New DrillAir Compressors from Atlas Copco

Published: 17/6, 2019

Atlas Copco has introduced Stage V compliant diesel engines to its DrillAir range of high-pressure portable compressors. Mainly used for ground engineering, pipeline services, water well and geothermal drilling; the DrillAir range encompasses several large compressor models with operating pressures between 290 and 508 psi (20 and 35 bar) and flows up to 1,483 ft3 (42 m3) per minute. Additionally, Atlas Copco has applied the new Xc4004 Smart Air controller to this compressor range.

These developments, in combination with the AirXpert 2.0 performance management system, mean that drilling companies can both reduce engine emission levels and improve their operating performance.

Following the latest emission regulations, a Stage V compliant Scania engine will now be at the heart of all new DrillAir compressors. This is with the exception of the Y35 and V39 models that will be Stage V compliant in a later phase. This introduction boosts the efficiency of the DrillAir compressors by as much as 4.5%.

In applications where fuel expenses are calculated per meter drilled, it’s key to have the best in class efficient compressor as feed air for any drill rig. Atlas Copco goes beyond introducing Stage V compatible engines. The V21 and H23 DrillAir compressors feature the newest in-house designed Atlas Copco air element, further increasing efficiency levels by another 2%. In addition, the patented XPR system (Extended Pressure Range) extends the pressure band of the Y35 DrillAir compressor from 208 to 508 psi (15 to 35 bar). Consequently, the Y35 can be used for a variety of applications; making it the preferred choice for rental companies seeking to increase their return on investment. The IP67 rating of Drillair motors increases the reliability of the improved and patented AirXpert 2.0 performance management system. Less connections and a more robust design protect the system from vibrations and shocks. This performance management system boosts productivity, either by providing additional flow or by stabilising either flow or pressure.
