Original Press Release:



"Airbox" & "Airbox Center" - High Quality Compressed Air Production



Quiet, Efficient, Oil-free

Admittedly, the idea of installing a dry-running reciprocating compressor within a soundproof enclosure isn't exactly new. Kaeser, however, has now combined this proven concept with the very latest compressor technology to deliver efficient product solutions that ensure high quality compressed air production at all times: The "Airbox" and "Airbox Center". These advanced industrial reciprocating compressor systems provide air deliveries from 0.25 to 0.9 m³/min with motor powers ranging from 2.4 to 7.5 kW

Offering users exceptional flexibility, the new "Airbox" models are available with five different motor powers and a choice of two package sizes. At the heart of each unit lies a dry-running, directly coupled reciprocating compressor from Kaeser's renowned "KCT" range. Constructed to highest industrial quality standards the compressor is powered by an "eff 1" rated drive motor that combines both outstanding performance and energy efficiency.

Another key feature of the "Airbox" range is its innovative cooling system: Clever air flow design ensures optimal system cooling which, unusually for a reciprocating compressor, allows 100 % duty cycles and dependable operation in ambient temperatures as high as 45 °C. Moreover, the "Airbox" concept is also characterised by ultra-low sound levels of between only 59 to 67 dB(A), depending on the system's motor size. Best possible efficiency and reliability are guaranteed by the electronic "Sigma Control basic" control system.

"Airbox Center": The all-in-one compact solution
User's looking for an efficient turnkey compressed air supply solution need look no further than the "Airbox Center" series: A soundproofed "Airbox" compressor - as described above - forms the core of all "Airbox Center" models which are also available in five different motor powers; air deliveries and performance values are therefore the same. The key differences however are that in addition to efficient and quiet compressed air production, "Airbox Center" models also provide application-tailored compressed air treatment and storage. Here's how: The compressor is mounted on a 200 l or 270 l (for the three larger models) capacity air receiver and each system features an integrated refrigeration dryer. A combination filter can also be installed downstream from the dryer as required. Consequently, the "Airbox Center" is an all-in-one compressed air supply system, yet requires hardly any more installation space than a comparable "Airbox" model.

No matter whether you choose the "Airbox" or "Airbox Center" version, these compact systems ensure a dependable and efficient supply of quality compressed air to keep maintenance and running costs to an absolute minimum.
