Variable pressure

ATLAS Copco has launched a compressor that operates at three different pressure levels for heavy-duty applications.

The XASE745 Gd is an oil-injected rotary screw machine that delivers 745 litres/sec of air at 7 bar; 730 litres at 8.6 bar; or 670 litres at 10.3 bar. The compressor is powered by a 450 hp Detroit Diesel engine.

A stepless regulator provides the required pressure, and power is adjusted automatically to the correct setting.
