Kaeser Compressors (Fredericksburg, VA) introduces the new SM 7.5, SM 10, SM 15, and SFC 8 models, designed to reduce customers' energy costs, improve overall performance and extend service life. The new SIGMA 06 airend with increased intake capacity combined with IE4 motors on the 10 and 15 hp models delivers up to 10% more flow than prior versions and as much as 43% more flow than comparable competitive models. Additional benefits include:
- Specific power (compressor efficiency) improvements of up to 10% over prior models; it is up to 23% better than comparable competitive units.
- A dual-flow fan combined with an external facing cooler, resulting in approach temperatures as low as 7 °F. This improves the effectiveness of downstream dryers and filters in removing contaminants that impact product quality and tool life. The die-cast, sickle-shaped blade of the dual-flow fan reduces noise and cools both the drive motor and interior of the machine for greater reliability.
- Sigma Control 2, standard for all models, which combines reliable energy efficient control with access to operating and maintenance information. A built-in web server and communications ports allow easy remote monitoring.
The SM Series is available in 7.5 to 15 hp with flows from 19 to 55 cfm and pressures up to 217 psig. To reduce floor space and installation time, these models are also available with integrated dryers and as AIRCENTERS with an integrated dryer, filter, and storage tank.
