Coatings operations can take advantage of Next Generation’s new patent-pending Gen-Air-Ator, which couples a 1,800 rpm diesel generator with a rotary vane air compressor.

Made to handle polyureas, epoxies and other thick liquid-applied materials, the Gen-Air-Ator is designed to be a lightweight, space-saving, fuel-efficient combination unit for many industries that require remote power and air.

The unit pairs a 35 kW Stamford Newage generator with a 10 hp Hydrovane rotary vane compressor, producing 35 cfm at 150 psi.

Efficiencies and Design

According to Next Generation, directly coupling the air compressor to the generator engine eliminates drive efficiency loss, which saves fuel. Meanwhile, the company says, running both components at 1,800 rpm as one rigid assembly reduces vibration and noise and eliminates the need for a heavy mounting frame.

The unit measures 87” L x 23” W x 36” H and weighs 1,460 pounds.

The rotary vane compressor by Gardner Denver has no roller bearings to wear out, giving a service life of up to 100,000 hours.  Its built-in servo unloader control automatically regulates to match system demand, helping keep the unit’s fuel consumption low and eliminating the need for an external air tank, the manufacturer says.

Rotary vane compressors are designed to perform well in abusive environments, requiring less oil than a rotary screw compressor and standing up to cold weather, according to Next Generation. 

Based in Jacksonville, FL, Next Generation Power Engineering has produced gen-sets, power units, compressors and generator-compressor combinations for the marine and industrial markets for more than 20 years.
