    further compressors supplied few months later 


12x Airman 400cfm and 4x Airman 185cfm portable diesel towable compressors were purchased to provide for easy transportability, suiting the varied needs of the Hertel Modern services team. To meet stringent (mine) site standards, several enhancements were made to ensure that all compressors surpassed all requirements, including special air filtration systems (for the site’s very dusty environmental conditions), customised certification and fittings. The safety and environmental management credentials of the machine were increased with several standard options including emergency stop buttons, Battery isolators, fire extinguishers and oil containment bunding.

Hertel Modern was extremely impressed with the performance of the Airman compressors, that they ordered a further 12 400cfm portable diesel compressors few months later.



The competitive pricing of the Airman range has allowed Hertel Modern to have a fleet of compressors that not only meet exacting site requirements, but are also fitted with a number of additional options to suit the company and their equipment operators. Being completed on-time and in-spec, Hertel Modern was able to benefit from the guaranteed performance of their Airman PDS400SC-6B1-T and PDS185SC-6C2-T compressors, with reliable, clean compressed air delivered across their site wherever air is needed.
