MICHIGAN CITY, IND. (November 29, 2023) – Compact Equipment, a nationally recognized magazine serving construction, landscape, and rental equipment professionals, has selected the Sullair E1035H portable electric air compressor as one of the Innovative Iron Award winners for 2023. The annual award recognizes the best compact equipment products launched in the calendar year.
“The E1035H truly exemplifies customer-forward design,” said Jerel Cole, Senior Product Manager for Hitachi Global Air Power. “What sets the E1035H apart is the added safety and enhanced convenience features, making E1035H a true game changer in the portable compressor industry. We are honored to be recognized and counted among the very best new and innovative products this year.”
Introduced in March 2023 and engineered for rental companies and their customers, the Sullair E1035H is the first in a long line of planned environmentally-forward compressed air solutions from Hitachi Global Air Power. On the performance side, the E1035H provides the same air power as its diesel counterparts, but in an electric, emission-less design. Customer-centric, safety-minded features include camlock electrical connections and compressed air discharge safely spaced from the operator. Patent-pending swing out coolers make cooler cleaning simple and thorough and AirLinx®, the Hitachi Global Air Power remote monitoring platform, is included for added peace of mind. Rounding out the convenience features is the Sullair Touch Screen controller providing intuitive operation of all compressor parameters. Finally, the E1035H features the innovative and Sullair-exclusive Electronic Spiral Valve Technology that automatically varies flow to meet current demand while maximizing energy efficiency – even in harsh environments and altitude.
Applications for the E1035H include mining, utilities, construction, back-up air, and more. And, because of its quieter operation than typical diesel air compressors, the E1035H can be used longer and during off hours.
