Hillhead 2018, a busy show and a big success

Hillhead 2018, a busy show and a big success

Ap Air was at Hillhead showing the benefits of a rooftop unit on quarrying and construction machinery. The sun was shining on Hillhead Quarry near Buxton, Derbyshire. The weather brought out a record attendance of nearly 20,000 visitors.

Ap Air was showcasing the all-electric Red Dot rooftop unit, the self-contained air conditioning system to fit on the roof of your cab that then kicks out 12,000 btu of cooling power.  People were interested in an all-electric system, due to the increasing cost of running standard r134a systems due to increasing refrigerant prices and failing systems on old machinery. 

We had a great time at the show seeing what all the major plant manufacturers were offering, and checking out all the heavy plant demos.
