The unit was provided from our Cape Town depot and shipped along with the scientific team to Antarctica. Our compressor performed brilliantly, even in this harsh environment. Not many service providers can say they have gone to the ends of the earth for their customers.

Rand-Air ensures nitrogen supply at sea


Need Nitrogen at sea, contact Rand-Air to assist with a complete Nitrogen package. Enermech had recently established an office in Cape Town. They had started scoping for an offshore project and had contacted Atlas Copco Specialty Rental in the UK for assistance. Rand-Air was able to supply the project with a local fleet including a twinair based Cape Town and had DNV frames built for the 2 x XRVS476 and a 200kva. We only had to bring in the NGM2000 ex UK and Atlas Copco supplied the technicians on board to give technical support. The application was for pipeline testing – 19000scfm @ 95% purity and at 22bar pressure.

Rand-Air helps build dams in Southern Africa


Rand-Air was an integral rental service provider in the building of the Berg river Dam project, this project was designed to ensure water security in the Western Cape. Rand-Air was a major contributor at the Braamhoek and Bedford Dam projects(Ingula Pumped Storage Scheme) The scheme construction encompassed two dams – the upper and lower reservoirs; a powerhouse, two tunnels that carry water from the reservoirs to the powerhouse, access roads, and transmission lines.

Rand-Air lights the way in the Northern Cape


When a new mine was developed in the Northern Cape, there was no infrastructure to call on. Rand-Air lighted the way by providing 160+ QLB5+ high lights to ensure visibility and safety on site. This 5-year project ensured that the mine operations could safely continue after hours. This project extended to diesel-driven compressors and generators. Due to the scope and length of the project, Rand-Air established an onsite service department to ensure the lights stayed on.

Rand-Air builds a modular compressor room


When Rand-Air was approached by a manufacturing concern for a possible long-term rental of a GA132 FF Electrical compressor, our customer's site conditions posed a serious dilemma. The company manufactures silicon carbide (SiC), which is very abrasive and very fine, which would normally play havoc with the compressor inlet air and continued operation of the compressor. Our Technical Department went about solving the customer dilemma, by creating a protective containerized modular compressor house, we could ensure the optimal operation of the GA132 compressor in spite of the hazardous site conditions. This project was definitely a first for South Africa.

Rand-Air's underground compressors


Rand-Air is a pioneer in the supply of mine-modified compressors. Our mining customer requested air compressors that could be safely operated in underground mine shafts, we went about modifying our standard GA fleet, and to date have converted GA75, GA110, GA132, and GA160's for various mines in Southern Africa. These conversions apply to the physical compressor housing, flow, voltage, and configuration. We completed the first air compressor conversion to a 1000V input power supply in Southern Africa. Another innovative design included fitting a underground compressor to a mining cart ("karretjie").

Rand-Air assists in mining exploration


A long-standing rental customer approached Rand-Air for a special project in the Northern Cape. They were awarded a mining exploration tender and would require 25-Bar Diesel High-Pressure Compressors for the project. Due to the safety requirements for the projects extra features had to be included in the units, including a remote start option as well as an internal fire suppression system. Our Technical team sprang into action, and we were able to assist with 18 converted XRVS Air compressors. Contact Rand-Air for your next special project .
