SUDBURY, ONTARIO – Investigate the money-saving potential of Portolites from HEROLD SUPPLY. These are compressed-air-operated lighting generators designed for industrial and mining needs. The high cost of providing temporary electrical power to an underground work site is avoided, and at the same time illumination ensures the safety of workers.

The Portolite generator is, as the name implies, fully portable. Operation requires only compressed air, which is readily available in most industrial and mining workplaces. Since the Portolite system does not burn combustible materials, there are no harmful fumes or pollution produced (as there are with typical generators). That makes the workplace environment cleaner, too, and eliminates potential fuel spills. Their quiet operation reduces noise in the workplace as well.

All Portolite air-operated generators are lightweight. They range from 70 to 140 lb and are available in heavy gauge steel for increased durability. A typical system can illuminate a work area 12 by 12 by 60 metres. The 12- or 120-V power that it supplies can also be used for low-amp power tools or small equipment operation.
