Jenny unleashes air compressor line
Jenny Products, Inc., a long-time manufacturer of portable and stationary compressors, offers a line of electric single-stage, horizontal-tank stationary air compressors. The 16 single-stage belt-driven models feature cast-iron compressor pumps and powder-coated, ASME certified tanks.
The largest models in the Jenny single-stage line offer 60- or 80-gallon horizontal tanks and provide 5 horsepower while displacing 27.8 or 28.7 cfm at 125 psi. Magnetic starters come standard on these larger units. A wide range of horsepower and cfm displacement levels are available from there, including 3, 2, 1.5, 1 and 3/4 horsepower. The smallest model in the line uses a 17-gallon tank and provides 1/2 horsepower. It displaces 3.4 cfm at 125 psi.
An automatic start/stop control with a pressure unloader set at 105-125 psi also comes standard throughout the series. When pressure drops, the control closes a switch and starts the air compressor to maintain a constant pressure. When the appropriate level is again reached, the compressor stops and an unloader valve expels any air between the check valve and compressor. A constant-run feature may be installed instead for those requiring a constant, heavy flow of compressed air, and a dual-control option also is offered, enabling the operator to switch between the two configurations as needed.
