Jenny Products GT-Series air compressor: Thanks for inviting me.
Plant Services: What are you designed for?
J: I'm designed for high-pressure output.
PS: So what exactly do you do?
J: I'm engineered to produce 15.5 CFM at 100 PSI or 15.2 CFM at 175 PSI. I'm driven by a commercial-grade, 5-horsepower electric motor, which operates from a 230-volt, single-phase power source.
PS: What sets you apart from the competition?
J: My features include powder-coated air tanks and cast-iron compressor pumps. My directional air shroud, finned intercooler and large flywheel are made to keep pump temperatures low and assist in start-up. Also, my “Ultimate Blue” synthetic pump oil is formulated to protect my pistons, crankshaft, bearings, rings and cylinders through a splash lubrication system.
PS: Interesting. What is your best feature?
J: I offer mounted fittings and totally enclosed belt guards. I also have dual pneumatic wheels, a lift handle and a six-foot power cord. Other standard features include pressure relief safety valves, large canister intake filters with replaceable filter elements, manual tank drains, unloading valves, stainless steel braided discharge hoses, anti-vibration feet, and tank, regulator and outlet pressure gauges.
PS: Why should someone buy you?
J: My options include start/stop control, dual control, a dual voltage switch, an on/off switch, oil sight glass, air line filter and a lubricator.
PS: Tell us more about Jenny Products.
J: With roots dating back to the 1870s, Jenny Products has been an OEM manufacturer for several major manufacturers of air compressors. Today, Jenny manufactures and markets its own line of hand-carry, wheeled-portable and industrial-stationary air compressors.
PS: And now it's time for a fun question. What sound do you hate?
J: The sound of compressed air leaking.
