Repeat hire to long-standing customer

- Advertisment -

Recently, Rand-Air secured a repeat hire with a long-standing customer in the mining industry – based on a relationship dating back to 2014 – when the need arose for underground compressors for the mine, and Rand-Air was able to meet their very specific requirements.

Rand-Air has been the established leader in the local portable air compressor and generator rental market for 47 years, recently also introducing pumps to its popular rental range. With a central ethos of exceptional customer service – coupled with the regular training and development of its people – the company’s dedication to excellence has paid off once again: this time, in the form of valuable repeat business from a long-standing customer in the gold mining sector.

Rand-Air’s most recent hire to this customer was two Atlas Copco GA110 electric compressors, for use in underground drilling and secondary support for expansion mining in high productivity areas.

Enslin explains that the excellent one-day turnaround time for delivery was based on the close relationship that Rand-Air enjoys with its customer base.

Currently, this customer has a total of nine underground compressors on hire from us, all varying in size from GA75s to GA110s, depending on the various requirements.

Each of the Atlas Copco GA110 electric compressors supplies a free air delivery of 710CFM at a working pressure of 7 Bar. The compressors are fitted with a 525 V, 110 kW electric motor and are specifically modified to operate underground, with all conversions done as per mine specifications.

The compressor designs are compact, with a reduced footprint to fit into the spaces where they need to work. They are manufactured with a robust steel canopy and are on a skid-mounted frame, which is designed for a forklift to fit into, so that the customer can easily move the compressor to their next level of production.

In addition, the machines are fitted with steel roof panels and steel grating panels, with all components assembled on the manufactured frame. They also have a standard 525 V power supply.
