D10A Diesel with 40 Amp Alternator

Picture 1:Several of these machines were built for Sonatrach BHP Billiton and exported to them to the oil fields of Algeria for use on trailers in Petrochemical plants. Their application required frequent starting and stopping of the compressor, which would eventually drain the battery on the trailer. They had no desire to use the pullstart method that all of our machines are fitted with as standard, so a solution had to be found to keep the trailer battery fully charged at all times. The design of a retro-fit high-output alternator charging system was designed and installed to our otherwise standard diesel compressor. This is another example of Reading Pneumatic Services Ltd.'s engineering ingenuity and skill to design and develop a machine to suit any customer's individual need.
