New energy efficient, compact compressor range

Third Quarter 2021 Pneumatic systems & components

CompAir has launched a new series of energy-efficient oil-lubricated, rotary screw compressors, offering best-in-class performance in a compact design. Part of the CompAir L-Series range, the new compressors – available in 30 kW, 37 kW and 45 kW models – are offered in both fixed and regulated speeds. Each unit is capable of delivering consistent, high-quality and cost-effective compressed air, providing pressure ranges from 5 to 13 bar and volume flow between 1,33 to 8,67 m3/min.

All compressors are powered by an IE4-IP55 motor and drive system with a new, improved filter design that reduces running and maintenance costs. This also improves air flow to reduce pressure drop, with low idle power consumption for further savings. At just 1,58 m2, all units have a small footprint, making them ideal for installations where space is at a premium. Models in the range also enjoy low noise and vibration levels, meaning the unit can be situated closer to production environments without special foundations, further reducing installation costs.

They also feature the new Delcos XL SE controller, a touch-screen control system that offers insightful monitoring capabilities. The system is fully integrated with the iConn cloud-based air management platform, enabling operators to easily manage, optimise and improve their compressed air services. The units can be monitored remotely, so operators can ensure any potential issues are quickly resolved and performance is optimised at all times. These new units are easy to install and service and owners can benefit from increased control and monitoring capabilities, leading to fewer risks, improved productivity and reduced energy consumption.
