NEW ATLAS COPCO PORTABLE COMPRESSOR FEATURING IMPROVED NEW DESIGN AND CORROSION RESISTANT BODY
Atlas Copco has launched a new version of the XAS 36 portable compressor replacing the XAS 32 and the older XAS 36 models; the new unit features a number of improvements including a new body design.
The new model offers a wider choice of options than its predecessors, including an integral hose reel to improve the ease and safe handling of air lines, cold weather equipment for reliable operation at temperatures as low as -20°C as well as a toolbox.
Easy to move and simple to operate, the XAS 36 is ideally suited to the hire sector. Finished with a new type of corrosion resistant bodywork, with powder coated zincor steel for corrosion resistance, the unit is tough enough to cope with the rigours of daily site utility operations. The new improved stronger design also features heavy-duty hinges and a wider opening for better access to service areas.
The instrument panel is now recessed into the hood for easier access and is also protected by a transparent plastic cover. All major controls and monitoring systems are grouped together on this panel situated close to the outlet valves. Automatic safety functions will shut down the compressor if oil pressures drop or if air/oil mixture temperatures become too high.
Mounted on a compact single axle chassis the XAS 36 is powered by a proven three cylinder 15.4kW at 3600 r/min Yanmar diesel engine.
With an FAD (Free Air Delivery) of 35 l/s (74 cu.ft/min) at 7 bar (102 psig), the new compressor has sufficient capacity to power a full range of pneumatic tools including chipping hammers, breakers, hand drills and grinders.
As the unit is light and compact it does not need brakes and can be towed by a car. Designed to be stable at high transport speeds, it is also offered with a choice of towbar.
A regulator modulates engine speed to actual air demand. The engine runs at a capacity to suit the application to save fuel, reduce noise and cut both compressor and engine wear.
High quality acoustic shielding enables the XAS 36 to operate in noise sensitive areas. Its quiet running also allows the compressor to work at night, increasing productivity and customer value.
