The Leading Air Compressor Hire Company in Perth

  • Proudly Australian owned and based in the heart of the Australian Marine Complex in Henderson, Western Australia, Compressed Air Hire is a company committed to delivering optimised hire solutions for mobile air compressor units.
  • In an increasingly competitive market, our top quality service, rates and equipment is our point of difference. We understand that time is money, so we have invested in a growing fleet of top of the range equipment and compressed air solutions.
  • We have partnered with Atlas Copco because we believe they are the best in the business. This allows our clients to capitalise from technological advances and product development achieved in over 150 years of operation. It is also why we use them exclusively as the sole supplier for all our compressed air equipment.
  • At Compressed Air Hire, our goal is to supply affordable mobile compressed air solutions to our clients, while retaining the flexibility required to respond to changing customer needs.
  • We have two types of mobile diesel powered units available:

    185cfm Trailer Mounted Compressors

    This reliable unit is built tough to cope with Australian conditions. Featuring a revolutionary polyethylene canopy designed to protect the compressor, this essential piece of equipment is durable enough to stand up to the extreme heat and dust found on every Australian construction or mining site.

    Designed with practicality in mind, this air compressor is extremely robust and has an adjustable height towbar and road lights. Powered by a super reliable 49 HP Kubota engine which is EPA Tier 4 final compliant, it has to be one of the most efficient air compressors on the market.

    400cfm Trailer Mounted Compressors

    Designed to a specification high enough to cope with Australia’s toughest site conditions, our 400cfm range of trailerable compressors offer outstanding reliability and performance. Satisfying the same needs as our 185cfm fleet, the 400cfm offers greater flexibility provided from the larger output and the additional 2” outlet that comes standard on all units.

    This allows larger flow rates for applications that require up to 175l/s. Whether you need a compressor for road building, civil engineering or to drive equipment onsite, the 400cfm is a practical solution.

    The Air Compressor – possibly the most useful piece of equipment you can get your hands on

    From inflating tyres to tightening the wheel nuts, cutting, grinding, polishing, painting or sanding, every auto workshop worth its salt has an air compressor as part of its standard equipment. But there are many other uses for an air compressor. In the construction industry they power nail guns and sanders. In manufacturing, drills, impact wrenches and staplers often run on air. Air compressors run the spray guns used by panel and paint shops, and these days painter and decorators often use spray guns powered by compressed air to paint the interiors of new homes.

    Why choose air?

    The big advantage of air power is efficiency. Each tool doesn’t need its own bulky motor or power source. Having a central power source means that tools are lighter and much quieter to operate. Air compressors come in all shapes and sizes, from something small enough to fit in your glove box and run off a car battery to a fixed system run off three phase or to a fully transportable truck mounted diesel air compressor. Each type has its own pros and cons but in the construction, mining or industrial sectors, a transportable diesel air compressor is predominantly the tool of choice.

    How they work

    The technology behind air compression is relatively straight forward. Compressors, as the name suggests, operate on a simple principle. When air gets compressed, the volume goes down and the pressure goes up. Compressed air is a form of power. It’s stored in a tank which is connected to a variety of tools by an air-line. For safety, the pressure within the tank is regulated by valves. Air compressor outputs are measured in two main ways, PSI (pounds per square inch) and deliverable CFM (cubic feet per minute). These measurements determine how efficiently the air compressor will operate in different situations.

    Diesel Air Compressors

    When there is no reliable source of electricity available, a diesel air compressor is the go-to solution. With a reputation for being as tough as the environments they operate in, a diesel air compressor is durable, reliable and there’s a model suitable for every application. On construction sites or mine sites in regional or remote Australia, a diesel air compressor supports trade and technical operators to get the job done. With capacities that vary from 100 to 1600 cfm and a pressure range of 100 – 500 psi and a host of configurations and options, our diesel air compressors are designed for continuous use.
