Caps Australia introduces the R-Series compressors designed to offer excellence, innovation and peace-of-mind to compressed air equipment users.
The R-Series 90-160kW rotary screw air compressors manufactured by Ingersoll Rand incorporate proven designs and technologies in addition to several advanced features that ensure high levels of reliability, efficiency and productivity.
R-Series compressors utilise Progressive Adaptive Control (PAC) to protect the equipment and prevent unnecessary or emergency shutdowns of production lines caused by extreme situations or maintenance oversights.
PAC is an integrated, intelligent system that continually monitors key components and operating parameters, adjusting them to prevent unexpected downtime.
For example, should the filtration system on a variable speed unit start to clog or foul, the PAC will immediately display a real-time warning and maintenance indicator, but will not shut down the compressor if the situation deteriorates.
Instead, the PAC will reduce the airflow so as not to overload the compressor cooling system. This protects the equipment, while giving the end-user sufficient time to rectify the problem, and maintain production without shutdown.
Key features of R-Series rotary screw air compressors:
- Available in four standard variants, designed to suit the load profile and duty required
- Fixed Speed version is available with single-stage or two-stage airend, giving up to 15% improved efficiency
- Variable Speed version for applications with significant variation in air demand is also available in single- and two-stage airend driven by Nirvana Hybrid Permanent Magnet motor
