Power Units

Tecnair Power Units operate using standard factory compressed air and does not require an external hydraulic power supply to create the high pressure stroke.

The Power Units are highly efficient, using a small amount of compressed air in comparison to the high forces generated by the unit.

Power Units are clean-line and very compact in comparison to hydraulic power solutions; and such solutions are also compromised by the slow operating speeds.

Tecnair Power Units provide high operating speeds.

Tecnair Power Units utalise a small number of moving parts which reduces operational noise level and ensures a long trouble free life.

The Units are fitted with in-built pneumatic control valves to eliminate external pilot control piping.
