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.

Sharks, Racing and Monster Trucks

February 25, 2013 at 10:12 AMRing Power

The past several days have been an exciting adventure for Ring Power. Friday, Ring Power joined OCEARCH in downtown Jacksonville where they held a press conference detailing the Caterpillar-sponsored research Ocearch will be completing during next several weeks as they attempt to catch and tag great white sharks off the coast of Jacksonville. On hand Friday was Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown, the OCEARCH crew, Caterpillar representatives and college students from around the region. Cat recently announced a multi-year partnership with OCEARCH for to fund several research expeditions.

At the same time as the Jacksonville event, Ring Power’s Air Compressor team was at the Daytona International Speedway for Daytona Speedweeks. The Air Compressor team worked closely with NASCAR R&D to develop a new track drying system. The new system, Air Titan, utilizes compressed air to dry the track in record time.

Back in Jacksonville, Ring Power’s Cat Rental Store team and Heavy Equipment Rental team were hard at work setting-up for Monster Jam. The event held at Everbank Field on Saturday attracted thousands of fans.

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.

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

Air Compressor Efficiency Saves Electric Utlity Costs—May, 2012

May 10, 2012 at 11:52 AMRing Power

Pan Am Railways facility saved $52,000 in power costs and received $94,000 in power company rebates by utilizing new Sullair electric air compressors.

Once a part of “the world’s most experienced airline,” Pan Am Railways is a freight carrier with 110 locomotives and hauls over a network of more than 2,000 miles track in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, and Canada's Atlantic provinces.

sullair electric air compressor


The railway operates a freight hub and rolling stock repair facility in East Deerfield, MA, employing more than 700 employees. Compressed air is required for three shifts, 24/7, in the main repair shops to operate air tools as well as in the distribution rail yards to check coupling and pneumatic switching.

A compressed air audit and, as a result, recommended two Sullair 24KT™ 150hp model V200TS two-stage air compressors which would alternate hours of operation. This recommendation was based upon a projected power savings of 217,377 kWh per year and a $78,000 rebate from the local power company, subject to verification.

The complete installation includes two Sullair V-200TS two-stage tandem rotary screw air compressors and two Sullair SSD desiccant dryers. These compressors feature variable capacity control (VCC), variable speed drive, EES Energy Efficiency System that recovers compressor-generated heat and 24KT™, Sullair’s extended life fluid. The combination of the two-stage air end, variable capacity control, variable speed drive and EES has proven these Sullair compressors to be the most effective in saving energy and reducing total life cycle costs.

Ring Power supplies Florida with a selection of electric industrial air compressors used in a wide range of applications from 17 CFM to 3095 CFM and 100 PSI to 350 PSI.
