Kaeser Compressors has broken ground on a new building expansion to their headquarters in Fredericksburg, Va.
Representatives from building contractor Emerald Construction, architect McKinney & Co., the Office of Economic Development and Tourism for Spotsylvania County, former Company President Reiner Mueller, and Kaeser employees attended the event.
Kaeser Kompressoren SE, the international headquarters of Kaeser Compressors Inc., has broken ground on a major expansion at its main location in Coburg, Germany.
The new facilities will primarily serve to manufacture the company's rotary screw compressors and will feature energy-saving and sustainable design practices. Construction is scheduled for completion in June 2016. When this project is finished, the new facilities will add more than 200,000 sq ft of manufacturing space.
Kaeser Compressors Inc. has brought the energy-efficiency savings of its world-renowned Sigma Profile to the low-pressure world with the launch of its new line of rotary screw blower packages. The EBS and FBS series are up to 35% more efficient than conventional blower designs.
Kaeser Compressors Inc. announced that the new AS series of rotary screw compressors is now available. These units deliver reliability, simple maintenance and sustainable energy savings, and are available in 20, 25 and 30 hp with flows from 64 to 143 cfm and pressures to 217 psig.
The new SFC 30S and SFC 30 variable speed drive rotary screw compressors from Kaeser Compressors are now available.
The SFC 30S has a flow range of 37 to 171 cu ft per minute (cfm) at 125 psig and is available with pressures up to 190 psig. The SFC 30 has a flow range of 47 to 202 cfm at 125 psig, with pressures up to 217 psig. Both models feature Siemens drive technology.
Kaeser's M350 has won the Gold 2013 King Award in the Fluid/Pneumatic Power category.
Delivering 1200 cfm at 125 psig, the versatile, fuel-efficient Mobilair M350 takes its place as the most powerful model in Kaeser Compressor's portable compressor line. The unit includes many of the same features as Kaeser's other Mobilair models—a large fuel tank, easy access to maintenance points, and an anti-frost valve—as well as a low carbon particulate production diesel engine, an SCR catalytic converter, and more.
Frank Mueller, president of Kaeser Compressors, Inc., was recently named president of the Compressed Air and Gas Institute (CAGI). Mueller will serve in the post for two years.
“CAGI has done an excellent job of raising awareness on the importance of compressed air,” Mueller commented. “During my term, we will continue to make CAGI the credible voice of the industry ensuring that end-users understand energy efficiency, proper installation and function in relation to their individual choices in compressed air systems.”
