 Wind Compressor | Wind Driven Air Compressor | Alt  Energy

Free Shipping within the Continental US!

For over 30 years this proven wind powered air compressor has been manufactured and used by the Amish.  
 
Three different models are available a 1-1/2, 5 and a 10 HP.  
 
The Wind Compressor will generate compressed air in winds as low as 8 MPH!
 
If you already use compressed air in a shop factory or are looking for alternative wind powered energy The Wind Compressor maybe an alternative energy product to consider.
 
Compressed air is produced and stored in large air tanks, which many of the Amish convert used 1000 gal propane tanks. Tanks can also be used in tandem for additional storage capacity.
 
The air pressure can be adjusted at the base of the tower. An air pressure switch furls the machine when desired pressure is reached, preventing over-pressure condition. A shock absorber prevents over-speed condition in high winds by allowing the machine to furl. A manual control makes manual shut-off possible.
 
Since the Amish use off-grid alternative energy, air power has become a sustainable source to run woodworking shop and farm power tools.  Air powered kitchen appliances, fans, washing machine motors and even sewing machine motors are used by the Amish.
 
These items are all available here on our website.
 
Air powered water well pumps are also used to pump well water into a pressurized water tank and then used as in any other home.
 
The wind driven air compressor can also aerate your ponds and store air energy for days with no wind.
 
Air powered motors provide more torque  than a DC battery powered motor and if taken care of by keeping them oiled and free of condensed water, they likely will outlast both DC and AC motors dependent on an armature and brushes.
 
Since condensation moisture is the most common problem in compressed air systems, the Wind Compressor has a built in condenser to automatically drain condensation each time the pressure relief valve activates or the windmill is manually shut off.
 
Air driers should always be used in line between the air storage tank and air powered equipment.
 
With their commercial grade durability of air powered tools and equipment, factories and auto body shops have used air power for decades. (Air powered tools and equipment can be much more nosier than electric motors)
 
Depending on the cubic feet per minute (CFMs) the tools and appliances use will determine the size of compressor and storage capacity that will be needed.

The Wind Compressor will need to be mounted on a substantial tower base that will allow the unit to be serviced annually. The tower base could be an existing water windmill tower, part of an old communications tower, or a 6” pipe tower with a gin pole for tip over servicing, secured with guy wires.  
 
Google “Building Wind Turbine Towers” to find information and plans on building towers.
 
Optional complete pipe tower kits are available which include all the pipes, gin pole, bolted couplings, hinged foundation, guy wires, and other hardware. The pipe is  6” ¼” thick and comes primed ready for you to paint. These tower will run around $3500 plus the truck freight, shipping in 20’ lengths.  E-mail us for a price if you’re interested in a tower kit.
 
Consideration of the type of tower to use will depend on what is economically available, the wind speeds in your area, and just how efficient you want the unit to produce.
 
Providing the annual crank case oil change will also need to be a consideration on the type of tower to use.  An existing windmill tower with a ladder and a solid work platform maybe the most ideal, but if your area is not in a good air pattern to produce at least sustained 8 MPH winds, you will need to consider a tower maybe as high as 90’ that can be tipped over or safely climbed with harness to provide the service.
 
The Wind Compressor is available with a hubs that will either fit on a windmill tower, or a 6” pipe tower.  The 6” pipe tower hub comes with a hinged pivot to allow the head to swing level at ground level for oil changes that are required annually.
 
The hub is included in the price, select either hub for your application using the drop down box below.
 
Depending on the wind speeds and the height of the tower will determine how many wind power days that the Wind Compressor will produce energy free compressed air. 
 
Google “how to find wind speeds in my area” for sites that will help you size the tower height and determine the average wind speed for air powered turbines.
 
Normally the higher the tower the less turbulence. A tower between 70’ to 90’ located at least 300’ from structures and obstructions that could create turbulence has proven to provide the most efficient operation.
 
Wind turbulence can slightly shift the directional tail to either side of the direct air flow and reduce some efficiencies.
 
Units can be manufactured with lower gear ratios for areas where wind speeds are typically lower.
 
As the transition has moved from gas and diesel powered air compressors over to the Wind Compressor and because the Amish so much air to run their shop tools, some of the Amish do still maintain gas and diesel  compressors to supplement compressed air that is not produced in areas during extended calm periods.
 
Other Amish have hooked several 1000 gal LP tanks in tandem to store enough compressed air to run a woodworking shop tools for most of a day.
 
If you already have an electric compressor in a shop or factory the Wind Compressor can be used in tandem with pressure switches to allow the electric compressor to kick in when the air pressure drops to a preset point during calm periods.
 
The Wind Compressor also has automatic override and safety switches to prevent an over pressure situation as well as a manual shut-off switch to turn the compressor off when it is not needed.
 
The Wind Compressor Energy System comes with the air compressor, condenser tank, mounting hub for the high strength, lightweight, fiberglass turbine blades, the adjustable air pressure switch, the built in shock absorber to prevent over speed condition in high winds, a manual control shut off switch that is positioned at the bottom of the tower and a mounting flange that allows the wind compressor to be bolted up to the tower. Also included are the pneumatic piston, spring and cable that work with the manual shut off and the pressure regulator switch.
 
The blades are manufactured with high strength, lightweight fiberglass.
 
The price listed above reflects the 1-1/2 HP, as different sizes are selected below using the drop down boxes, the additional cost will incrementally add to the base price of the 1-1/2 HP model. 
 
The average delivery time is two weeks in the Continental US. Units are shipped directly from Maine.

Note: If you plan on making your own pipe tower, please for your safety and of others, realize the amount of pressure that will occur on the pipe joints in raising and lowering the tower. Threaded pipe joints alone will not be sufficient and will need to be reinforced with bolted or welded plates. In building any type of tip over tower the hinged base, gin pole and foundation will also need to be able to withstand the pressure applied when raising and lowering the tower. Generally the foundation is buried in solid concrete between 3’ deep and up to 4’ deep in loose soils.
 
Optional winches are also available to use with the pole tower. To give you an idea of the amount of weight, the type of cable, winch or tow vehicle needed to raise and lower the tower. The winch sold for a 70’ tower is rated for 8500 pounds and the winch for the 90’ tower is rated for 12,000 pounds. 
 
For you safety and others who will be servicing the compressor if in doubt of the structural integrity of the tower that you plan to use with the Wind Compressor, a mechanical engineer should be consulted. 
 
Warranty is limited to repair or replacement of the wind turbines/air compressors, winches or towers, or any of their parts, if they are found to be defective. This warranty is void if the installation was not performed in accordance with the manufacturer's installation procedures.  Buyer is responsible for installation and maintenance of all purchased equipment (wind turbines/air compressors, winches and towers). Should any person, whether customer, owner, installer, operator or otherwise suffer damage, injury or loss of life from any contact with any of the pre-mentioned equipment, Wind Compressor, LLC, Cottage Craft Works, LLC, its owners or legal representatives are not liable in any way whatsoever.
