Kaeser Mobilair electric compressors are green and cost effective
The Kaeser Mobilair electric portable compressor range delivers zero emissions and has the potential to deliver substantial operating cost savings — as long as you have a handy power supply.
The new products are powered by motors rated at 15-25kW, and form part of the family of Mobilair M27, M31 and M50 compressors.
"From large building projects to city-centre sites or indoor operations, emission-free electric-powered portable compressors are exceptionally quiet and are significantly easier on the wallet than diesel units," Kaeser says.
"These machines are ideal for environmentally sensitive areas such as clean air zones or building sites near hospitals. They are also perfect for tunnel construction or as bridge compressors for industrial stations," the company adds.
"On large construction projects, where power hook-ups are usually available, the electric compressors make even more sense, as electricity is generally much cheaper than diesel fuel. Another advantage: electric compressors cost far less to maintain."
The IE3 motors meet the IP55 enclosure and Class F insulation standards, and comply with and exceed prevailing Australian GEMS regulations for three-phase electric motors.
Flow rates range between 2 and 5 m3/min for pressures from 7 to 14 bar.
The Mobilair electric portable compressors are equipped as standard with Kaeser's Anti-Frost Control and the Sigma Control Smart controller, which allows for quick and simple setup and operation.
The models are available with a choice of a rotational moulded polyethylene or metal enclosure and in both road-going and stationary versions.
