VIAIR compressors have a variety of applications across many industries. Our case studies show one of the many ways our compressors are used in the field by our customers.
VIAIR Compressors Maintain Reliable
Air Brakes for First Responder Vehicles
In emergency response, getting to your destination quickly, reliably, and safely can make the difference in saving lives. One of Viair’s customers is a top emergency vehicle manufacturer in the country that has a distribution network in over 44 countries. As an emergency response manufacturer, their priorities when selecting components that go into their vehicles are –
• Reliability and trustworthiness: First responders’ work is a matter of life and death, so they must be able to rely on the vehicles and tools they use daily when saving lives.
• Size: Room on an emergency vehicle is limited, so they have to be conscientious about the size of components/products in the vehicles. A smaller product will provide more room for other important items that need to go in the rig.
• Performance: Components that go into the vehicle must have a low failure rate and perform without issue.
Emergency rigs require air compressors that are used for secondary air systems for air brakes and other air systems. If the air compressor fails, the air brakes would not work and the vehicle would be unable to stop. When first responders are constantly on the go, the last thing they want to worry about is their brake system having issues during a critical situation.
The emergency response manufacturer uses Viair air compressors because of our low failure rates, high performance, and small compact size. They know that Viair compressors are reliable and will uphold and maintain their braking system to be used at any time. Viair compressors also feature high duty cycle and will continue working without needing as much rest time, enabling first responders to get to their destinations. The compact size of the Viair air compressor leaves more room for important items they need to continue to save lives.
