    Efficiency and quality construction are the hallmarks of this 2-stage compressor from Ingersoll Rand. High-efficiency is what Ingersoll Rand strives for. These high-efficiency features include: an intercooler that lowers compressed air temperature and reduces condensation, stainless steel valves, and inlet air filters with sound attenuation baffles. With all these components, you're looking at a longer pump life. This unit is perfect for applications where air demands need to be consistent. The over sized bearings and belt wheel deliver 100% duty cycle air power when and where you need it. As always with IR, you can count on all units being thoroughly tested prior to shipment. Lastly, take Ingersoll Rand's 1 year Factory Warranty and bump it to 2 years with the purchase of their start-up kit. You're going to need the oil since these compressors ship dry. Why not kill to birds with one stone?
