Quantima oil-free compressor wins Plant Engineering best product

CompAir’s recently-released oil-free compressor, the Quantima, has gained industry recognition by winning Plant Engineering magazine’s 2008 Product of the Year Awards, an annual US-industry award that recognises the best in new product achievement.

The Quantima operates on a completely oil-free basis making it energy-efficient, while delivering the lowest power consumption and carbon footprint of any compressor on the market, according to CompAir.

The judges were impressed with the machine’s proven reliability and its cost of ownership, which is the lowest in its class, says the manufacturer.

The judging process includes entries being first reviewed by an expert panel of plant engineers and the finalists in each category are then selected by subscribers to the magazine.

Plant Engineering magazine editor, Bob Vavra, said: “Our readers are the people who buy, specify and use these products on a daily basis and are the most qualified to understand how new products reduce energy costs, ensure safety and improve productivity on the manufacturing plant floor. That’s why the Plant Engineering Product of the Year award is so highly regarded in the industry.”

CompAir officially launched the Quantima in Australia in November 2008.

The Product of the Year awards will be presented at the 2009 Plant Engineering Manufacturing Summit, to be held March 29-31 in Charleston, South Carolina, USA.
