for the VIKING EQUIPMENT IS CONNECTICUT’S AUTOMOTIVE AIR COMPRESSOR EXPERT
One of the most vital pieces of equipment to have is a high-quality air compressor. Compressed air is the lifeblood of your service center and without it, your dealership or shop simply can’t run. Your lifts, tire changers, tools, and other equipment will come to a grinding halt without compressed air.
Whether you’re shopping for a commercial grade air compressor, want to design a full air line system for your shop, or need air compressor service, Viking Equipment is here to meet all of your needs. We’ll work with you to choose the perfect compressor to fit your shop size, number of service techs, and other crucial factors. We also have air compressor parts, including driers, drains, and mag starters, in stock and available for immediate pickup or delivery.
If you’re experiencing consistent water in your compressor lines it might be because your compressor is not sized properly for your shops demands or it could be getting too old. Consult this article on water in compressor lines for more details.
FULL SHOP INSTALLATIONS
Here at Viking Equipment, we can handle the entire air line system installation for your shop. Viking Equipment’s choice manufacturer is Champion, with over 100 years in the air compression business and affordable prices. Choosing the right Champion air compressor all depends on your needs and Viking Equipment is proud to offer a wide variety of models.
Do you know what size compressor your shop needs? If you choose an air compressor that’s too small, it will heat up considerably and your equipment will run much less efficiently. If your air compressor is too big, it will not run often enough and water will gather in your cylinders, rotary screws, and other equipment.
Your air compressor needs to run at the perfect capacity and stay warm enough to vaporize water throughout the system. Water can become a huge issue, especially if it reaches and corrodes your tools and other equipment. Viking Equipment is committed to keeping your work area dry and safe through careful planning and completing your air compressor installation with a refrigerated dryer and aluminum piping. When dealing with air compressors, it’s not a time to guess or cut corners. Viking Equipment will guide you every step of the way towards making sure this central part of your operating system is exactly what you need.

CHAMPION ROTARY SCREW AIR COMPRESSOR
Champion Rotary Screw Compressors are especially suited for factory applications and offer state-of-the-art quiet air. They can service a large volume of vehicles with the highest pressure air delivery. Champion Rotary Screw Compressors also feature fewer parts than conventional units and offer tremendous energy savings. The most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a rotary screw air compressor is the importance of regular maintenance. It constantly needs to be fine-tuned to ensure it’s running as efficiently and safely as possible.
PRO-AIR AIR SYSTEM PIPING
Viking Equipment uses enamel-coated aluminum pipes when installing air compression which makes for an attractive installation. Pro-Air aluminum piping is lightweight, durable, and non-corrosive. It’s also easy to change or add on to if you ever need to adjust your equipment or shop design. Viking Equipment can supply and install the correct size piping for your specific air system to fully protect your service area from water and condensation.
Refrigerated dryers are a must for your dealership or shop to eliminate the moisture from compressed air. When water is still in vapor form in the tank, it heads out into the pipes and condenses there. If not dealt with properly, that water can reach your tools and equipment. Ensuring that the air around your equipment is dry will protect your tools from corrosion and help avoid potential safety hazards. Viking Equipment will provide the correct dryer for your air system, which needs to be properly sized to your specific air compressor. Utilizing a refrigerated dryer will quietly and efficiently remove water from the air, and we will expertly install and service the unit for you.
