Compressors reduce energy costs, extend service life
Kaeser Compressors, Fredericksburg, Va., introduced new SM 7.5, SM 10, SM 15 and SFC 8 compressor models designed to reduce energy costs, improve overall performance and extend service life.
The new SIGMA 06 airend with increased intake capacity combined with IE4 motors on the 10 and 15 hp models delivers up to 10% more flow than prior versions and as much as 43% more flow than comparable models.
The new update also includes a dual-flow fan combined with an external facing cooler, resulting in approach temperatures as low as 7°F. This improves the effectiveness of downstream dryers and filters in removing contaminants that impact product quality and tool life. The die-cast, sickle-shaped blade of the dual-flow fan reduces noise and cools both the drive motor and interior of the machine for greater reliability.
Sigma Control 2 comes as standard for all models, combining reliable energy efficient control with access to operating and maintenance information. A built-in web server and communications ports allows easy remote monitoring. The SFC 8 models feature a separate drive cabinet with dedicated cooling to protect the frequency converter and maintain optimum operating temperature.
The SM Series is available in 7.5-15 hp with flows from 19-55 cfm and pressures up to 217 psig. To reduce floor space and installation time, these models are also available with integrated dryers and as AIRCENTERS with an integrated dryer, filter and storage tank.
