Westair International Air Compressors for Mining Applications
Westair International is a wholly Australian owned and operated company. We have been in the compressed air industry for over 25 years, have amassed over 100 years of combined experience and have one of the most comprehensive ranges of air compressors in the Australian market.
Air compressors for tough mining conditions
Our air compressors are engineered for tough Australian conditions. We have supplied products into some of the toughest industrial, commercial and mining environments, making the Westair air compressor a well-rounded product.
Our product range includes but is not limited to SCR rotary screw electric and diesel air compressors, reciprocating (piston) electric, and petrol and diesel powered air compressors, in both portable and stationary configurations. We also stock a comprehensive range of refrigerated air dryers, premium quality air preparation filters, and both vertical and horizontal air receivers.
Piston, direct-drive and single-phase compressors
Westair 12V and 24V compressors have been designed and constructed with quality in mind. Mainly used in the industrial and mining fields, they have proven themselves in some of the toughest conditions imaginable, are designed for long life and are fully repairable.
Our direct-drive compressors have been designed and constructed with quality in mind. Our direct-drive machines come with a full 12 month domestic use warranty and we have all the required spare parts in stock.
All Westair electric belt drive single-phase compressors have been designed and constructed with enginerring quality in mind. Our proven F series pumps feature heavy-steel base plates to keep pump and motor alignment perfect and reduce vibration, and use fully enclosed and securely mounted steel mesh guards in order to meet all workplace safety standards.
Three-phase, petrol and diesel air compressors
Westair offers a range of electric belt three-phase compressors. The RB series pump is second to none, offering reduced energy use motors (MEPS 2), increased production and lower running costs.
Our Honda petrol compressors offer reliability, performance, low fuel consumption and quieter operation. Through constant customer research and on-going innovative design, we have now incorporated a pump stop system to all our petrol models. This will reduce fuel consumption, allow for easy one-pull starting and reduce pump wear and operating noise.
We also offer a Lombradini diesel-driven range. Our diesel models now feature a pump stop system in order to reduce fuel consumption, allow for easier starting, and reduce pump wear and operating noise.
Pneumatic post driver air tools for mine sites
The pneumatic post driver air tool has been proven on the harsh terrain of central Australia, building long strained fencing in record time. It drives star posts through bitumen, shale and black soil surfaces, as well as ironstone and sandstone.
The driver can be used for driving in steel fencing posts, trellising posts, plastic posts, timber stakes, round or square pine posts into pre-augured or water speared holes or very soft ground. The post driver weighs 18kg and is easily dismantled for servicing, oiling and replacing the striking dolly.
We also offer a range of optional attachments including a striking dolly, chisels, picks, bead breakers, guide post drive kits, plugs, picket post pullers, puller jaws and air hoses.
Spare parts and custom-built air compressors and pumps
Westair stocks a full range of spare parts for all our pumps. We provide single, twin and three-cylinder pumps with varying bores and strokes.
We are also able to make a wide range of custom-built units to suit your specific requirements.
