Kaeser has launched its lat­est gen­er­a­tion SM se­ries ro­tary screw com­pres­sors

Earthmovers & Excavators - - Plant & Equipment -

The new SM se­ries ro­tary screw com­pres­sors are avail­able with drive pow­ers of 5.5 to

9kW, pro­duce air flow rates of 0.59 to 1.62 cu­bic me­tres and are de­signed for pres­sures of 7.5 to 15 bar.

Kaeser says the SM se­ries of­fers greater ef­fi­ciency, with the SM13 and SM16 equipped with pre­mium IE4 mo­tors.

The re­sult is bet­ter com­pres­sor per­for­mance, re­duced en­ergy costs and sig­nif­i­cantly en­hanced com­pressed air pro­duc­tion.

The SM se­ries mod­els are also equipped with the new Sigma 06 screw com­pres­sor block, which fea­ture re­fined Sigma Pro­file ro­tors. When com­bined with the IE4 mo­tor, the com­pres­sor block can re­duce the com­pres­sor’s en­ergy con­sump­tion by up to 13 per cent.

All SM se­ries com­pres­sors also in­cor­po­rate a Sigma Con­trol 2 unit. This in­ter­nal con­troller can ad­just com­pres­sor per­for­mance to match the com­pressed air con­sump­tion to fur­ther im­prove ef­fi­ciency. The phys­i­cal con­trol unit fea­tures an easy-to-read dis­play al­low­ing ma­chine in­for­ma­tion to be viewed at a glance.

Kaeser says that where mul­ti­ple com­pres­sors are be­ing used as part of a com­pressed air sta­tion, the Sigma Con­trol 2 can be in­te­grated with Kaeser’s master com­pressed air man­age­ment con­troller Sigma Air Man­ager 4.0 (SAM 4.0). The master con­troller mon­i­tors and ad­justs all com­po­nents within a com­pressed air sup­ply sys­tem to en­sure no wastage is oc­cur­ring.

Main­te­nance has been stream­lined on the SM se­ries, with all work able to com­pleted from one side of the init. The re­mov­able hous­ing cover pro­vides easy ac­cess to each com­po­nent. In ad­di­tion, fluid lev­els and drive belt ten­sion can be checked with­out the need to re­move the cover via an in­spec­tion win­dow.
