The Hardhat portable diesel compressor is fit for harsh environments

Atlas Copco’s HardHat compressors provide a reliable source of compressed air to drive pneumatic tools such as chipping hammers and jackhammers. Produced in a UN-approved and recyclable material, the hard, corrosion-free housing is what gives the HardHat its lower cost of ownership and higher resale value. Furthermore, keeping an unblemished appearance in the harsh environments where portable compressors can be operated supports the modern image of the companies who use them.
