CompAir has launched a 7kW to 11kW range of oil-lubricated screw compressors designed to deliver high reliability with low service and installation costs.

The machines are suitable for smaller production processes that require a dependable and constant source of high-quality air.

The company has designed the compressor range with as many components integrated in to the air end as possible.

As a result, there are only three hoses and fewer separate parts to maintain.

This helps to improve overall machine reliability and reduces the length of time that the compressor is off line during routine servicing, for better productivity.

Low oil carryover and moisture content also ensure that the range delivers high-quality air at all times, helping to safeguard production integrity.

The L07-L11 kW range is offered with CompAir’s free Assure extended warranty programme – a scheme based on the number of compressor operating hours, for up to 24,000 hours per machine.

In practice, this means that an operator running a compressor for 40 hours per week, equating to an average of 2,000 per year, could receive a 12-year parts warranty, free of charge.

Compared to other compressors in this class, the L07-L11 range offers extended service schedules up to 4,000 hours, according to CompAir.

By reducing the frequency of routine maintenance, machine availability is improved and the requirement for oil changes reduced, enabling operators to save on maintenance and disposal costs.

The design offers easy access for faster routine maintenance, helping to reduce the time that the compressor needs to be out of service.

The range features a simpler design with fewer components, meaning service times are improved further.

The air-cooled compressors are available as stand-alone machines or fully integrated Airstations to suit the application, offering pressures of 7.5, 10 and 13 bar.

When installed as an Airstation, the separate components are mounted on to the receiver, saving up to 55 per cent floor space and helping to reduce installation costs.

The L07FS and the L11FS Airstations include a refrigeration dryer with 3C pressure dew point and a 270-litre air receiver.

With a footprint of just 0.42m2, the compressor range is compact and can fit through a standard-width door frame.

This means that it can be installed into convenient locations – whether in to an existing application or at a new site.

The compressors can be sited at the point of use rather than outside the main production area, helping to improve site security.

The range features the Delcos Pro Controller to provide a range of management features to suit the application.

These can range from a simple level of control, using for example, the real-time clock, which can start or stop the compressor at preset times to more in-depth control of parameters such as error logs, interface to external devices and software upgrades.
