Compact compressors are easy to maintain
09 November 2009
CompAir has introduced a 7-11kW range of oil-lubricated screw compressors are suitable for smaller production processes that require a dependable and constant source of high-quality air. The compressor range has been designed with as many components as possible integrated into the air end. As a result, there are only three hoses and fewer separate parts to maintain. This helps to improve overall machine reliability and reduces the length of time that the compressor is offline during routine servicing.
Low oil carryover and moisture content also ensure that the range delivers high-quality air at all times, helping to safeguard production integrity.
The new L07-L11 kW range is offered with CompAir’s free Assure extended warranty programme; a scheme based on the number of compressor operating hours, for up to 24,000 hours per machine. In practice, this means that an operator running a compressor for 40 hours per week, equating to an average of 2,000 per year, could receive a 12 year parts’ warranty, free of charge.
The new air-cooled compressors are available as stand-alone machines or fully integrated air stations to suit the application, offering pressures of 7.5, 10 and 13bar.
When installed as an AirStation, the separate components are mounted on to the receiver, saving up to 55% floor space and helping to reduce installation costs further. Called the L07FS and the L11FS, the AirStations include a refrigeration dryer with 3oC pressure dew point and a 270 litre air receiver.
With a small footprint of just 0.42 m2, the compressor range is one of the most compact in its class and can fit through a standard width doorframe. This means that it can be installed easily into the most convenient location for the operator – whether into an existing application where space is often at a premium or at a new site.
