Rental Equipment Register (RER) magazine has selected the Sullair OFD1550 portable oil free rotary screw air compressor as the top winner in the Compressors/Air Tools equipment category of its 2018 Innovative Product Awards. 

Now in its 17th year, the RER Innovative Product Awards showcase the most innovative products introduced between July 1, 2017, and July 31, 2018. The prestigious award program honors innovative products in 16 equipment categories decided on by a panel of judges from the equipment rental industry. From those 16 category winners, Gold, Silver and Bronze winners were awarded by the panel to the top products – with the OFD1550 earning the Bronze award overall.

“We are honored that the OFD1550 has been awarded first place in the compressor category of RER’s Innovative Product Awards,” said Friedmar Rumpel, Global Vice President of Product and Program Management at Sullair. “With Sullair continuing to expand its oil free air portfolio, we identified a need to offer our rental customers 100% oil free air in a mobile package. The OFD1550 satisfies both short- and long-term rental customer needs and gives rental houses additional flexibility to satisfy more customer applications and provide higher utilization rates.”

First introduced in February 2018, the OFD1550 is yet another solution in the ever-expanding Sullair oil free portfolio. As more customers seek options for sensitive compressed air needs, the OFD1550 brings ISO 8573-1 Class 0 oil free air wherever it is needed—plantside, refineryside or at the jobsite. 

The OFD1550 is packed with features to help ensure versatile operations and maximum uptime, such as a full color 7” Sullair Touch Screen controller; Sullair AirLinx® remote monitoring and telematics; a refinery package offering; and a Cold Weather Package.

The three top winners – including the OFD1550 – will be profiled in RER magazine’s December issue, in an upcoming issue of RER Reports, and on the publication’s website.

Sullair was previously honored with an RER Innovative Product Award in 2016, when the 400HH Tier 4 Final portable rotary screw air compressor won the compressors/air tools category.
