Atlas Copco Launches New 8 Series Compressor Range
Atlas Copco has launched the 8 Series, a range of 10 new air compressors. All models in the 8 Series range fall below the 750kg limit and therefore require no special driving license to tow. Reliability, efficiency and higher utilisation levels, coupled with superior performance, enable the range to offer a maximum return on investment for rental and construction partners.
The compressors’ compact and lightweight package mean that despite incorporating a full-size fuel tank, aftercooler and generator, all models fall below 750kg. The largest compressor in the range can produce 5m3/min of air and can still be towed by a normal passenger car. However, the inclusion of a new and updated HardHat® canopy ensures the 8 Series models are tough enough for the harshest conditions.
Incorporating reliable Kubota engines, the compressors feature an anti airlock system for guaranteed starting. Service is made simple as all parts are easily accessible and the filtration uses a simple spin on system. Remarkably, the 8 Series only requires an hour’s total service time over two years of operation.
The 8 Series line-up initially comprises of 10 models, ranging from the XAS 38 Kd, with a free air delivery of 2m3/min, to the XAS 88 Kd, with an air delivery of 5m3/min. Two models in the range come with built-in generators.
Ben Van Hove, Vice-President, Marketing at Atlas Copco’s Portable Energy division, said: “The launch of the revolutionary 8 Series is the result of more than 10 years of continuous development. Throughout the design and engineering process, we have focused on advances that provide tangible benefits to our customers, without compromising a single aspect of design or performance. As a result, the 8 Series is versatile, efficient and a valuable ally in maximising uptime on site.”
The 8 Series range of compressors are available with a buy back guarantee from Atlas Copco, which ensures the compressors’ asset value and allows owners to easily calculate the capital return.
