Direct drive compressors reduce noise levels

July 14, 2008

Kaeser Compressors’ direct drive series is designed for efficiency, reliability and minimal maintenance. The units are available from 25 to 450 hp, in flows from 72 -2003 cfm and pressures to 217 psig. Kaeser’s state-of-the-art compressors feature our optimized Sigma Profile airend, patent-pending Sigma Control and the latest one-to-one direct drive technology. These are true direct drive compressors – with an oversized airend connected directly to the motor via a maintenance-free coupling for “zero-loss” transmission efficiency. Kaeser’s unique cooling air flow design significantly reduces noise levels and provides superior cooling. Plus, all units are fitted with a re-designed, high-efficiency separator system for extremely low oil-carryover – perfect for all of your instrument and bulk air needs!
