Kaeser Belt Drive Rotary Screw Compressor

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 AS series features a new airend specifically designed to optimize performance and efficiency. The new airend design along with the TEFC premium efficiency motors result in an efficiency advantage over the competition as high as 30%. The cooling design ensures the overall package is ready for severe operating conditions.

Maintenance accessibility has also been improved. The units' new compact design and two large hinged service doors make it possible to service the unit from one side. The automatic belt tensioning device prolongs belt life and simplifies service, while maintaining drive efficiency. AS models are also available with integrated dryers.
