Atlas Copco Construction Equipment’s XATS 900E electric portable air compressor features four preset flow and pressure selections to give contractors versatility and rental centers greater flexibility in their fleet offering for improved ROI.
Atlas Copco displayed the compressor Sept. 26-28 at booth 2121-N during MINExpo International.
The compressor features a high-efficiency 160-kilowatt WEG 22 motor. Despite the industry-wide focus on Tier 4 Final regulations, the XATS 900E’s electric motor exempts it from emission regulations, so it’s usable in any state, province or territory.
In addition, the electric motor gives contractors a cost-effective alternative to traditional diesel-fueled air compressors because electricity prices are less volatile than fuel costs. The XATS 900E operates at a very quiet 73 decibels — about the same as a vacuum cleaner — which allows contractors to work in noise-sensitive areas, such as near hospitals or schools.
Atlas Copco designed the XATS 900E for dependable operation and high-quality results. For example, its Star-Delta starter reduces the starting current protecting the compressor, and has no limits on number of starts.
The compressor comes standard equipped with an aftercooler and water separator with fine filters to reduce moisture as well as oil carry-over in the output air, and by-pass should non-filtered air be desired.
