trap. This engine also features Non-Sparking (nA) and Intrinsically Safe (ic) ECM wiring harnesses and sensors, as well as harness cable jackets that meet flame propagation requirements of IEC 60332-1-2. Having a completely designed, tested and certified package from Caterpillar allows the customer to reduce project complexity and decrease certification-related risks.

Tampa Air Compressor team creating specialized solution for Petroleum Drilling

January 28, 2014 at 12:28 PMRing Power

Confined space. Potentially explosive environment. Never been done.

To most that sounds a lot like: “Strike One! Strike Two! Strike Three! Yer Out!”  But to Jim Huber (National Sales Rep), Gene Meisenheimer (Compressor Service Operations Manager) and Josh Stockwell (Central Florida AC Dispatcher) of Ring Power’s Tampa Air Compressor team, these phrases have created a very unique – and challenging – opportunity.

Gene and Josh are leading Ring Power’s effort to build containerized air compressors that are rated to operate in petroleum drilling rigs. The goal is to build a package that can operate closer to the drill head and in a smaller space than any other.

The prospective customer outlined a wish list of specifications and capacities, and Ring Power has commissioned a design and sourced components to meet those goals. The finished package will provide 1600 cfm at 150 psi, while meeting the stringent DNV 2.7-2 certification requirements (to date, no compressor solution has met this standard; every unit built will have to be independently certified.)

The package is powered by a Cat engine with a Pyroban Explosive Environment kit, a Sullair Drill Air Compressor Kit, an exhaust gas cooler, air inlet shutoff valve, fail-safe louvers, gas detectors and a fire suppression system bundled tightly into a Simmons Equipment container. It all sits upon a skid built by  Mark Harden and Tim Flag in the  HE Fabrication shop.

The team, including Air Compressor Tech Chad Grimmer have the first four units in “design/build” production, and a contract for the first 24 units.

Customer Dubs New Air Compressor System “The Pride of the Facility”

November 4, 2013 at 11:18 AMRing Power

Ring Power’s air compressor team recently completed the Sullair Air Compressor Unitssale and startup of six new Sullair rotary screw air compressors at PCS Phosphate’s Suwannee River Chemical Plant. For PCS, this upgrade was the silver lining following Tropical Storm Debby, which damaged the plant’s Ingersoll Rand units in June 2012.

Within 24 hours of the storm, Ring Power's compressed air experts responded with rental compressors that supported the plant's production throughout the design and purchasing phase of the project. In addition to replacing seven old IR units, the new system required three new 8,000-gallon receiver tanks and a flow controller, also purchased from Ring Power.

NASCAR's Air Titan and Ring Power’s Air Compressor Team make their way around the country

May 10, 2013 at 9:57 AMRing Power

New track-drying system “Saves the day” at Talladega

After debuting at Daytona International Speedway in February, Air Titan, NASCAR’s new track drying system, has made its way to other tracks around the country.

With the assistance of Ring Power’s Air Compressor team, Air Titan has been tested at Martinsville Speedway in Ridgeway, Va. and Kansas Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.  The May 5 race at Talladega Superspeedway in Talladega, Ala. marked the first time Air Titan actually has been used during a Sprint Cup Series race. Air Titan shined, drying the track 45 minutes sooner than NASCAR officials estimated. USA Today even called the Air Titan a “new superhero.” 

Air Titan utilizes compressed air to dry the track. The system was developed by NASCAR’s Research and Development center with the assistance of Ring Power and Sullair.

Learn more about how the new track-drying system works.

NASCAR Unveils Ring Power’s Track-drying System

February 14, 2013 at 8:09 AMRing Power

The Daytona 500 was the only race in NASCAR’s three national series postponed because of rain last year. After the day and a half delay, the race was red-flagged for another two hours when Juan Pablo Montoya’s car crashed into a track jet dryer, causing it to burst into flames.

This year, NASCAR will debut a new track-drying system Air Titan — at the Daytona 500 – and it won’t need jet fuel. Ring Power’s air compressor team helped engineer the amount of air needed and delivery system to the new track drying equipment being utilized this year. The new system will use heated compressed air pushed through pipes behind a pickup truck, to blast the track dry. With air compressor technology, a track such the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway can be dried in less than an hour – a huge improvement over what used to take up to 2.5 hours – and in a safer, more carbon emissions-friendly way.

To learn more about the track drying system from the NASCAR vice president of racing operations, visit http://ow.ly/hI5pY.

You can also view an animation of how the new drying system works here.

Tune in to the race and look for the Ring Power and Sullair logos on the compressor trailer wraps.
