Specifically designed for trade and craft applications, Kaeser Compressors says its range of SXC screw compressors combines exceptional efficiency and cost-effective performance with super-quiet compressed air production, treatment and storage.
Kaeser says the SXC compressors are the ideal replacement for older reciprocating compressors that, while working reliably, use excessive amounts of power and are therefore expensive to run, costing potentially hundreds of dollars more than necessary. Older compressors can also be excessively noisy.
Under the SXC’s rotation-sintered polyethylene enclosure is a complete compressed air supply system. There are four models in the line-up, and Kaeser says they are based on an innovative tower concept which integrates a screw compressor, a refrigeration dryer and a compressed air receiver, all within a single compact unit that has a small footprint of only 0.62 square metres. All condensate accumulating in the refrigeration dryer and air receiver is removed reliably and without pressure loss via an electronically-controlled condensate drain.
At the heart of each unit lies a Kaeser rotary screw compressor featuring a specially-designed screw compressor block with flow-optimised ‘Sigma Profile’ rotors which deliver more compressed air for less energy consumption. With models ranging in power from 2.2 to 5.5 kW for flow rates from 0.26 to 0.8 cubic metres per minute (at 8 bar), Kaeser says there’s always an appropriate SXC configuration to meet the needs of a wide range of applications.
At 61.5 centimetres wide, Kaeser’s SXC models are barely wider than your average washing machine, but offer the same benefits of much larger compressed air systems, according to Kaeser. They come with the company’s Sigma Control 2 controller which features efficient start-stop control and ensures secure operation through continuous monitoring of the whole SXC unit. A plain text display ensures efficient communication.
