The LITE compressor mounts under the hood of your van. To operate, simply shift your van into park and engage the parking brake. With the engine idling, a simple on/off switch turns on the compressor system. Once on, an electric clutch engages on the compressor, the engine idles up, and the rotary screw compressor delivers a steady, continuous flow of air to your tools.

The WHASP Tank is an integrated cooler/tank that mounts in the cargo area on your van. An air/oil mixture is thrust from the compressor to the WHASP Tank that both cools the air/oil mixture, and separates and then recirculates the oil back to the compressor. The compressed air flows continuously to our auxiliary air receiver tank and onto your air tools.

Handle Any of Your Compressed Air Needs
The powerful LITE air compressor provides 30CFM and up to 150PSI of air, easily handling any job. 100% duty cycle means you will never run out of air while using your 1/2” impact wrench. The controls are easy to use. An automatic pressure switch engages the custom Ogura clutch on the compressor when the system is building air, and disengages the clutch when it reaches pressure.
Free Up Your Cargo Space
The space saving LITE air compressor is mounted under the hood of your van and is belt driven to the front of the van's engine.  The powerful rotary screw air compressor reduces the need for a large air reservoir tank.   Plus, the super compact dimensions and lightweight design maximizes carrying capacity and available cargo space on your van.
Make Operations Safe
The safe LITE air compressor eliminates the need to run gas engine powered air compressors in the back of your van.  This prevents exhaust emissions that are harmful to drivers and operators.  Refueling gas tanks over a hot muffler inside a van is dangerous.  Excessive heat generated by the compressor's engine operating inside the van can also cause damage to the side panels
Lower Operational Costs
The affordable LITE air compressor delivers the ROI you require. With patented rotary screw technology, productivity can be improved by reducing the amount of time operators are waiting for air pressure to build.  Get jobs done faster and get customers back to work with the UNDERHOOD LITE air compressor system.
