Industrial Electric

40-60 HP

The SP13 is designed for optimized efficiency, size, and maintenance. Manufactured by Sullivan-Palatek, this industrial electric air compressor ranges from 40-60 hp.

This unit’s small footprint and versatility make it a useful product for both metal and plastic fabrication facilities, as well as the food and beverage industry. This versatile product is also remarkably quiet, with an optional sound enclosure.

Features & Benefits

  • NEMA Premium Efficient, Severe Duty TEFC motor
  • The motor control assembly has a NEMA 4 enclosure for safe use in industrial environments.
  • Equipped with an enhanced user display, the Q1 controller is capable of web access and remote monitoring with the sequencing of up to 12 compressors.
  • The new SP13-Series airend is designed for efficiency, performance, and low maintenance.
  • The new high-flow, low-loss inlet valve is designed for increased efficiency and dependable performance.
  • The compressor assembly is flange mounted to the motor’s C-face for positive alignment.
  • Optimized Air-Oil separators have less restriction and reduce fluid carryover to less than 1 ppm with an 8,000-hour maintenance frequency.
