In an unprecedented developmental leap forward, Airworks Compressors Corp allows their customers to turn their engines off and continue to run their crane, bucket lift or hydraulic tool circuits. Airworks has developed a hydraulic supply unit called the Vortex Hyper-Pak, that replaces a traditional PTO on a chassis. Using the Vortex, Airworks customers are assured of a continuous duty cycle, unlike battery powered alternatives. The Vortex offers a reliable and safe alternative to bulky and environmentally hazardous battery based hybrid technology. 

"There are no expensive upgrades for our customers' trucks to use this unit and any technician or mechanic can easily service it" says Darryl Weflen, President and product developer of the Vortex for Airworks Compressors Corp. "It is a suitable upgrade for any chassis and offers a decreased initial cost versus other hybrid alternatives". The benefits are many for this unit: decreased weight (it weighs only from 164 lbs/70 kg), ease of installation, zero chassis run time to operate buckets, cranes or tools and substantial fuel savings. All Airworks products are Tier 4 compliant and allow their customers to meet all current and pending anti-idle legislation. The Vortex is available from 14 to 83 HP with many options including an A/C generator, radio remote, a 110 amp Alternator, a cold weather kit (warms the Vortex enroute to a jobsite and warms the chassis' cab while the Vortex is working) and air conditioning for cooling the cab while the Vortex is in operation.

With quick payback due to decreased entry and operating costs, the Vortex far exceeds current conventional and hybrid hydraulic power systems.
