Everybody loves a good streamlining. And if you have numerous air compressors in your rental fleets for different applications like gunite, horizontal directional drilling and sandblasting, we have some good news. Atlas Copco’s new XAS 950 air compressor can handle them all, offering high compressed air flows for just about any job that needs it. The compressor shoots up to an impressive 950 cubic feet of air per minute (with up to 200 PSI), making it as powerful as it is versatile.
The XAS 950 has replaced the old pneumatic regulation system with a technologically versatile controller with variable pressure and flow. The engine’s top-mount configuration has allowed Atlas Copco to include their wrap-around canopy, a popular compressor feature that keeps the noise level down so it can run in residential or densely populated areas with minimal noise complaints. It’s compact, powerful and quiet, to boot. On top of that, the compressor’s base model comes standard with the package that’s going to help renters achieve an ultra-wide range of applications without the need to option all the most useful components. It’s all about getting that serious return on rental for fleet managers.
Its small size allows for enhanced manoeuvrability, which comes in especially handy in tight spots. And no pricey logistics companies are needed, since the machine can simply be pulled behind a truck. Operators will even save money on fuel, because the advanced controller allows the compressor to run lower loads as needed (with the machine automatically recognising the adjusted load size and then cutting down on fuel consumption).
Even the air compressor’s serviceability is all about user-friendliness. Fluids are plumbed to the outside of the containment for simple draining. Gull wing doors make for easy (not to mention safe) access to the engine and electrical components, the air end and just about any filter you can imagine. Basically, no crawling is needed here. That setup can cut service times in half, which saves renters and fleet managers alike from both labour and downtime standpoints. So everybody wins — and wins even faster.
And speaking of winning, the XAS 950 is accompanied by the Perkins Rental Support Programme. A friend to rental fleets everywhere, the programme enables stores to save precious time by self-supporting when it comes to service needs. It provides direct access to service training, electronic tooling, parts ordering (often complete with same-day shipping), warranty claim submission and a host of other offerings. Without a third party needed to handle any issues that pop up, fleet managers can get the compressors back in the rental queue in no time and keep that fresh air flowing.
These energy-efficient, best-in-class workhorses tackle applications such as drill and blast, shallow depth drilling, geotechnical exploration drilling, abrasive blasting, pipeline pigging, drying and purging. Aligning pressure or flow per application not only increases versatility but also overall performance.
