Kaeser Releases Variable Speed Drive Screw Compressors

The two new models feature Siemens drive technology

Kaeser Variable Speed Drive Screw Compressors

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 has improved these SFCs' specific power by up to 6% through a combination of true direct drive design, premium efficiency motors, lower internal pressure differential and optimized airends. These variable frequency drive units are up to 25% more efficient than the competition. Additional built-in heat recovery options provide more energy savings potential.

New features include an enhanced cooling design, eco-friendly filter element, integral moisture separator with drain, and an electronic thermal management system. These variable speed drive compressors also come standard with Sigma Control 2. This controller offers compressor control and monitoring with communications capabilities for integration into plant control/monitoring systems. The SFC 30S and SFC 30 are also available with an integrated dryer for higher compressed air quality.
